RE: go here if you want to get shot dead« on: August 01 2007 19:08:00 »
shit, my flight lands around midnight...was the only one I could get. i have a cab ride hooked up from Lima airport to punta hermose, have the drivers picture, name, etc. ...hooked it up via the surf camp I'm staying at. Are you saying that robbers pull over the cab and rob both people?!
Obviously, what I'm doing is a bit risky. Any suggestions to lessen the risk?

Yes it is risky to take cabs such a long distance at night time. If you can change your flight so you get there in the morning it would be perfect. The airport is aproximately 70 km away. Punta Hermosa is on Km 44 aprox. Half of the ride will be thru the city close to the airport which are poor towns, then you will hit San Isidro, San Borja, and Monterrico and get on the Pan South To Punta Hermosa and that is all night x-way driving and again you will go thru a acouple poor towns its not safe. The cab shouldnt charge more than fifty bucks. They will try to charge more, you gotta try to get them out of the airport first and then re-bargain cause what ever you rebargain it will clean cash for them so they opt for a better bargain. Please polish on your SPANISH its key for bargains.

HEY NYC SURFER, IT DOESNT MATTER WHO GOT YOU A TAXI, THEIR ARE PROFFESIONAL KIDNAPPERS AND THIEFS OUT SIDE THE AIRPORT AND THEY KNOW WHEN THERE IS A OPPERTUNITY. TRUST ME WAIT IN THE AIRPORT AND LEAVE IN THE MORNING.A LOCAL FRIEND WAS KIDNAPPED AND HELD FOR 20 DAYS IN A HOLE,SO JUST CAUSE IT DOESNT MAKE WORLD NEWS IT DOESNT MEEN IT DOESNT HAPPEN.

Hey Guys! How are you doing? I think it is much better to go with some agencies like eco-innovationtours.com who does everything for you and you won’t be worry about all those problems. I wish my country like all the countries in this planet would get better and be safer but if they do not, we have the choice to take the safe way so then you don’t have any regrets.

marty I'm sorry as a peruvian that u had that experience but u can't expect to walk around south america and not have to watch ur back, I'm born n raised there and I still live with eyes in the back of the head , its sad that a small group of people make my country look bad but is really not , u will find the most humble people in the villages up north, and besides chances are u'll get shot in the states faster than in peru, people dont wanna hurt u , they just wanna feed their kids, best tip keep and eye at all times and leave the fancy clothes n camaras at home people , its a surf trip! enjoy
