Lima is the country’s travel hub. Cruz del Sur, Tepsa, and Excluciva, among others, run overnight services (10 hours) from Lima to Ayacucho. Likewise, Cruz del Sur, Oltsura, and Movil Bus have many daily buses between Huancayo and Lima (7 hours). Alternatively, you can reach Huancayo from Ayacucho (12 hours) by overnight service on Expreso Internacional Molina—but prepare for a very rough road. If you're looking to go from Lima to Huancavelica, Expreso Antezana and Megabus have daily buses, while GM International has overnight service (7 hours) between Huánuco and Lima. Colectivos (shared taxis) travel between the Central Highlands cities and can be much quicker (though slightly more expensive) than bus travel. The location of the paraderos (taxi stops) changes, so ask your hotel receptionist for directions.
