Northern Highlands in detail
There are four main airports in the region. The largest is in Cajamarca followed by Tarapoto, Jaén and Chachapoyas (the latter has limited flights). All international connections are through Lima.
Buses connect Lima with Cajamarca (S100 to S120, 16 hours) via Trujillo, and Chiclayo with Chachapoyas (S55 to S75, nine hours) via Pedro Ruíz.
It's also possible to enter the region from Ecuador in the north via San Ignacio and Jaén.
Movil Tours has the most comprehensive high-end bus service in these parts.
