Welcome to La Unión
La Unión has a handy Banco de la Nación with what is surely Peru’s remotest Visa ATM. Hostal Inka House has adequate accommodation in a central location near the market.
All transport arrives/departs from the bus terminal on Commercio at the west end of town. Companies leave around 6pm to 8pm for Lima (S20 to S30, 10 hours) while a couple of buses daily (plus numerous colectivos) ply the route east to Huánuco (S15, five hours) and to Tantamayo (S10, three hours). La Unión Huánuco has a service to Huaraz that departs at the ungodly hour of 3am, taking five hours (S15).
