Around 15 soles
I am in Lima and have a flight back tomorrow 31st at 12:40 pm in the afternoon. When I came here I took the taxi green and it cost us Sola 45 from the airport to our hotel in Mira Flores two days ago. Today the hotell tells me that because it is NY even tomorrow all taxi to airport have a premium and it will cost me sola 75 tomorrow afternoon. Is that he norm?
Is there a taxi stand in Cuzco airport? How much would it cost to take a taxi from there to Ollantaytambo? I was quoted US$45 by a hotel, which seems a bit pricey to me...
Hotels charge $45 to $ 50 from Cusco airport to Ollantaytambo . We just got back from the area. There are taxis at cusco airport and it will take you into Cusco for 15 sola and from there you can get shared taxis to Olly. We did not do this as we thought we would be tired etc. after the long flights but in hindsight we could have done it. Everything has a price and is negotiable but there may be risks involved....or so we are told. On the whole we did not have any problems and even used their combis and tuktuks and never felt we were being cheated or anything. but we did pay dollar fifty for that first ride
Arranging a taxi at the airport can save you a few bucks but not a lot. If you do not know how you will feel when you step off a plane at 11,000 feet I think it's better to arrange the pickup from the hotel, nice to see that sign with your name on it when you are feeling a bit woozy.
S/.45 is the norm for Lima to Miraflores with a Secure Taxi, I like Green Taxi, they are always reliable and charge S/.45. In Cusco there is the first line of taxis as you leave the baggage area that are super expensive. Go past them to the next group of taxis drivers. They will usually quote S/.20 to begin but you can negociate them down to S/15 - S/.10.
