Bus from Arequipa to Copacabana via Puno

by aron285


does anybody know whether or not it is possible to travel in one day from Arequipa to Copacabana (via Puno)? We don't want to take a nightbus because they are not save.

thanks for your help!

it may be possible but it'd be long.
why do you think nightbuses are not safe?

Re: Bus from Arequipa to Copacabana via Puno

by aron285

well in the lonely planet there is a warning for hijacks if you travel by night bus, so we are not taking that risk. We don't know Peru at all, so we don't know what to expect.

Do you have any idea about the bus schedule from Puno to Copacabana? I can't find it anywhere

someone will post soon with that schedule, i'm sure.

Copacabana on Titicaca at the Brazilian side???? Bolivian side you mean probably. Brazil doesn't have a border with Titicaca.

Yes, Copacabana in Bolivia.

Cruz del Sur has a day bus AQP-Puno, you could also consider flying AQP-Juliaca (which is the airport for Puno). Check LAN Peru.

yes, bolivian side.
i got distracted by the question

I'm in Puno right now. You won't be able to make it from Arequipa to Copacabana in one day, unless you take the night bus. This is because the Bolivian border checkpoint closes in the evening, there's no 24 hours border crossing. There is a wide variety of transportation from Puno to Copacabana, but the easiest and safest is the direct bus, departs Puno at 7:30 AM and hits Copacabana about 12:30 Bolivian time, the price is 20 soles (about 7 US dollars). There are two companies doing this trip, one is Tur Peru, the other I think is Panamericana (I may be wrong with the 2nd companys name). As for night busses, I think that the robberies of night busses between Arequipa and Puno (and also Cuzco Puno) are a thing of the past, but if you want to play it safe, then take the day bus and spend a night in Puno.

Travel Tips for Puno

Tourist Information Office

by risse73

It may be best to stop at the local tourist information office located in bustling Lima Street (Pasaje Lima 549) at Puno's city center. They offer tourist-related services and practical information. Also, they give out a map.

One of the other tourists led me to this office and told me that they set up her tour to Arequipa from Puno for such a great deal! I didn't have a chance to seek tour assistance from this office, but next time I'm in the area, I'll definitely do so. Check them out when you're in town! Meeting wonderful visitors from all over the world!

Acora Market

by JessieLang

Acora has a big Sunday market, and the local people may travel 3-4 hours to reach it. The Uros people are here selling fish, and there are trucks from the Amazon loaded with fruit.
This isn't a souvenir market--it is for people in the region to buy or barter for the things they use. It is large and colorful, and gives a picture of daily life.

Acora is about 20 mi. (35 km) from Puno, on the other side of Chucuito.

Bus from Copacabana or Cuzco

by SirRichard

The cheapest way to arrive to Puno is by bus. I arrived here from Copacabana (3h, 20 bolivians), Bolivia. The bus arrives to "Terminal Terrestre" and you can take from there a taxi to the centre (3 s, 1 USD), as is a bit far away...

Parque Pino

by SirRichard

This is the second main square after the Plaza de Armas. There is not really any highlight in the square but is often busy, lively and full of people wandering around.
Is located between the Central Market and the Plaza de Armas.

Plaza de Armas

by ValbyDK

We started our sightseeing in the city of Puno at the main square, ‘Plaza de Armas’. It is a nice square, but not as impressive as the main squares in Lima or Cusco.

Beautiful trees, bushes, and flowers – and in the centre stands a monument of an unknown war hero. ‘Plaza de Armas’ is surrounded by hotels, restaurants, the town library, an art gallery – and the 18th century stone cathedral.

The pedestrian main street, ‘Jiron Lima’, begins at the square and continues forward until the ‘Arco Duestua’ monument. A street filled with tour operators, street vendors, shops, restaurants, bars, and a few hotels and guest houses.
