Because of the location of the port area, most of the cruise
lines run shuttles to two large shopping malls. Callao is a large working port. At the malls there will
be lots of taxi drivers and private tour operator there.
If you know where you want to go it is easy. We always
walk through the mall to a different opening, again always
taxis waiting to take you somewhere. You arrange by the
location the price. It is always much cheaper outside the main
drop off area. Be sure to take a photo of the entrance y.ou are using as the mall can be confusing. You arrange price
by the location, rather than a meter ride. Traffic is very
bad in Lima, and do take this into consideration when DYI
tour. You will need to return to the mall to get back to your
ship. It can take between 20 to 40 minutes to get to the malls
