from Tacna to Arequipa with Flores or with Moquegua?

Hi,

we want to go from Arica to Tacna and take a bus to Arequipa from there.

I know that Flores has the most frequent connections, but Flores does not have a good safety reputation.

Does anyone know about EMPRESA DE TRANSPORTES MOQUEGUA? Our hotel in Arequipa has recommended this company to me, but I would be grateful for some more information. The only mention of Moquegua in this forum was quite negative.

Kind regards

Meggie

So you think Moquegua is not safer than Flores? Do you know both companies?

Thank you for answering.

No, there are no official statistics or anything, so is is a useless debate. Flores is a very large company, so if you have hundreds of busses you also have more accidents. Local people don't care which company, they just take the next bus.

Sounds reasonable.

Since you seem to be informed quite well - do you have any idea how much we (2 people) would have to pay approximately in case we would take a taxi (private transfer) from Tacna to Arequipa?

Thanks again!

You should ask this question on a Peruvian forum.
