...leaving on September 27th.
So, you're not able to go into Peru without a ticket showing you're leaving the country. Since I'm not leaving until July of next year and tickets aren't available to purchase till then. Rather than going through the hassle of buying a return ticket and hoping I can change the date without too many fees or confusions, I opted for the option instead to buy a ticket to Quito, Ecuador. i have the flexibility of buying return tickets whenever and not have to think about it until then.
So I'm flying Taca airlines and it was $600.
