  • Getting to Huaraz from Pucallpa

    by trav3love Written Jan 8, 2010

    Dec 2009
    In Pucallpa we got bus in Bella Durmiente De Tingo Maria. It goes directly to Lima but for about 45 Soles we get out in Huanuco. The bus leaves at 4pm and we got to Huanuco at 2:30. At 3am we had a bus to La Union for 15 Soles (bus company - Tours Sonia, Jr.Tarapaca no.439). It took 5h and it was cold. at 9am we had minivan to Chiquian (1h ride for 3 Soles) and then at 1pm a bus from El Rapido company to Huaraz (4h ride for 18 Soles).
    Pretty good and fast connection. Better than getting to Lima first, waiting for bus and then go 7h to Huaraz.

    Note: To and from Lima ...Most well known buses leave at night (9pm,10pm,11pm ) a few low cost busses leave during the day 8am but they frequently stop in every town and in the road to pick up passangers so at the end the 7 hour trip becames 12 hours. If you have time to spare, it could be a great way to see the mountain ranges and the costal lines.

    there are a manifold of buses to go from Lima to Huaraz and most take between 7 to 8 hours to arrive. Different prices and various types of services. Most of the busses depart at night and arrive very early in the morning

    so if you leave at 10pm you are arriving at 6 or 7 am

    One of the Bus service is transportes Cavassa (I do not recommend you to take this bus unless you do not carry luggages or other valuable belongins) its fees range from s/35 soles (about 10 usd ) to s/80 soles (35 usd) depending on the dates of travel and the type of bus. (bus cama, superior etc)

    in Lima the stop is located in Av. Paseo de la Republica 646- Lima

    New Note: there are other good reliable transport such as Cruz del Sur and Mobil tours

    Bus trip from Chimbote to Huaraz

    by MovingMere Updated Jan 20, 2007

    We came to this city from the beautiful coastal city of Chimbote, and the ride was amazing (actually the reason for traveling to Huaraz via Chimbote) Immediately after leaving Chimbote, you pass through mountains and soon meet up with the river and the mountains grow steadily higher. The ride starts out beautiful, the views just keep getting better. Be sure to bring an extra battery for your camera, because you will probably have it on most of the ride even though the extraordinary views could never be adequately captured on film.

    The bus ride from Chimbote was 9.5 hours, not the 7-8 that was quoted at the bus station, so don’t count on their estimates to get you places on time. Part of the problem was the frequent stopping, so maybe it you hit it at a good time, you can get through a little quicker. Also, we met a truck coming from the other way in a one-lane tunnel on the side of the mountain, so it took a bit of maneuvering for the other guy to back up and not fall off the mountain... I’m sure that set us back a few minutes. Also, as with any long bus ride, there is a stop for lunch and the length is of course determined by how long it takes the driver to finish eating. :)

    Don't drink too much this day, as the “improved road” is bumpy and your bus probaby won't have a bathroom.

    Cheapest taxis in the world

    by Prinsalsita Written Dec 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Any taxi in Huaraz will only cost you s/. 2.00 soles . Yes 2 soles or at the most 2.50 soles (if the new raise went into effect)

    Cualquier taxi dentro de Huaraz , donde vayas te costara solo 2 soles o a lo maximo 2.50 soles (si subieron las tarifas)

    You can also take what the locals call "el colectivo" which is a taxi with 4 or 5 people and you pay 50 centimos or 1/2 of a sol

    Colectivos take you from one side of town to the other.

    they are very convenient and reliable.

    anywhere you want to go and cheap

    anywhere, anytime, cheap

    We used Movil Tours to get to Huaraz from Lima. The regular bus was 20 soles (around $7). On the way back to Lima, we took the overnight deluxe bus for 40 soles but with a large reclining seat, you really could sleep plus you got a small meal and a bottle of mineral water included. The trip is around 7 to 8 hours. To get around the surrounding area of Huaraz the pictured "collectivos" are a great value. For little more than a couple dollars you can travel to towns sometimes a couple hours away. Great for reaching trail heads of treks inexpensively.

    Getting there and around by bus

    I took a bus from Casma to Huaraz. It took me from the coast up to the Cordillera Negra. Let me tell you this ride is unforgettable with all the views you get. You start with the coastal desert landscape. Then you go inland following a river and its fertile fields as you go up the Cordlillera Negra. Once you cross the Cordillera Negra, you go downhill towards Huaraz. It is on this last few hours where you get excellent views of the mighty Cordillera Blanca and many of its snowy peaks. The bus ride ended on the lovely town of Huaraz, which has great views of the Cordilleras.

    After almost two weeks in the Huaraz area, I took a night bus to Lima. Sorry folks, didn't get to see the scenery, but I did get a nice 7 hour sleep :).

    For the off-the-beaten attractions, there are countless of vans making the rounds on the Cordillera Blanca. Ask a local to tell you where they stop.

    Prices for transport were under $1 USD per hour traveled in 2001 all over Peru. More in fancy buses.
