Informações práticas sobre Lima

Passear pela cidade

Lima is divided into four quarters, which are small enough to explore on foot. Travelling from one section to another is best done in a bus or taxi, however. The regular buses serving the city consist of microbus vans and larger 'school bus' vehicles. These are plentiful and inexpensive, although uncomfortable (especially in the heat of summer) and frequently involved in accidents. These 'micros' and 'combis' can be flagged down in the street. Destinations are usually not marked so ask the driver before boarding. Taxicabs are also plentiful and cheap, of no particular make or model, but recognisable by plastic signs on the windshield, and often the generic yellow of taxi cabs the world over. Taxis are not metered and the fare should be agreed before departure. It is a good idea to find out how much they generally cost to avoid being overcharged as a foreigner. Driving in Lima is hazardous: not only are the roads in generally bad condition, but local drivers are reckless and aggressive. Car rental is therefore best avoided. For those determined to rent cars, however, there are numerous rental agencies and having your own vehicle is wonderful when heading out of the city on excursions.

Hora local

Local time is GMT -5.

Eletricidade

Electrical current is 220 volts, 60Hz (Arequipa 50Hz). Two-pronged plugs with flat blades as well as plugs with two round prongs are in use.

Moeda

The official currency is Nuevo Sol (PEN), divided into 100 céntimos. Visa is the most widely accepted credit card, but all major international credit cards are accepted in many, but not all, establishments. Outside of big cities facilities may be more limited. US Dollars are the easiest currency to exchange and plenty of restaurants, hotels and shops in the main cities accept dollars for payment. Casas de cambio (exchange bureaux) often give better rates than hotels and banks and can be found in any town on the tourist circuit. ATMs are available in the main cities.

Comunicações

The international access code for Peru is +51. Mobile phone operators offer GSM and 3G networks with coverage limited to major towns and cities; there are roaming agreements with most international operaters. Peru is well connected to the internet with a proliferation of inexpensive internet kiosks (cabinas públicas) available in most towns and cities.

Número de emergência

Emergencies: 105 (Police); 117 (Ambulance).
