Bus to Arequipa


The bus left Nasca two minutes early. I guess everyone had checked in so off we went.

The route to Arequipa is along the Pan American Highway. While in the Lima area this is a four lane highway, by Paracas it’s down to two lanes. After Nasca, as we entered the mountains, those two lanes become very windy with many hairpin turns. With large trucks enroute, the pace slows to a crawl. Hense a 9 hour travel time.

On this leg of the trip we were seated on the second level of the bus, above the driver’s seat in the first row, with the “big screen” presenting the road ahead.
