December air fare from LAX to Lima
Does $2500 r/t for two adults from Los Angeles to Lima in December seem about right? I'm wondering if I should book now or wait to see if the rates drop.

I am currently planning a 2 week trip to Peru so I'm sure there will be more questions to come.

That sounds a little expensive.

From Washington DC to Lima, a roundtrip flight is about $600-$700. I'm planning to travel next June 2010, and I already bought my tickets last October to get the best price. My roundtrip flight cost $370 (with one stop in Panama City).

That's what I was thinking but I can't seem to find anything cheaper. I guess the fares doubled due to the holidays (we're traveling from 12/14-12/28). Thanks for the input!

I'm sure it is to do with the holiday period.

You might play around with the dates a bit.

If all is the same I would go with LAN, it's nonstop and you can possibly save on the internal airfares using their South America airpass.

Another thing I would look into, if you can get the fare all the way to Cusco (LAX to CUZ) you will save several hundred by not having to buy the internal airfares.
