Once your cheap flight to Peru lands, you can travel conveniently in buses, trains, and taxis, all at fairly reasonable prices. While buses are a cheaper option, costing somewhere between $0.20- $0.40, taxis may charge somewhere between $2 and $2.40. Trains are another typical Peruvian experience, albeit a slower mode of transport. As distances between various tourist attractions are quite vast, travellers generally fly to their destinations.
