Arriving Lima after midnight


Visiting SA in October, first stop Lima. Our flight will arrive shortly after midnight from Santiago, so by the time going through immigration etc will be after 1 am. We are not sure whether to book a taxi to hotel (Miraflores) or wait till 7 am for the airport express thus save a nights accommodation at the hotel? If we stay till dawn break is there a place we can rest a bit? I understand there are a few lounges that can be accessed by phuchasing a pass. Are they accessible if we arriving ? And how to get there? Thanks for any suggestions.

I recommend to take a taxi and go to the hotel. You can take a taxi called taxi green at the airport just after you passed customs, the price to miraflores is around 60 soles (20 usd). The option to wait for bus express until 7am is not good because you wont find a good place to rest.

The national lounge is available after checking in your flight

I do not think it's opened throughout the night.

People stay around the food court.

I would rather book the night at the airport hotel for a good night's rest

My husband and I are also arriving at midnight. Can we just take a taxi at the airport? Hopefully, there are taxis at that time. Do I need to arrange before hand.
