The bus ride from Puno to the border took just over two hours. The Bolivia Peru border crossing may sound like a daunting task, and sometimes it is. It can be easy to run into problems, delays and just a whole lot of hassle. We worked out a plan with our bus driver. The Driver drove through the gates and approached the Border Patrol officer giving a list of names of his passengers. We walked through the Gateway and the officer asked $20.00 for entry and $20.00 on exit….otherwise we could have been stuck at the Border for hours.
