Bus

Frustratingly, there's no central bus station in Tegus, meaning that bus lines are scattered all over the city. Unfortunately many bus depots are in Comayagüela, the least safe area of town – though a spate of recent gang attacks has led to several companies relocating to safer areas in eastern Tegus, and now few 1st-class bus companies run their services from there.

In general you'll need to know which bus you want to take rather than simply turning up at a bus terminal and waiting, so calling ahead is always a smart move.

International & Long-distance Buses

There are four recommended international bus companies:

Hedman Alas Connects Tegus with San Salvador and Guatemala City. Two departures offices: one in Comayagüela and a far nicer terminal located behind Multiplaza Mall in the southeast of the city.

Platinum Goes to El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua.

Pullmantur Connects Tegus with San Salvador and Guatemala City.

Tica Bus Goes to El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and the Mexican border, and has connections to Costa Rica and Panama.
