We have been seeing incredible fares to South America lately, like the Washington DC to Lima fare a few weeks back. For less than the price of a cross-country fare, you can fly to another continent for just $239 roundtrip including taxes this fall.

Fare Details

This fare from Los Angeles International Airport to Lima, Peru easily saves $500 on the regular cost of this route. The deal is available for daily departures September-November, including availability over Thanksgiving. All of the flights have a short stop in El Salvador, making the travel time only 2 hours longer than nonstop flight. This isn’t so bad considering the best nonstop fare is about $800!

This deal will not last, it’s likely a pricing mistake by the airline. Our fare experts predict it might be gone in as little as a few hours, so book ASAP.

Booking on Fly.com is really simple, but here are some screenshots so you know what to look for:

Visiting Peru

We posted a deal a few weeks back to Peru, so I will include the relevant information below about the major attractions in the region:

“Peru is home to ancient ruins, lush rainforest and tons of historical sites. Here are just two of the top spots:

  • Machu Picchu - Referred to as “The Lost City of the Incas,” Machu Picchu is believed to have been constructed in the 15th-century as a palace for an Incan emperor. It is located on the side of a mountain and is probably the most well-known site in Peru. UNESCO has some great photos and a detailed description of Machu Picchu.
  • Nazca Lines – A collection of about 300 drawings in the desert floor that can best be seen from above, the Nazca Lines were said to be made in the 1st century and have been preserved due to the dry climate in the area. The Peru Cultural Society has some fantastic images and more information on the Nazca Lines, including directions from Lima.”

     I booked this flight for 6 of us…. I paid $100 more for all of us to go than I was going to pay for just 1 ticket. Best deal ever. Thanks so much for sharing!

       Our pleasure Jeanette. Many dates have now sold out, but you did the smart thing by booking as soon as possible. Have a fantastic trip! Post pictures to our facebook page when you return.

        I was thrilled when I heard about this deal since my wife and I had been planning a trip to Peru already.  I bought two tickets yesterday for a total of $499 and recieved a confirmation number and email from CheapOAir (which was listed on Fly.com).  All day long I have been feeling like the luckiest man alive but right before bed I recieved an email from the ticket agency saying that they regret to announce that they are ” not able to issue the itinerary booked because of the airlines involved”.  What does this mean for me and can I force the issue in anyway.  All they are suggesting is that I supply some alternative dates and that they will work on finding similarly priced tickets.

    I wish I had seen this deal when it was posted! Jeanette, if you don’t mind sharing, what range of days did you book?

    As recently as two hours ago, I made a mad dash to grab a fare and hammered out some dates with a good friend, and the dates we chose were from Wednesday – Thursday (8 days). Alas, we were too late because the prices were changed!

    Still, at least I found fly.com, this blog is a great resource and I was genuinely excited to think I was going to Peru for pennies!!
