Bus from Santiago to Buenos Aires

Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Bus from Santiago to Buenos Aires

I´m currently staying in Santiago, and loving it, but I need to get a bus from here to Buenos Aires in about a weeks time. I arrived by bus in Santiago from Lima (60 hours!!!!) and that was with Ormeño, but although the company itself were very good the bus was old and very uncomfortable.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Many Thanks


P.S Also if anybody is thinking about taking that trip around the same time, it would be great to have some company!

Hi Lisa,

The buses in Chile and Argentina are plush in comparison to the clapped out old ones in Peru and Bolivia. If you are travelling to BA go for a cama all the way - its totally worth it!! I recommend TurBus - check out the website - or Pullman or AndesMar in Argentina.

Look forward to the crossing over the Andes - its spectacular if you do it by day.

Hope that helps!

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you so much for you help. Although I had a look on Turbus and they don´t seem to have Buenos Aires on their destinations list. Am I doing something wrong?

As you can probably tell I´m new to all this and I could use all the help I can get.

Thanks Again
