San Antonio de Los Cobres to San Pedro de Atacama

We want to take public transport (bus) in late April/early May from San Antonio de Los Cobres to San Pedro de Atacama. Are there any regular buses?

Dear, there is no direct public transport from San Antonio de los Cobres to San Pedro de Atacama.

You should come back to Salta to take the bus to SPA, check here

I hope this helps you.

Warm regards.

If I were you I would choose Purmamarca better, much nicer tha San antonio de los Cobres and much nicer than SP de Atacama. And cheaper also! YOu can take a bus to Purmamarca take a night there and he next day arrenge starting to SP de Atacama from PUrmamarca. BUt you have to have everythiong arranged from SALTA. with PUllman or Geminis...

Just to correct the above:

You need to prebook your ticket out of Purmamarca as the buses fill up quickly. People were having to wait a week to get a reservation. True this was in Jan when all the dreadlock brigade was on the move.

The route is now served by Andesmar and can be booked online. Being Chilean companis, the other two can't as they don't take foreign ccs.

Hi,

Just a quick question about the EX Bed service and SC Semi Bed?

I would like to buy the EX Bed service but it is on the lower floor?

Is it good?

or maybe I should get the SC semi bed on the upper floor?

any comments

You do not have much to choose.... or Geminis or Pullman, And you do not need a Cama bus as the tris is during the day.

Thanks Giena,

Do Geminis or Pullman also offer on-line booking in advance? Not sure if we can book the seats with Pullman or Geminis on our arrival? I am worried we can't book the seat on the day we want.

I know they run the bus 3 times each week? how many buses do they run on the day?

Just noticed that Londinense already answered my question. The bus fare of Andesmar is more expensive than other two ( Geminis or Pullman).

It is about USD40 from salta to Atacama
