Cusco Airport Public Bus Recommendations

IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on the Cusco Airport public bus.

Much cheaper than a taxi, but not too good if you have a lot of luggage.

Cusco Airport Public Bus Fares & Payment

Cusco Airport Public Bus Details

There is no Cusco Airport bus service to the terminal. 


Although buses do not enter Cusco Airport grounds, you can catch one outside the main gate to town.



If you are staying in Cuzco for a long time, the "Combis" are a cheap and reliable transportation option. These Volkswagen vans and small buses - with names like Imperial, Batman, or Zorro - run until 22:00. Drivers call out the stops, and if you want to get off, yell "Baja!" (it means "I want to get off!"). Combis get quite full, so if you like your personal space, this may not be the best option for you. Carry your backpack in front of you.

Cusco Airport Private Bus Details

Private buses are plentiful, and depart from Terminal Terrestre (Cusco Bus Terminal) to numerous Peruvian and Bolivian cities.


Typical fares and trip durations:

  • Arequipa - 10 hours (about PEN 20)
  • Copacabana - 9-12 hours (about PEN 60)
  • La Paz - 12-15 hours (about PEN 90)
  • Lima - about 24 hours
  • Nazca - 14-16 hours
  • Puno - 6-8 hours (about PEN 25) 


Before making a decision to take a bus between cities, be aware that:

  • Bus trips are quite long and slow, although the views can be spectacular
  • The main roads are mostly good, but not all, and some can be very poor, making trips take longer than expected
  • Buses in Peru are not operated to first world standards, especially the cheaper ones: drivers work long hours, maintenance is often poor and there are frequent accidents (fatalities are not uncommon)
  • Before you buy tickets, make sure your bus has a bathroom or will stop for bathroom breaks every few hours before you buy (there are Puno-Cusco buses that have/do neither, making a VERY uncomfortable 6–8 hours)
  • If the above makes you nervous, stick with the more upmarket companies - or take a plane


Expreso Los Chankas is one of the few companies that offer direct service between Ayacucho and Cusco. Expect to pay about  PEN 55 for a 22 hour ride on a semi-cama bus (well equipped, with comfortable reclining seats).
