The airport is 4km outside town off the road to Otuzco. Taxis charge S10 into downtown. The combination of difficult terrain and frequent heavy rains mean cancellations and delays are fairly common here. Reconfirm your flight before heading out to the airport. It would be unwise to book tight connections when leaving from Cajamarca.
