Buenos Aires to Las Lenas Charter Bus Overnight and Andesmar Bus

The cheapest way but the longest way to get to Las Lenas from Buenos Aires is by taking the overnight bus is approximately 16 hours one way. Many Argentines from Buenos Aires and some Brazilians and foreigners
take this service and is comfy and safe and a different way to get there and a relaxed experience. We have also
done this many times. There are 3 options for taking the bus from Buenos Aires and the first one is the easiest.

Option#1 Ski Lenas Direct Overnight Charter Bus Round Trip
Round Trip $3120 Argentine Pesos (Approx $235 USD) per person and includes dinner and breakfast on the bus
The bus is Bus Ejecutivo con cama which means an Executive Bus with seats that recline a lot to act like a bed
and there are blankets and pillow and small Tvs with sound to watch recent released movies.
-Leaves Buenos Aires Fridays and Sundays at 6:30 pm direct for Las Lenas

-Leaves Las Lenas Saturdays and Mondays at 6:00 pm direct for Buenos Aires
 

 
The Ski Lenas chárter bus leaves from Plaza Grand Bourd in Palermo. If taking a taxi there tell the driver

“Por favor Plaza Grand Bourd en Palermo en la  calle Ramon Castilla entre Avenida Libertador y Avenida Figueroa Alcorta”

The bus leaves Buenos Aires on Fridays and Sundays at
6:30 PM but you have to be there by the latest 6:00 PM to
check in and put your bags below the bus.

  

 
Option#2  Andesmar Direct Bus Overnight Round Trip 
Information coming soon, you buy these bus tickets directly on the www.andesmar.com website.

Option#3 Andesmar Bus overnight connecting in San Rafael 
Information coming soon, you buy these bus tickets directly on the www.andesmar.com website.


The best Andesmar seats to get are the  nicer downstairs first class Suite seats, these are the  executive bed seats
(these are not real beds, just normal chairs that recline). You get dinner and breakfast ass well as blankets and small pillows and there are tvs and show current dvd movies.  To book the bus go to www.andesmar.com and choose English on the right hand top corner of the website. Then make departure city Buenos Aires (retiro cap fed) and arrival city Las Lenas (Mendoza) or San Rafael (Mendoza)  then click on search.
 
 
*FOR ANDESMAR OR ANY NORMAL ARGENTINE LONG DISTANCE BUSES BE SURE TO PRINT YOUR TICKET CONFIRMATION BEFORE GOING ON THE BUS OR EVEN BETTER BEFORE GETTING TO THE BUS STATION.
YOU NEED TO PRESENT THE PAPER PRINTOUT OF THE TICKET AND THE ID OR PASSPORT YOU GAVE AS ID ON THE ON LINE PURCHASE TO GET ON THE BUS. THEY WILL NOT LET YOU ON JUST WITH THE NAME OR CONF# OR YOU SHOWING THE CONFIRMATION EMAIL ON YOUR SMARTPHONE. If you cannot get on Andesmar you can only buy bus tickets at the Retiro bus station in Buenos Aires.  *PLEASE NOTE*: YOU CAN ONLY BOOK ANDESMAR.COM ON THEIR WEBSITE
WITHIN 1 MONTH OF DESIRED BUENOS AIRES -SAN RAFAEL/LAS LEÑAS DEPARTURE DATE. THEIR WEBSITE IS NOT SET UP TO HANDLE RESERVATIONS EARLIER THAN THAT. WE CANNOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS OR BOOK FOR YOU EITHER.

There is a great transfer option from Buenos Aires EZE International airport to Retiro bus station if you want to get to Las Leñas the day you arrive in Buenos Aires. After you clear  customs on the left side to buy MTL to Retiro and buy it with the transfer to  Retiro Omnibus Station, its about $70 pesos. Go up the ramp, go down one floor and on his right side he will see the Bags storage place. The advantage of going with Andesmar is you can pre-book and prepay on line withacredit card.

 
Daily Bus to San Rafael but NOT on Friday Nights 

If you are not catching the direct bus to Las Leñas on Friday nights, you then have to take an Andesmar bus from Buenos Aires to San Rafael and then thye Iselin bus once you arrive in San Rafael to Las Lenas. On travel days other than Fridays there is no direct bus with Andesmar to Las Leñas and instead you have to choose Departure City Buenos Aires and Arrival City San Rafael (Do
NOT choose Malargue as destino). You need to make sure you arrive in San Rafael before 9:30AM the next day as the 1 Iselin bus leaves San Rafael for Las Leñas at 9:30 and you can book one of these upon arrival in San Rafael at the bus station at the Iselin desk at the bus station and can use credit cards.  For more information on options to get to Las Leñas from San Rafael please visit our Getting There From San Rafael section. The bus and Atuel travel option is listed at the bottom of the page.
