Airport near Puno - Inca Manco Capac in Juliaca Feb 22, 2009
If you want to go to the Titicaca Lake, you have to go to Puno and if you are going to Puno by air, you have to use this airport. Juliaca is located close to Puno, just 30min away.

This aiport is the highest in Peru and is small, only for domestic flights.

Here there are a few things you should know:

-Because of the altitude, walk slow and take your time at your arrival.

-This airport is located in Juliaca, in order to go to Puno you can either take a colectivo or a taxi. If you are taking a cab, do not forget to bargain the price.

-There's nothing to do in Juliaca, so try to go to Puno and if you have to spend a night in the area, do it in Puno.

-It's a small airport, so it's not automatized.

-As in any Peruvian airport, you have to pay an airport fee before the departure

Personally, I don't like to fly straight from Lima to Juliaca because of the altitude, which can be too much.

Hi Naoko. Well, there's only 1 airline flying between Juliaca and Lima, and it's LAN. Actually check the roundtrips, usually they are cheaper than 1way ticket and you could get a round trip one and just loose the other part of the ticket.... the other possibility is taking a bus from Puno, will last long... check this website: This is a good bus, more expensive, but comfortable and safe, important if you are taking a night bus :) If you need further help, just let me know.

Hi, My name is Naoko and I'm visiting Peru and bolivia in October. I have a question about the flight from Juliaca to Lima. I will have to come back to Lima from La paz, Bolivia and I've heard that the cheapest&fast way is to take a bus to Juliaca then fly to Lima. But seems like LAN is the only airline flying between Juliaca and Lima and it's pretty expensive. Are there any other cheap flights? or any other way to get to Lima? I don't have many days to travel, so trying to find out the best way to go back to Lima...If you have any advice...Please....Naoko
