Chachapoyas Transportation: 4 reviews and 9 photos


There are several buses and collectivos that ply the dirt road to Chachapoyas. The transportation in this kneck woods of Peru is dirt cheap at under $1 USD per hour traveled. Buses to Chiclayo take about 8 hours and usually ran at night.

For those visiting Kuelap, you can hire a taxi that can take you to the ruins (3 hours away). It's a fun day trip near Chachapoyas. The cost is a bit high for the taxi, but worth it. Haggling is the game if you're taking the taxi.
