I am flying to Tacna from Lima with intent to takes buses from Tacna to end up In Buenos Aires. What is the best way to get there by bus with just two intervening stops?

Thank you.

That is nearly 3000kms. When you stay stops do you mean change of bus? You could cross to Arica and do a bus from Arica to Santiago (30 hrs) and then take a bus from Santiago to Buenos Aires (20hrs). It might be quicker to go via San Pedro de Atacama to Salta and down Argentina. Not sure about the times for that. These are the companies listed which go from Retiro to Tacna so should work the other way around:
