Hi there,

We are heading down to south america and want to know whether there are any bus companies that have websites. We need the cheapest way possible!

We are in Cenral Americ at the moment and wanted to know the cities that would have the cheapest flights to fly from central america into south america. Thanks!

Tara and Katie

I don't even think the local Oslo bus organization has it's own website, let alone in South America. Plus, I always find public transport websites to be terrible and hard to use. I reckon it's the kind of the information you'd be able to get pretty easily once you arrive in the country itself. When I was in Costa Rica a few years ago the bus network was amazingly good and very cheap. Easy to arrange too.

Stick to the big cities in Central america to get the best rates. San Jose would be good, but it depends on where you are somewhat as well I guess?

Some bus companies have websites, though often they are only in Spanish. Turbus has a website, I know.

Tickets are pretty easy to purchase at the stations.

These guys are out of Argentina. Generally in SA, most people just book from the station or an agency though. It's easy enough and doesn't require much advance notice. You can generally choose between super cheap and a little more expensive for a "cama" (bed) seat.
