I am travelling down central then southern america. I will need to zip through from Colombia to Lima, Peru (sadly I don´t have the time to really see Equador, or northern Peru). From what I´ve read so far, it seems that I would be best off taking a flight, as the buses will take several days and involve potentially dodgy boarder crossings, but I am on a tight budget, so am not quite sure. I am mid 20´s English girl travelling by myself, some basic Spanish.
What do you think? Has anyone bussed it, and how did you find it? Just how long did it take, and cost? Should I rule out the bus option all together?
Thank you for your help on this,
