Renting a Car ?
There are several places to rent a car in Lima. One thing to consider when deciding what sort of vehicle, you would like to rent, is if you would like to independently explore the roads around the Cordillera Blanca with your rental car. While a 4 x 4 vehicle isn’t necessary, the dirt and gravel roads off of the highway can be rough, rocky and filled with holes, so a vehicle with a higher clearance is best to avoid damages.
