Best way to get from La Paz to Santiago??


My partner and I are doing a tour that ends in La Paz. Our next tour starts two weeks later starting from Buenos Aries. In that two weeks we want to make our own way from La Paz to Santiago and then to Buenos Aires. We would like to sight see a long the way (we have 2 weeks to spare). What's the best way of doing this? Train? Bus? We have no idea...

Not many trains around these days. One option... La Paz to Uyuni. Take the tour of the salar but with the option of being dropped off in San Pedro. Make your way by bus to the coast. Antofogasta is one stopping point..excellent seafood. Is it scenic? You are going through the Atacama desert. One of the driest spots on the planet. Makes the US deserts look like swamps. The coast highway is a good road. Chilean buses are some of the best on the continent.
