  1. Hello Elías.

    Hope you are doing well.

    I took the bus from La Paz to Cuzco and back again in October last year.

    It is a 17 hours trip and the stop between Bolivia and Peru is a bit chaotic pout

    I took a day bus going to Cuzco and a night bus coming back to La Paz.


    Most of the buses to La Paz from Cusco have a Change in Puno and they cost around 25 $US,  the buses are pretty comfortable and run at least once a day.

    La Paz to Copacabana by bus 4 hours US$ 4,00
    Copacabana to Puno by bus 5 hours US$ 5,00
    Puno to Cusco by bus 8 hours US$ 15,00

    There is also a direct bus through Desaguadero it takes around 16 hours, going through Desaguadero is a couple of hours shorter and the border crossing is quicker. (But you will not get to see Titicaca lake)

    I highly recommend you to take a bus to Copacabana stay a night in Titicaca Lake (Isla del Sol) then get a bus to Puno and cross over to Bolivia from there, where you will have buses/Minivans to La Paz every hour.

    There are also another two great stops: The floating islands and Two earth islands over two days by boat . Excellent trip!

    I also sugget to take a tourist bus, they are more expensive than regular buses but safer and comfortable.



    For a cheap flight from Cusco to La Paz check out Taca or Aerosur.


    If you are short in time? I recommend to save it and fly there, however if you have enough time and want to save some money take a tourist bus.


    Don’t forget to have with you your Yellow Fever certificate when you cross the border, sometimes they may ask for it!


    Have a great trip!
