Can anyone advise what is the best way and the cheapest fare to obtain to fly from Lima to Quito? I have been searching on the net but not much luck. Buying it through the agency in UK seems expensive. My boyfriend currently in Peru` asked at the travel agency and quoted abt $300 was wondering if there is anything cheaper than that or is it the best fare?

I'm arriving in Lima airport on May 22nd at 5.30pm so I'm looking for a connecting flight from there to Quito the same night preferably.

Does anyone have suggestions?

I thinks this flight is expensive wherever you look - the border crossing pushes the price right up (so ive been told!). The cheapest i could find was $298 from though i think they have very regular flights so you should be able to get a connection.

I got buses down and flew back, id recommend buses if you have lots of time - would have taken 2 or 3 days but i stopped a lot (sure you'll want to as well after a day or 2 on a bus!) and you can get cama buses from Lima which are fab!

Have fun!

Thanks Loz.

I don't have much I'm flying in from the UK and going to Quito to meet with my boyfriend and his travel companion who are terminating the inca trail today and heading first to Lima then Ecuador to meet me in Quito before we all head to Colombia.:(

Yeah $298 is the price I saw too - TACA are doing $292 -just checked today seemed it went down by $10 since the other day.

The other option I have is to bus it from Lima but I have read from research done that is abt 30H trip is that correct? - I dont mind the lenght if I was travelling with my boyfriend and the other dude, but I rather not on my own esp considering I speak little spanish and will be jet lagged!

Seems like I have no choice! :(
