We asked the lady at the front desk if there was going to be a stop for dinner, she said yes. For dinner and for breakfast. I asked her to be sure if we needed to buy food before leaving. She said no need. Unfortunately, there was no stop for dinner
Our (2) TVs didnt work. As that is the only activity, it seems wrong to pay the extremely high price and not getting everything that is included. Also, the seats on the back row don’t go back almost at all so it was impossible to sleep -> very uncomfortable trip.
Was a very luxurious bus with entertainment system, plugins, Wi-Fi and the seats could go in sleeping position. Would recommend it! Only downside was the small collection of English movies compared to Spanish ones, but that's just a minor detail.
We were robbed along with the other 15 or so passengers by 4 armed passengers onboard the bus (Copetran)to Bogota from Santa Marta on the 29th Sept 2018 departing at 8pm. I would like to know how 4 armed passengers with guns and long blades managed to get onboard, and why we weren't searched before boarding? I find this very negligent towards our safety and your future customers as well.
Nice and friendly staff and very punctual but the bus itself was not the best for nighttime travel..The seats don't recline much so they're a bit uncomfortable to sleep in and neither the power source nor the wifi was working on the bus.
The bus itself was really good (individual screens, very comfortable seats) but the air conditioning during the trip was CRAZY. I've travelled a lot in Colombia by bus and I know there's usually a lot of air conditioning so I tend to bring warm clothes. But this bus was way more than usual. Also a lot of seats couldn't go down so we had to move around to find some which did to be able to sleep. And last thing : we arrived 2 hours late ! Again I'm used to buses in Colombia which are not always exactly on time. But 2 hours is a bit much I'd say. I'd still recommend this bus line because the bus was really nice on itself. Very clean toilets too
Very fancy buses. I have taken many overnight buses on my travels and this was by far the nicest yet. There was plenty if leg room, the seats reclined very far back, there was a screen for each seat with shows and movies in English and Spanish and the WiFi actually worked!!! Great easy trip!
