From the airport: we recommend taking a taxi for 50 soles (US$20). Could take from 30 to 50 minutes depending of traffic. Book it with us and the taxi driver will wait for you outside the luggage pick up zone carrying a board with your name. If you are travelling light, want to save some money, and don’t mind a little bit of adventure, you can take a “kombi” (small bus) right outside the airport, just look for the one that shows an “S” sign on the windshield and tell the collector you are going to get off at the 1st Block of Benavides Avenue. If you follow this instructions you will be in Porta Street (our street), walk towards the sea (right side in regard to the “kombi”) and 2 blocks ahead you will find us.
From the bus station: we recommend taking a taxi for 13 soles (US$ 5). It is possible to arrive taking the “Metropolitano” bus in the crossing of Javier Prado Avenue and Via Expresa, toward Miraflores. Get off at “Av. 28 de Julio”-stop and take your right hand as you exit the station, walk ahead 8 blocks until you get Porta Street, turn left and look for the KACLLA at the left side of the street.
Good luck!!!

Located half way between the Pacific Ocean and 'Parque Kennedy', the central park of Miraflores, a few blocks away from both. Ideal for keeping contact with nature, taking surf lessons and flying in a paraglider over the sea with one of our affiliated schools, or just taking a walk along the seafront. We are in the heart of all that Miraflores has to offer such as restaurants, pubs, shopping centers and handicrafts stores.
