The Get to Lima 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 : Cusco to Nazca to Huacachina

Bus Details

Bolivia Hop Private Terminal just 10/15 minutes from hotels/hostels. Click here to view map (address will be on booking confirmation).

Bus departs at 7:00pm sharp.

  • 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
  • Nazca Flights Flight: The best way to fit the Nazca flight tour into your trip from Cusco to Lima is by hopping off in Nazca at 4:00 pm, spending the night and then taking the flight early the following morning.  In the afternoon, you can then hop on the next Bolivia Hop bus coming through Nazca or if you prefer, you can make your own way to Huacachina in time for the sandboarding tour in the afternoon and continue to Paracas the same day.

  • 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 Bolivia Hop onboard guide but we recommend this mainly for dorm rooms as a lot of private rooms sell out in advance.

Hopstage 2 : Huacachina to Paracas

Bus Details

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

Buses depart at 6:30pm sharp.

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
  • Enjoy Ceviche, the national dish of Peru, on the rooftop of Restaurant Paracas – with one of the best views of the city (exclusive discount when you show your Bolivia Hop wristband)
  • Paracas National Reserve where the desert meets the sea, a truly unbelievable sight (free with your Peru 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 staying at least 1 night in Paracas. This way you will have the chance to experience the Ballestas Islands boat tour, seeing the wild marine animals and visit the Paracas National Reserve, where the desert meets the sea.

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.

  • Visit the vastly interesting Historical center of Lima
  • Walk through the enchanting water fountain park at Circuito mágico Del agua and watch the spectacular evening light show
  • Larcomar: Built into the side of the cliff and mostly underground, this mall makes for quite the sight. It has incredible views of the Pacific Ocean and is perfect to spend an afternoon shopping.

Recommended Number Of Nights In Lima

We recommend spending at least 2-3 nights in Lima, so that you can experience as much of the capital as possible. Walk through the beautiful Miraflores, overseeing the ocean, the historic center, or the bohemian Barranco. Ask our guides for more information if you’re not sure!

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.
