Taxis are the best way to get around Lima. There are always taxis cruising the main streets; look for taxis painted with a company's logo and that have the driver's license prominently displayed. You need to negotiate the fare before you get in. A journey between two adjacent neighborhoods should cost between S/6 and S/10; longer trips run between S/15 and S/30. If you hire one of the taxis parked in front of the tourist hotels, the price will be roughly double. If you're going to spend the day sightseeing, consider hiring a taxi for the day, which should cost about S/30–S/40 per hour.
