We are (family of 4 with 2 kids) planning to go from Rio to Bolivia in the beginning of July

How do you think is the best way to choose? (train, bus) (we don't want to fly)
How long? (km & time)
How much it may cost?

Do you know where can I get more info?

Thanks a lot!

There are few passenger trains in Brazil, so if you don't want to fly, bus is your choice. However, don't underestimate the vast distances. I would think that being on a bus for all that time would end up being boring, rather than interesting, for kids, even though the buses are fairly comfortable.

The ANTT site is the best for bus info. Here is a page with a link and instructions for use:
