This is a small list of buses and combis to go to Humahuaca, Purmamarca, Juella, Iruya, Xavi, etc. .. We are going to try to keep it updated. If you have any data or reference you want to add just send us an email (antiguatilcara@gmail.com) so we can share the information with everyone.


  • Section from San Salvador de Jujuy to La Quiaca (going through Purmamarca, Tilcara and Humuahuaca)
    The companies that make this journey are Evelia, Balut, Panamericano, Jama, Quiaqueño, Cotta Norte. A good alternative to visit these destinations is with a shared taxi.
  • Service Frequency (from Tilcara)
    To Purmamarca and La Quiaca: every 2 hours
    To Humahuaca and San Salvador de Jujuy, every 45 min.
  • To take into account: Since Purmamarca is not over the Route 9, but 3km inward over Route 52, not all the buses stop in Purmamarca. You can ask to be left at the crossroad of Route 9 and Route 52 and walk the 3 km. If you decide to wait for a Bus, either from Tilcara or from Jujuy, that enters Purmamarca, the frequency of these buses is every 2 hours approx., and they are called "local services". They differ from "fast or direct services" in that they do not enter villages far from Route 9.
