Airport VIP Caral Domestic Lounge

Arriving Lima just after midnight next week. Have a connecting Flight to Arequipa early morning with 6-7 hrs. to spare. Appreciate feedback to following queries;

- Arriving from Canada, so is this the right lounge for Arequipa transfer, and if so easy to find ?

- Does lounge have a luggage storage facility, and can one stretch out for a reasonably comfortable snooze ?

- The approx. cost.

Thanks very much in advance for all answers!

When arriving in Lima you first have to clear immigration, claim your luggage and get through customs. Then you can re-check-in for your flight to Arequipa. At the domestic departure you find the tiny VIP Caral Lounge. When I'm informed correctly you have access with a Priority Pass or can pay US$ 30 to enter. But be aware that the domestic departure area is closed from around mid-night to 02.00 am, sometimes 02.30 am.

No showers at the Caral VIP lounge, its just a tiny place

I do not Even think you will be allowed inside the National departure lounge so many hours in advance

Gracias Sunflower & Xochitl ; I will try my luck after 2 am, ( should be around 1'30 am once I've cleared immigration and customs). If all fails with Caral lounge, do you think the main /common lounge is fairly safe to catch a few winks ?

Many travelers "camp" by the food court area.

Why do you think Caral lounge does't have showers? They say they do:

You are right ! My mistake.

When I went and visit it, I did not saw the shower area.

Its a tiny lounge though.

As you need to enter the country first, you will onle be able to use the national Departure lounge.

The other two are after you pass immigration and are ready to board the plane to depart from Lima.
