Opinions about How to Get to the Alpujarra
By Car vs by Bus
If you have or rented a car of course you need to go by car, it is he most practical thing to do. If the plan is only to visit only one village, for example Pampaneira, the bus is a good option.

There are very few buses and if you get off the bus in one village, you might not have another bus to go to another village. In the car you can stop wherever you want, there are many interesting places to visit. The Alpujarra is unique.
