Hi,

How have you all been? It's been a while. So I was looking for some help and remembered this forum.

Anyone know anything about what it's like to drive from Lima, Peru to São Paulo, Brasil? I would like to take my own vehicle. Also would like to know if there is a bus route between the two.

Would Really (really!) appreciate any help.

Thanks a million

By bus:

I would not drive there. What happens if you break down in the middle of nowhere? Or if you are held up? Or....?

A flight is lots better, but expensive. You can always hire a car as needed.

Thanks Cyberia,

I will check out that link. The issue is.. .I am driving either way. Just trying to figure out if I HAVE TO go all the way to down to Santiago then over to Buenos Aires.. or If I can just cut straight over.

Yes dangerous, but God is good.

thanks.
