CAN SOMEONE TELL ME THE CHEAPEST WAY TO GET FROM SANTIAGO TO BUENOS AIRES AND THEN COME BACK, I START SCHOOL IN SANTIAGO ON THE 6TH, SO I NEED TO BE BACK HERE BY THEN. TODAY IS FEB 27, SO THE SOONER THE INFO COMES IN THE BETTER. I DON'T MIND STOPPING IN MENDOZA TO CHECK IT OUT. I HEARD ITS BEAUTIFUL RIGHT NOW, SO I AM GOOD TO GO. PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP!
Bus it. Cheapest would be taking an international bus from Santiago to Mendoza, and change to a bus to BsAs there.
To answer your pm so that everyone benefits from it:
If I remember correctly, busses to Mendoza depart from Los Heróes bus terminal. To get there, take subway #1 to Los Heróes.
does anyone know if you can rent a car or if it's even drivable?
It's drivable if you know how to handle mediocre roads at high altitudes, but you'll have trouble finding a rental that you can take out of the country. In most cases, that's against company regulations.
