Due to the size of Argentina, air travel is the most convenient when travelling large distances. There are a number of airlines servicing the country, however many a routed via Buenos Aires, which can cause inconvenience and cost, depending on your end destination.
The public bus network in Argentina is excellent and, despite the long driving times, the vehicles and very comfortable and allow you to see more of this amazing country. There are a number of different classes, even sleepers for overnight journeys. Larger luggage is stowed in the hold and security is generally very good.
Although there have been some cut-backs in long-distance train services, the rail network continues to reach Buenos Aires and some surrounding areas, as well as services to Posadas and Cordoba. Trains are invariably cheaper than buses, but are slower and go to fewer destinations. We advise buying train tickets in advance during peak periods.
