The main bus station, Terminal Bimodal (Tel: 3-488-3382, also doubles as the train station), is situated to the east of the city centre, between the second and third anillos, or rings. Itâ€™s fairly modern, but gets hectic at times, especially in the evenings. Here youâ€™ll find ATMs, showers, toilets, left-luggage, a bus information desk, tourist information, phone, internet, shops and restaurants. There are a couple of bigger restaurants upstairs with TVs if youâ€™ve got a few hours to wait.
Taxis to the centre will cost you about $1.50, or there are several micros that pass within a few blocks of the main plaza, marked centro, including numbers 4 and 97. The bus terminal is not in the best area so be careful if you plan to walk anywhere, especially at night. Buses leaving for all corners of the country leave from Terminal Bimodal, there is also a provincial section next door will buses for near-by provinces. Itâ€™s recommended to by your ticket at least a few hours in advance to guarantee a seat. There are also a number of minibuses and trufi services that leave from various locations near the old terminal, on the other side of town.
