From San Rafael
San Rafael is a 2 hour drive from Las Lenas. If you are flying to San Rafael airport (AFA) from Buenos Aires and require transport to Las Lenas and have booked hotel or apartment accommodation with us we can organize an individual shared transfer or a private transfer for you or your group. If you arrive in San Rafael from Mendoza or Bariloche via bus and want to continue to Las Lenas on the Iselin bus we have bus info lower down on this page. You can also book direclty for a shared van transfer with Atuel Travel, info listed lower down the page, that leaves directly from the San Rafael bus station and takes you right to your accommodation in Las Lenas instead of just to the Las Lenas bus terminal like the normal bus does. We recommend the Atuel Travel van over the normal bus, it is a great service. If arriving at a weird time, or if you are only in Las Lenas for a few days or staying in Los Molles, another opton is to rent a car with AVIS. You can email them ahead of time and they will come meet you right at the bus station! This is especially convenient if you arrive on the Andesmar night bus from Bariloche that arrives in San Rafael at 6:00 AM as if you rent a car you do not have to wait until 9:45 AM for the Iselin bus. Please contact Avis directly!

We highly recommend AVIS in San Rafael as have had very positive experiences with them and they can meet you at the bus station or your accommodation and you can make reservations by email instead of having to phone. If you want to get to Las Lenas before or after the only daily bus leaves at 9:45 AM this is very handy. You can pay AVIS with an international credit card. There are also AVIS, and other rental car agencies in Mendoza and Bariloche but will charge you a fee for the drop off in another city than originally rented. You can also book a car with all of these agencies at www.travelocity.com.
