f you plan to tour the city in a taxi, remember that taxis are not fitted with meters, so agree on a rate before getting in.
Peru features independent, informal taxis, where cars do not feature the same color and are identified only by small stickers placed on the windshield. As they do not belong to a formally established taxi firm, they provide neither security nor guarantees.
Before taking a taxi, travelers would be advised to check with a trustworthy source on the approximate fare for the distance to be traveled. This will help avoid problems when it is time to pay the cab fare.
You may also take a taxi registered in the Metropolitan Lima Taxi Service, supervised by the Lima Town Hall and painted the same shade of bright yellow.
