UPDATE: LAP S.R.L. has temporarily closed the Left Luggage facility for relocation. We will be updating this post as soon as it is reopened.
Lima’s Jorge Chavez Airport has been recognized as one of the best in Latin America year in and year out. But let’s say you have a long, long layover in Lima and don’t want to sit around. You want to get out to see the city, but don’t know what to do with your suitcases.
Well, there is a solution: the “left luggage” (luggage storage) in the domestic arrivals area of Jorge Chavez International Airport.
It is open 24 hours and costs S/.4 (Peruvian Soles) per hour per piece. That’s around US$1.50 at the current exchange rate.
You can also leave your luggage for longer periods at a cost of S/.24 per day per piece of luggage. Rates for over-sized bags are “in accordance with size and weight.”
They only accept cash, though, dollars or soles, no credit cards.
You can also store smaller items in lockers. A locker costs S/.8 per hour or S/.38 per day. They also offer group discounts — 10% off for 10 people; 20% off for 20 people and 30% off for 30 people or more.
You pay when claiming your bags.
You’ll need to show official ID to leave your belongings. Their terms state that “No valuables, food, weapons or drugs accepted.”
Baggage must be claimed within a maximum period of one month, unless specific arrangements have been made or in the case of “specific situations.”
