    Peru is in South America, on the Pacific and very far from Los Angeles. You cannot drive all the way to Peru because the Panamericana Highway is not complete between Panama and Colombia. There is a large jungle region called the Darien Gap on the border between these two countries and no road through it. To bring a vehicle to Peru you could drive most of the way from the US through Mexico and Central America to Panama, then ship the vehicle from Colon, Panama to either Colombia or Ecuador. It would be very expensive, dangerous, and time consuming to do this.

    If you wish to fly to Peru from California, there are flights from LAX or California to Lima, Peru on LAN airlines. There is a larger selection of flights and airlines from Miami and these flights are usually less expensive.
