By air:
Peru is linked by direct flights and connections to the main cities of Europe, Asia and the Americas. The main port of entry is International Jorge Chavez Airport (Callao, Lima). The airports of Arequipa, Cuzco, Chiclayo, Iquitos, Pisco, Pucallpa, Tacna and Trujillo are also equipped to receive international flights.

One can enter Peru via the Pan-American Highway through the city of Tacna in the south, or through the city of Tumbes in the north. Access is also possible from the city of Loja (Ecuador) which is connected by road to the city of Piura. There are two entry routes from Bolivia: Copacabana – Yunguyo – Puno; and La Paz – Desaguadero – Puno.

By river:
The only point of entry by river is along the Amazon, with private rivercraft services coming from the cities of Leticia (Colombia) and Tabatinga (Brazil) to the port of Iquitos (Peru).

By lake:
Lake Titicaca links Peru to neighbouring Bolivia, with which Peru enjoys bustling trade and tourism links.

By sea:
Cruise liners call at Callao, Peru’s main port. Some cruises also call at the ports of Salaverry (Trujillo) and Chimbote (Ancash), in northern Peru; and at San Martin (Ica) and Matarani (Arequipa) in the south.
