Need Rec for Lima, Peru near airport if possible

This coming Sunday I have a 7 hour layover in Lima en route to Argentina. Is there anything worth checking out that is near the airport? Or should I take a taxi into the city. Also what are taxis like in Lima? Any info would be great because I didn't realize how long my layover was till today and have no information on Lima.

  1. there's not much near the airport, not a good area to hang-out... best option is to head into the city. And the taxis can be expensive going into the city tho... make sure you find a legit taxi, and haggle over the price BEFORE you get in! (if you're gringo, then you can get taken advantage of). Do you speak Spanish? It would be a great benefit to you if you do. Lots of great recommendations on this board.... most are in Miraflores and San Isidro.
