Lima to Caracas

1. How much does it cost (moreless) by a plane?

2. How much days does it take by bus? Is there overland route directly to Venezuela (that skips Colombia).

Hi, well, skipping Colombia is gonna be really hard.

I know you can go Lima-Quito, and Quito through Colombia, but...

Remember Venezuela borders with Colombia and Brazil, and the brazilian area is The Amazonia, so... take a Flight if your destination is Caracas ;)

Best Regards,

If you want to experience the Amazon you can go on a river boat from the Peruvian rain forest into Brasil and then I believe there are roads or river connections into Venezuela. That way you wouldn't have to go through Colombia if you don't want to. I don't remember exactly where or what right now because I didn't go myself but I know it's possible.

The environmentally friendly traveller always try not to go on intra-continental flights... So if you have time skip it, and see something of the continent instead of the just the airports!

If you have the time I wouldn't skip Colombia. It is an awesome country and has a lot to offer as well as really nice people. I traveled that whole country by bus a few months ago and had no problems. As for Venezuela I was only in Caracas which I thought to be a dump and heard stories from lots of travelers who had problems over there.
