This thread is marked as being about Cusco

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.

Hi guys,

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.

Thank you.
