Has anyone travel south america alone by bus? How safe is it? Is there a web site where you can book the buses?
From Buenos Aires to Caracas or backwards, going by bus through Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela.
I've never been to Venezuela but you should have no issues whatsoever with the other countries. I travel as a solo female and have always felt safe. almost 10 years agoAnswered by Ayngelina - Baconismagic.ca via WorldNomads.com
I spent 7 months in South America last year ( april to october ) and travelled mostly by bus . As long as you travel with the best bus companies , you should not have any problems apart from the odd sexist remark by a local . Just ignore them . Take warm clothes as most of the bus drivers have the aircon on max . Make sure they have a toilet that works . Always pay the extra for 1st class if they have one , and take lots of snacks and drinks . Happy travelling almost 10 years ago
