== Hitchhiking out ==
=== North towards [[Trujillo]], [[Ecuador]] (1N) ===
The best place to hitch a ride north is the Ancon Tollbooth.
Take any bus going to [[Huaral]] and ask to get of off at the ''peaje Ancon''. Alternatively, there are micros that go to Ancon, but they will drop you off at a truck weigh station, a few kilometers before the tollbooth. You can try hitching from there or ask any truck to take you to the tollbooth.
All trucks and buses heading north use this tollbooth to leave Lima.
Another option is the roundabout within the Ancón.
We hitchhike twice from there and never stood longer than 5 minutes. Traffic is slow here and there is plenty of space to stop. However, not all trafficgoes along this route as there is a junction between the above mentioned weigh station and Ancón.Most of the cars will bypass the city which results in only being able to hitch lifts with trucks from this spot. To get to Ancón you should go to the Panamericna in the Rimac District of Lima. A ride costed 4 S./ in 2014. (edited by flohfish)
=== East towards [[Huancayo]] ===
=== South towards [[Ica]], [[Nazca]], [[Cusco]], [[Chile]] (Panamericana, 1S) ===
A good spot to start hitchhiking the
Panameicana in direction South is the toll station in Lima's Villa El Salvado District. To get there, go to any bus stop on the Sothern Panamericana with in Lima (e.g. the crossing with Primavera or Avenida Alfonso Benavides) and take a combi going direction Lurín/Pachacamac. (edited by flohfish)
