La Paz to Uyuni

by griff6248 Online Now Apr 2, 2006 at 11:57 AM

Hi I am arriving into La Paz on Sat morning the 27th May and want to get to Uyuni.
From what i have read i can catch a bus leaving at 4-5 pm on the sat to Oruro, that takes about 3 hours then from Oruro to Uyuni you can get an overnight bus that arrives into uyuni at 5 am the next day.

Is the above correct and do the buses run everyday?
Also when u arrive at oruro are you sure going to get on to the next bus.

Also is it best to book a tour of the salt planes when you arrive at uyuni or before.

Thank you very much for your help
Steven

    ok...i can suggest you to take a direct bus from la paz to uyuni without taking another bus (16 de julio companies name). it only stops in oruro, i think just for a short time. it departs from la paz at 17:00 and arrives in uyuni at 5:00 of the next day. but if want to go more confortable you can go to oruro from la paz. then catch a train direct to uyuni...the train departures at 15:30 from oruro and arrives in uyuni at 22:30 more or less...ok, hope to be helpful and if you still have some question be free to mail me.
