Hi all,

I'd like to know what are the options for going to Bogota, from Quito,Ecuador by land.
How much does the bus ticket cost ? How long does it take ?
Is it a safe trip ?

Thanks in advance,

I know that when i wen to Otavalo i got on a bus that went to the Columiba Ecuador border. It cost like 3 dollars, o i imagine like 6 dollars to Columbia and i am sure you can get a bus the other side of the border after signing out etc..

Not sure about saftey mind.

I paid about 55,000.00 pesos to go from Bucaramanga to Bogota, which is about 25 US dollars. be careful, they like to charge tourists more, and their prices are not set. I found buses in Colombia to be comfortable. My only complaints were the windy mountain passes and they blasted the AC way too cold. Bring a blanket for the bus ride!
