Transport from Piura to YurimaguasHey guys you will see me posting on here alot more I in the middle of planning a huge 80 day trip through South America from Ecuador to Brazil.
Anyway im struggling connecting one part of the trip i wondered if someone could help me out.
Im trying to get from Piura to Yurmaguas, we are on a budget so Ive been looking for bus routes, and on other forums people say that there is a bus etc, but I cant find any specific details about it i.e what time it leaves, where from, how long it takes how much it costs etc. Could anyone help me out?
Once we are in Yurimaguas we are getting the boat to Iquitos.
Thank you in advanced for any further information

1I would be surprised if there is a direct bus, more likely a series for connections would get you there. There are definitely buses from Chiclayo to Tarapoto, with onward connections from there. A decent guide book should give you an idea of travel times and routes. Ignore prices though as they are always out of date. A semicama bus in Peru these days costs $2-3 per hour of travel.
Best just to keep a flexible itinerary and go with the flow once you arrive.

2Bus to Chiclayo (3 hrs) then either direct bus to Tarapoto (overnight) or better still, to Chachapoyas and spend a few days around Chacha.
From Chachapoyas 4 collectivos will see you in Yurimaguas in a days travel via Tarapotol. The road from tarapoto to Yurimaguas is now paved and collectivos ply the route in about 3 hrs.

3Bus from Piura to Chiclayo and then I recommend a stop in Chachapoyas. This is a great opportunity to visit Kuelap and the other pre inca ruins, water falls, caves, villages etc. in the north of Peru. From Chacha, TURISMO SELVA van leaves two or three time daily. Take the van during the day it is safer and the scenary is fantastic. nother option you can take, is a night big bus to tarapoto and then a taxi to Yurimaguas, Then board the ferry boat Eduardo for Iquitos.
