Cell phone rental - Current as of March 2011

In the airport in Lima, not far from the left side of Duncan Donuts and not far from the right side of the passenger-only-checkpoint is a place to rent a cell phone. It's called "Perú Rent A Cell" or "Free Cell". 10$ for a month gets you outgoing calls for 50 cents a minute in country and 1.50$ international. Incoming calls are free.

Try it out before traveling and make sure you can use the numbers you have. If someone calls you, you can't just return that call to reach somebody. You have to use a code to call out and this is REALLY GOOD TO PREPARE FOR by programming in the numbers of your companions and TESTING them. I did not know this and could not call anybody except my family in the US whose numbers I had saved my first day in Lima.

NOTE #2:
It has a handy flashlight.


I'll be returning in October, 2011. If anyone has any questions, I'll be happy to look for answers while there. Just don't expect me to do your homework for you.
There was a corner booth in baggage claim this time as others have stated. I just flew in to Lima last night and next to the booth were some vending machines.
Baggage claim was a madhouse. There were four jets landing at once and lots of pushing and shoving. If I had known that, I would have stopped to have some coffee and let the crowd die down. I think it took over a full hour to go through just that area.
A good thing though, there were trolleys for free. That was very, very nice to have available.
The booth upstairs next to Dunkin Donuts was still there, too. (We picked up doughnuts for the family to enjoy. It was a nice treat for them,)
