Bus from Tacna to Arequipa lunatic driver taking on the twisties through the Andes. Worth the travel just to spend an extra day here, so much to see and do in Arequipa. South America just keeps ...

Once we re-boarded around 9pm that night it was a straight haul to Santiago with no stops except to pick up or drop of passengers and switch drivers, arriving the following afternoon at 1:30pm. Sleep didn’t come easy and was short lived but better than some of my past experiences of night bus travel. The nice thing about coming into a large city is having the ability ...
