Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Buying bus tickets in Lima

Hi everyone,

In crazy Lima at the moment, and trying to plan the next leg of the trip. Not having a word of Spanish, I'm a bit worried about buying a ticket at the Cruz del Sur offices. Has anyone done this, and if so, is it pretty straightforward?

Thanks,

Ev! ;)

You are a 'travel guru' visiting Peru and don't speak a word of Spanish? ¡Que lastima!
Here is the website of Cruz del Sur buses..they are luxury coaches..the site is in español - por supuesto. http://www.cruzdelsur.com.pe/inicio.php

As well, Oh Peru! .com lists every transportation company in the country alphabetically..again en español http://www.ohperu.com/empresas/transporte.htm

Best to get a good phrase book and practice or find a bi lingual friend there.

Buen Viaje.
