Peru: Travel Huanchaco to Huaraz (overnight bus)

​For the quickest and most cost effective way to travel overnight from Huanchaco to Huaraz, welcome. You’ve come to the right place.

You can of course plan accordingly and spend the day jumping from one local bus to another but us Ungracefuls are budget chasers thus both pro ‘night travel’ travellers.

We thought best to save our last day in Huanchaco for the beach knowing we had a simple, safe, affordable and stress-free evening of travel ahead, and as always, it saves on a nights accomodation.


Prebook The Nightbus:

Movil and Lineas are the only two companies that run overnight busses from Trujillo. Two very reputable and reliable bus companies I might add.

Movil have a bus leaving at 9.30pm and another leaving at 10.30pm, both arriving into Huaraz between 5am and 6.30am.

Whereas Lineas have has just the one, leaving at 9.30pm

Note: Most definitly prebook, no later than the morning you plan to leave. We booked ours the evening before. These busses tend to fill up fast.

From Huanchacho:

If you’re staying in Huanchaco, there is no need to travel into Trujillo just to pre-book.

Facing the pier, walk left down the beach towards the police station. Across the road is a money exchange office. Book your tickets here and if you’re lucky, the kind gentleman behind the counter may also give you some free sweets!

We booked the 9.30pm bus with Linea at 50sol(€14) per person.

From Trujillo:

If you’re in Trujillo, pop over to either bus terminal (in Peru, each bus has its own terminal rather than one united front), bith terminals are within walking distance from each other.

Credit card holders can easily book online via the companies’ website or sites such as


From Huanchaco to Trujillo:

Whatever company you choose you will need to get your butt to Trujillo.

You won’t miss the red Huanchaco public busses that frequent the sandy streets. And at 1.70s (€0.50), to get to either Movil or Linea bus stations in Trujillo, take the ‘H’ bus.

The ‘H’ is displayed on the front left hand side of the windscreen.

For the night bus, we recommend you leaving Huanchaco no later than 8pm, keep some time for any contingencies.

Once on the ‘H’ bus, mention to the ayudante what bus terminal you need to get off at, sit back and relax.

Either way you won’t miss the terminals and your stop. The overly sized logos, hissing busses and small crowds are the first tell tale signs.

We were very pleased with the comfort of Linea bus company. No issues whatsoever and with comfortable cama-bed seats, pillows, a blanket and a small snack on departure; we are more than happy to recommend.

Safe travelling folks. Huaraz awaits!

I’m a self-diagnosed wanderlust sufferer who fell victim to the travel bug. As someone who has yearned for the freedom to travel for as long as I can remember in 2017, I decided to quit my dream job, run away from the "marriage and baby" queries and trade the societal life for a life on the road. Now, I spend my days wandering through the unknown, being nosy as hell while sharing stories, building websites, helping others plan their backpacking adventures, writing, filming, snapping and reminding myself to shut up and stop talking every now and again.
