Train and bus schedules, Sucre/Potosi/Uyuni/La Paz?
(Toledo, Ohio, USA)
Hello, My son and I are planning a trip to Bolivia in early March. The three places we most want to visit are the salt flats of Uyuni, Potosi and La Paz. We only have 9 days, so we want to get around the country as efficiently as possible. Planning this has been difficult, since there don't seem to be very many up-to-date train and bus schedules online.
We land in La Paz. Our tentative plan is to fly immediately to Sucre via Aerosur, and from there go to Potosi, and then Uyuni, and then back to La Paz. I would welcome general suggestions and comments on our plan, but I also have some specific questions:
1. Does the train still run from Sucre to Potosi, and if so, what is its schedule of departure and arrival?
2. What is the best way to get from Potosi to Uyuni? Are there buses? Is there a train? Where can I find schedules?
3. Does the train still run from Uyuni to Oruro, and if so, on what schedule? If not, what is the fastest way back to La Paz from Uyuni?
Thanks to anyone who can help. Jim
