Nazca to Arequipa by plane

Hello,

We are planning a trip this August, where we would like to substitute hanging out in Nazca for the whole day and then taking an overnight bus to Arequipa with leaving by a plane to Arequipa later in the afternoon to avoid a sleepless night on a bus on a road with crazy Latin-American drivers (just read a couple of other posts, sorry!). Seems all the older posters say there is no such flight. Did anything change?

Thank you!

There are no domestic flights departing from Nazca. Im sure you could charter a flight but the cost would be crazy.

You need to get back to Lima to fly to Arequipa.

Thanks!

Is it better to take an afternoon bus or an overnight bus to Arequipa?

Considering safety on the roads, personal safety in the bus, and whether it is worth watching the scenery outside the bus window...

Not much of anything worth seeing out the bus windows South of Lima in my opinion and the roads are pretty good and mostly flat until just before Arequipa. There have been reports of robberies on the road from Nazca to Cusco but not on the road from Nazca to Arequipa. Its 6+ hours by bus from Nazca back to Lima and then you have to get to the airport and deal with flight departure times so if it were me Id get an overnight bus from Nazca to Arequipa. If its with Cruz Del Sur pay the extra to get a seat downstairs and get some sleep arriving in Arequipa early in the morning and ready to go.
