take the bus to Tupiza

Tip — Unless you really really love trains then take the bus. It goes to Tupiza, which is probably better than Uyuni for doing the Salt Flat tour, and only takes 1.5 hours to get there, as opposed to 4 by train. What’s more, unlike the train the bus arrives at a reasonable hour, and the stretch of road between Villazón and Tupiza is paved, while the train is steaming hot and rattles incessantly. (N.B. I am talking about the Wara Wara train, I have no experience of the more expensive Expreso Sur.)
