I would like to travel overnight from Arequipa to Puni in late April. Does anyone know if there are night buses that do this? Can you reccomend a company? Everything I've read from my guide books says that this service is not available on most touristy type buses. Are there local buses I can take? Any idea of the schedule? Thanks!
I think we took a day bus, but I can't remember why! I seem to remember the bus company was Flores or Floria and they were fine.
Puno is a bit of a dump, though, and the reed islands very, very touristy/fake we wished we had planned ahead and skipped straight through to Copacabana in Bolivia - the last bus to Copacabana goes at 2:30pm.
yes, there are several busses / companies going several times a day between these 2 places
We also took this route.
We used Flores as the bus company.
I agree with pervious comments that the floating islands are very turistic and commercialized experience, yet we enjoyed it. After all, we are tourists...
There are enough night buses, I didn´t take one from Puno to Arequipa but I did from Cusco to Puno and from Cusco to Arequipa! I remember that I used Tour Peru, which was a really good one!
