Manu got the inspiration for the interior of the bus from a previous visit to Argentina. He ran into a fisherman with a similar old bus parked at the beach. The fisherman lived in the bus and had a wood stove installed in his “house”.

La Chanchita has started to receive interest, and the Mercedes Benz bus already has a few bookings this summer and winter.

La Chanchita will serve as your base camp with complimentary bus station or airport pick up. Whether you want some extreme sports or just a cool bus to chill out in, Manu and la Chanchita can take you there in style.
