A vacation that includes Peru and Bolivia has always made a good pairing, but now it is easier than ever to combine a Peru and Bolivia Tour. A new flight from the Peruvian city of Cusco to La Paz in Bolivia has just recently started, as well as a new flight route from La Paz to Lima, opening up more options for those who wish to explore Peru and Bolivia’s highlights. Plus, a new Uyuni-to-Potosí highway has been inaugurated, which will make the interior of Bolivia more accessible.
The airline AmasZonas has begun carrying flights from Cusco-to-La Paz and La Paz-Cusco on weekdays as well as Sundays. Plus, for added flexbility for your travel itinerary, there are immediate connections available to Santa Cruz, Uyuni, and Rurrenabaque. This airline also has daily flights throughout Bolivia to La Paz, Sucre, Uyuni, Cochabamba, and more. AmasZonas uses small airplanes in its fleet: the Aircraft Bombardier CRJ-200 with a capacity of 50 passengers.
For travelers who want to see Cusco and La Paz, two of the major points of interest for those who want to learn about the Inca Empire, this new flight route will make traveling quick and easy.
AmasZonas and StarPerú, two flight carriers in Bolivia and Peru respectively, have worked out an agreement to provide flights from La Paz and Lima. The routes include a stopover in Cusco. This amiable relationship will make it easier for travelers to access multiple Bolivian destinations from Lima or Cusco.
The new highway from Potosi to Uyuni significantly shortens the ride between the cities down to 2.5 hours, making Uyuni and Potosi much more accessible during a tour of Bolivia. Previously, the distances and rough roads between major cities in Bolivia has made it difficult to fit multiple destinations into one trip. But now, the new 200 km road, which cost an upwards of $100 million dollars, will connect these two outliers in southern Bolivia, as well as the 42 indigenous communities between them. Explore the interior of Bolivia on our Potosi, Uyuni & La Paz Tour.
Peru and Bolivia Tours to Cusco and La Paz
Take advantage of this flight route from Cusco to La Paz with a guided tour of Machu Picchu and the La Paz surroundings on the Travels of the Incas Tour. Many people know that Cusco and Machu Picchu were the seat of the Inca Empire, but not many realize that La Paz was also an important city during the Inca Empire. There are also ruins from the most powerful empire before the Incas, the Tiwanaku, located just outside of La Paz.
