Travel and Arrival 
Airports
You will need to fly into and out of Lima, Peru (LIM). Most flights arrive in the evening or very early morning. If you are interested, you may book extra hotel nights at the Belmond Miraflores Park Hotel through the hotel’s website. If you book an Ocean View Club Junior Suite, you will not have to change rooms when our program begins.
Flight Arrival and Departure Times
Flights into Lima can arrive any time on September 15 (hotel check-in begins at 3 pm) or in the morning on September 16.

Please note that if your flight departs late on the evening of September 24, you will need to check out of your hotel room by 12 pm that day. In this case, you may want to consider booking an additional night directly with the hotel so you can keep your room up until your departure to the airport.
The Wyndham Costa del Sol Hotel is at the airport and directly across the street from the international terminal. The hotel staff can provide directions on how to walk across the sky bridge that links the hotel to the international terminal.
