Right now on, you can get a roundtrip from LAX to Lima for $238. This appears to be good from September through November. Peru is one of my favorite countries in the world. Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Amazon Rainforest, world’s deepest canyon, incredible history, gastronomy, great beaches, and on and on and on.

If you want to book, book now. This fare will disappear any moment. I just booked a two week trip for $238!

See the flyertalk thread here. I can’t confirm the details in it because it’s 5 AM where I am, but the thread reports this will earn 50% of the flown miles on United. It also claims you can stop over in El Salvador (great country) for $35 extra, but I failed to make that work.

Jump on this now. Worry about positioning flights later. That thread also links to some language that claims that you can cancel the itinerary for up to 24 hours. Again YMMV.

Huge hat tip to @bitachu for letting me get back to South America after a two year absence on the cheap. That’s longer than I ever thought I’d be away, and I’m glad I’ll soon be back.
