Question

Hi! I would like to know what kind of options there are from going from Lima to Lake Titicaca, and perhaps from there to La Paz in...

...Bolivia. Are there any buses that go there (and how about the safety of those buses?), or maybe a train (I thought I heard something like that, that there is a train service to Lake Titicaca)? And how much will this cost, approximately? Already thanks!

Hi
Going Lima - La Paz and visit Titicaca Lake.
You can fly by Lan Peru or Aerocondor or Star Peru to Juliaca, from Juliaca city to Puno City in the shores of Titicaca lake is one hour.
From Puno to La Paz is easy to find transport.
Go to Edgar Adventures in Puno in Lima st boulevard easy to find.Travelling to La Paz is nice and you may stop in Copacabana and change buses from Peruvian bus to a Bolivian bus continue to La Paz..

You can go to Punoby bus threw Arequipa or Cusco..using Cruz del Sur or OrmeƱo buses, Tepsa buses are ok.
Price are relative using plane to Puno (one way) and then bus to La Paz can be arround us 150.

If you're traveling independently, long distance bus is the most cost effective method of travel in Peru and for getting into Bolivia (unless you want to explore internal flights - ).

Taking bus to get Lake Titicaca from Lima is like 20 hours, so is better idea to take airplane to Juliaca, from there 30 minutes driving van or taxi to Puno (Lake Titicaca). From this site you can take bus to La paz.

Take a plane from Lima to Cusco and buy the airline ticket . From Cusco to Puno buy a bus service in First Class Bus (is the name of the cia).

You can go to Puno by train service of Peru Rail but the cost is $ 420.

Take care, Jorge
Traveling by bus can be a bit grueling. On the other hand it's a great way to discover a country if you have the time. Most bus companies have berths so you can actually get a few hours of sleep. Try Lima Cusco and then Cusco Puno. From Puno there are buses that will take you across the border and to La Paz.
Alternatively, you can fly from Lima to Juliaca, where the Puno airport is located and then follow plan A.
Good luck.

From Lima to Lake Titikaka the options are: 1, direct bus to Puno. 2, flight Lima - Juliaca. From Puno to La Paz are buses and colectivos available. The train to Puno runs from Cusco. Safety on the buses is Ok, of course the very cheap ones are not the best. The bus price is about U$50
Hi there...nowdays becuase of the strikes in Peru overall in Puno and Cusco area as they blocked the roads, is not safetly travel by bus maybe you can stucked on there...we always suggest take a plane for your guarantee. The tour in Puno 3 days /2 nights US$210 at single room
