I'm living in Ollantaytambo, Peru at the moment and would like to make the Cusco, Peru to Rio de Janiero trip by bus. I hear the best route is Cusco > Santa Cruz > Corumba > Rio. Does anybody have a rough idea of how much it costs for bus/train fair on that route? Anybody out there done it? I've been searching around, but get pretty confused on some of the South American bus websites. THANK YOU!!!!
I don't know if these are of any help:
Wrong way but it may help
It's a LONG way by bus. The best way is a short flight.
Thank you very much for the quick response! Great info! The quick flight is about $950!!!! Far too much! I think I'll be trying the train/bus route through La Paz, Santa Cruz, and then into Brazil to Rio. I still can't find prices but I can't imagine it being more than a few hundred.
I am hoping to make the same trip and wandering whether it might be cheaper to take the bus from sao paulo all the way to cuzco/lima or is a flight not that much more expensive?
I would really appreciate you advice.
