Trujillo Airport: Captain FAP International Airport Carlos Martínez de Pinillos
The gateway to ancient cultures
Peru is a great country. If you want to travel outside Lima, you have several transportation options: the rented car, the bus or the plane. From Lima you can reach 38 places in Peru with the latter. One of them is the coastal city of Trujillo, capital of the Huanchaco region in the province of Trujillo.
The airport is officially called Captain FAP Carlos Martinez de Pinillos International Airport and is located 11 kilometers from the city. Visitors to Trujillo usually come to see the famous pre-Columbian sites. On one side is Chan Chan, the capital of the Chimu Empire, and probably the largest adobe city in the world.
It is also worth seeing the temples of the sun and the moon in the Moche Valley. In the latter, colorful murals are still preserved. But also in terms of water sports Trujillo is recommended: the place Huanchaco is right next to the city and is the surf most popular by surfers. Otherwise, it is worth visiting the city and see what the calendar of events has to offer, because Trujillo is one of the cities with the greatest cultural interest in Peru.
The airport of Trujillo
The airport is modern and equipped with Wi-Fi and even showers. From Trujillo, airlines Avianca, Latam Peru and LC Peru operate for about 60 US dollars several times a day to Lima. What is new is that the airline Movil Air, which was known for small aircraft flights, for example through the Nazca Lines, now offers a flight to Chachapoya. Tickets cost $ 59. Although a flight is a good way to save time from one place to another, but in Trujillo you should pay attention to one thing: The Captain FAP Carlos Martinez de Pinillos International Airport is small and not yet equipped with the latest technology. For example, in dense fog flights it may have to be canceled because the airport has the appropriate radar equipment that could help the pilot to take off and land with poor visibility.
How to get from the airport to Trujillo
Capitán FAP International Airport Carlos Martínez de Pinillos is located on the outskirts of Trujillo. There are several transportation options: buses, taxis and shuttles connect all parts of the city with the airport. Therefore, you should not have problems approaching your hotel with little effort. If you are going by taxi, be sure to bring an official vehicle (recognizable by the arms of the city of Trujillo) of New Taxi (blue vehicles) or Trujillo Service and Teletaxi (both yellow). The price is negotiated. Another option is to rent a car directly at the airport.
