Lima-Mancora bus


I am planning a trip to Peru in September and want to get from Lima to Mancora, preferably by bus, and was wondering if anyone can help with a few questions!

What is the best bus company to use?

Is it best to book tickets in advance or can they be booked from Lima? Are the buses of a reasonable quality? (I'm not too fussy - done a lot of travelling around Asia by bus but don't fancy spending 16 hours on run down mini-bus!)

Do the buses run overnight both ways?

Any help much appreciated!

The most recommended bus company is Peru is Cruz del Sur - they have an outstanding safety record, and the buses are very comfortable.

You can buy your tickets online if you want, (www.cruzdelsur.com.pe) or get them in Lima a day or 2 ahead of travel.

You'll love Mancora - a gorgeous beach!

Probably the best buses to Mancora are run by a company named Oltursa
