Stop By Stop Information

The Get To Cusco Quick pass is broken down to 3 Hopstages:

Below you’ll see each of those hopstages individually, where you’ll know what to do, recommended number of nights and more!

If you want to see our recommended itinerary, click here.

Hopstage 1 : Lima to Paracas

Bus Details

Pick up at your hotel or hostel in Lima (if staying in an Airbnb send us an email).

Choose between 2 bus options from Lima:

  • 7am Cultural Route:
    Allows you to stop at places like Mirasur to witness a Peruvian horse show (free)
  • 6am Express Route:
    Direct 3.5 hour bus to Paracas (ideal for those short on time and for some would rather not spend 1 night in Paracas)

Top Things to do in Paracas

  • Rent normal bikes or quad bikes and drive around the desert
  • Paraglide over Peru’s largest protected natural habitat
  • Practice kite surfing on the waves that crash against the desert
  • Chill out by the pool or at the beach that stays sunny all year round
  • Paracas National Reserve where the desert meets the sea. Check out our Instagram for some pics of this unbelievable spot
    Note: Free with your Bolivia Hop wristband.
  • Enjoy Ceviche, the national dish of Peru, on the rooftop of Restaurant Paracas – with one of the best views of the city. Note: exclusive discounted price when you show your Bolivia Hop wristband
  • Ballestas Islands: See Paracas wildlife such as penguins, sea lions, marine birds and sometimes even dolphins or whales. The tour of the ‘poor man’s Galapagos’ lasts about 2 hours and begins at 08:00am or 10:00am.

Recommended Number Of Nights In Paracas

We recommend at least 1 night.

This will allow you to do BOTH the Ballestas Islands and the Paracas National Reserve (not possible to do both unless you stay a night).

Also allows time to do some other activities, as well as get to know your other Hopsters on your 1st night of your trip as most people usually go out for food and drinks together.

Bolivia Hop Insider Tip: For those very short on time, you can take the 6am Express bus from Lima to Paracas, do the Ballestas Islands OR the National Reserve, and then take the 1pm bus from Paracas to Huacachina (Hopstage 2).

As always, if you love Paracas, you can hop off and stay as long as you want!. You can decide this up to 12 hours before the next bus!

Accommodation

Book your own hotel or else see below for our recommended partners who offer special deals to Bolivia Hop passengers. Accommodation CAN be reserved with your Bolivia Hop onboard guide but we recommend this mainly for dorm rooms as a lot of private rooms sell out in advance.

Hopstage 2 : Paracas To Huacachina

Bus Details

Meeting point in Paracas is Los Frayles Hotel (within 50 meters of all major hostels and hotels).

Buses depart at 1pm sharp.

Top Things To Do In Huacachina

  • Explore the only desert oasis in South America
  • Visit a Pisco Vineyard and learn all about how the national drink of Peru is made
  • Camp overnight in the dunes and gaze at the stars
  • Relax by the pool and soak in the heat of the desert
  • Dunebuggy and Sandboarding: Guaranteed to be one of the biggest adrenalin rushes you will have in your life! Dune Buggy through the dunes of the desert, sandboard down and finish it all off by taking some stunning snaps of the desert sunset at the end. The tour begins at 16:00pm and lasts 2 hours.

Recommended Number Of Nights In Huacachina

We recommend at least 1 night in Huacachina as this gives you time to do the Dune Buggy and Sandboarding ,as well as the Pisco Vineyard Tour and still have enough time to climb the dunes and gasp at the incredible Oasis. Huacachina is also famous for its nightly BBQ and our guides often host free salsa lessons.

As always, if you love Huacachina, you can hop off and stay as long as you want!. You can decide this up to 12 hours before the next bus!

Accommodation

Book your own hotel/hostel or see below for our recommended partners who offer special deals to Bolivia Hop passengers. Accommodation CAN be reserved with your Peru Hop onboard guide but we recommend this mainly for dorm rooms as a lot of private rooms sell out in advance.

Hopstage 3 : Huacachina To Nazca To Cusco

Bus Details

Meeting point in Huacachina is Wild Rover Hostel (within 50 meters of all major hostels and hotels).

Buses depart at 1pm sharp.

Top Things To Do In Nazca & Cusco

  • Explore the historic city of Cusco and Nazca
  • Venture to the Sacred Valley and walk through one of the many trails set out by the Incas long ago (Cusco)
  • Go white water rafting in Urubamba/Apurimac rivers (Cusco)
  • Go quad biking by the fascinating Moray terraces and Maras salt flats (Cusco)
  • Go horseback riding to local places such as Kenko, Temple of the Moon, Puka Pukara, Tambomachay and more (Cusco)
  • Nazca Flights Flight: If you want to do the Nazca Lines Flight, you can sign up for the private shuttle service that we help organize through our onboard guide. The shuttle departs Huacachina at 8:30am, you take the flight at 11am and then you can meet our Bolivia Hop bus at 7pm in Nazca.

    Ask your guide for more information about this.

  • Machu Picchu: Do either a trek (Classic Inca Trail or Salkantay), or maybe a combined trek/biking tour (Inka Jungle Trek) or take the train in and back (can be done as a full day but 2 days staying the night before in Aguas Calientes is advised).

