INFO HOW TO GET THERE?

You need to book your flight to Lima airport in Peru on:

  • December 3 if you choose the classic offer.
  • December 2nd if you take an extra night before.

Once there, you just need to take a taxi to the hotel located about 45 minutes from the airport in the Miraflores district, where HMDS staff will welcome you (the fare will be less than 10€, about 35 Peruvian Soles).

WHICH FLIGHTS TO CHOOSE?

If you arrive on Friday 2 December, you can arrive whenever you like.

If you arrive on Saturday 3rd December, it is better to arrive early enough in the day to have time for the technical controls and to get some rest.

We recommend that participants take flight tickets with cancellation and modification insurance, taking into account restrictions that may be applied by countries.
