The Most Convenient Cusco Airport Transfer
Once the proud capital of the Inca Empire, Cusco is now a historical city located in the Peruvian Andes. The city is filled with Spanish colonial architecture and ancient ruins, such as the Incan Temple of the Sun, Plaza de Armas and the stunning baroque Santo Domingo Convent. To transport from the airport to the city and get to delve into the city’s unique history, we suggest taking a quick and easy Cusco airport taxi.

After a warm greeting, your friendly driver will help you carry any heavy luggage to your pre-selected vehicle. If the time of your flight suddenly changes, there’s no need to panic. All of our Welcome Pickups drivers receive live updates on any changes to your flight’s schedule, so they will always be there the moment you land.

Directions for your Cusco Airport Shuttle
Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ), more simply known as Cusco Airport, is located in southeastern Peru. Despite its small size and location next to the city centre, Cusco airport sees over 3.2 million passengers through its doors each year. The airport is located around 6 km from the city centre, so taking a Cusco airport shuttle shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes to get there.
After exiting the airport compound, your driver will begin your quick Cusco airport transfer to the city. First, they will take a left onto Estacionamiento Aeropuerto Cusco, then a right onto Avenue Velasco Astete. They will follow Avenue Velasco Astete for around 1.4 km, before taking a left onto Avenue Jorge Chavez. After around 1.3 km, your driver will take a right onto Hospedaje Tropical, before taking a sharp left onto Avenue 28 de Julio. You will then reach a roundabout, where your driver will take the 5th exit, leading you into the heart of the city centre.
Benefits of Booking your Cusco Airport Transfer with Welcome
Although local Cusco airport taxis are available 24/7, you can sometimes be met with language barriers and price fluctuations between the different drivers and companies available.

By booking with us, you can enjoy guaranteed on-time pickups, fixed competitive rates, 24/7 customer service and fluent English-speaking local drivers.
Cost of a Cusco Airport Taxi to the City
The local Cusco airport taxi drivers don’t use taximeters to calculate their fares. Instead, your driver will decide on the cost of your journey once you tell them your destination. The average cost for a Cusco airport shuttle ride into the city centre of Cusco is around €3 (PEN 12), however, it’s very common for drivers to start at a higher price and for you to haggle with them. There’s also a fee of €0.50 (PEN 2) for taxi drivers to use the airport taxi rank, so often, this is added to the passenger’s final fare.