  • Rainbow Mountain: Discover the strange and unique site, famed for the colors that give it the “rainbow” aspect. Only recently discovered, it’s become one of Peru’s most beautiful attractions. If you want to learn more, click <a href=”https://www.rainbowmountaintravels.com/regular-tour/” target=”_blank”>here</a>!

Recommended Number Of Nights In Cusco

We recommend spending at least 3-4 nights in Cusco, (not including a trek to Machu Picchu) so that you can experience as much of this Inca city as possible. From the jaw-dropping Rainbow Mountain, filled with beautiful rock minerals and views to the fortress of Sacsayhuaman that guards the city there is endless amazing things to do in Cusco. Ask our guides for more information if you’re not sure!

As always, if you love Cusco, you can hop off and stay as long as you want! You can decide this up to 12 hours before the next bus!

Accommodation

Unfortunately, we do not offer special discounts for hotels/hostels in La Paz. You would have to book on your own from one of the many options to choose from for all types of travelers!

Info About Our Luxury Buses

Bolivia Hop – #1 Bus Company In Boivia

As well as an unbeatable safety record, Bolivia Hop is also famous for its punctuality and comfort. In South America, where things often run later than scheduled, we are very proud to say we achieve a 98.5% on-time arrival for each trip.

If comparing Bolivia Hop to other bus companies, make sure you check their safety record, past accidents, as well as their Tripadvisor page (if they even bother to have one) as often you will find there is a reason why some bus companies have “cheaper” prices than Bolivia Hop.

Features Of Our Buses

  • 40 semi-bed reclining seats: All with sponge foam pads for added comfort.
  • Modern and clean toilet: Unlike public buses that often smell bad and are not cleaned regularly.
  • High-tech temperature controlled air system: We ensure it is never too hot or too cold.
  • 3 LCD TVs on board: Just sit back and enjoy English-speaking movies on longer journeys.
  • Highest quality brake and suspension system: To ensure that every passenger has a smooth and seamless journey.
  • Blankets for every passenger: Snuggle up and get some sleep on longer trips.
  • GPS monitoring system: Allows us to track our buses every step of the way and monitor driver velocity.
  • USB ports on every seat: Charge your phone or any device throughout your whole trip.

Bus Safety Controls

  • Large team of drivers: Our drivers are not overworked/tired as is often the case on other buses.
  • Tour guide onboard: Our tour guide does regular checks on the drivers.
  • Seatbelts: We have a seatbelt for every passenger and ask our passengers to wear them at all times.
  • 24 hour GPS monitoring: Every bus is monitored from a secure point via GPS…we always know where the bus is and if it is taking any unscheduled stops.
  • Constant contact: The drivers and the guide communicate continuously by telephone with the Bolivia Hop office.
  • No tight deadlines: Our drivers are under NO pressure to arrive at a certain time, no need for increased speed or unnecessary risks.
  • Lake crossing capabilities between Copacabana and La Paz. Our bus is purposely built for crossing the lake. Don’t worry, passengers cross on a different boat. Some companies put passengers on the bus as it floats across the lake to try save some money, which is CRAZY!

Frequently Asked Questions

You might have some questions about our service and of course Peru itself. Our FAQs are aimed at helping you with any questions you may have.

Just click on any question and get the answer straight away!

What health and hygiene protocols are in place during the trip?

The health and safety of all of our passengers is, and has always been, our top priority. Due to the current situation, we've examined our protocols, journeys and service to make sure that we exceed the safety expectations of everyone who travels with us. We sought guidance from the World Health Organization and government agencies, and, because of years of experience, we've been able to help define protocols for travel in Bolivia. We're surpassing safety standards, for you, the passenger, and will continue doing so moving forward.

What exactly is a hop-on, hop-off bus?

Our buses follow a specific route and you can hop-on and hop-off at each of our destinations whenever you like, according to our timetable. Your pass is valid for 1 year in 1 direction, so you can stay as long as you want in 1 place or just follow our recommended schedule!

How do I change my itinerary while on the road?

Once you book a ticket, you will get your unique reservation code on your booking confirmation that gives you access to the HOP LOGIN. There, you'll be able to change your travel dates, pick-up locations and put your pass on hold. It's that simple! All changes to your itinerary have to be made a MINIMUM OF 12 HOURS BEFORE YOUR NEXT DEPARTURE DATE!

How do I book extra tours?

We accept tour reservations on our buses but we always recommend reserving tours in advance and paying securely online via FindLocalTrips.com to avoid costly ATM withdrawal fees and currency exchange rate charges.

They offer a very flexible change of tour date policy to Bolivia Hop passengers. Changes are free of charge right up until the day before the tour is due to start.

Is Bolivia Hop available for everybody?

Families, single travelers, couples and groups of friends of all ages are welcome to join us traveling through Bolivia and Peru. Our buses always carry a mix of people from different countries and age groups, that’s what makes traveling with Bolivia Hop such a great experience.

Booking in advance?

We are proud that word of mouth from our ex-hopsters means our tickets often sell out in advance, so we strongly recommend you book as soon as possible. Remember that once you have a ticket, you can change your start date up to 24 hours before departure.

Do the buses run on time?

Bolivia Hop is an EXTREMELY punctual service, especially compared to other Bolivian bus companies who are unfortunately late a lot (as can be seen from their tripadvisor reviews). If you have a tour or hotel booked and in the very rare case our bus is late, our onboard guides will help you by calling your tours and hotels to assist you as much as possible, but really this should never happen on Bolivia Hop.
