Bus from Chile -Santiago or Valparaiso

by nic08

Hi,
I´m due to travel from Chile to Mendoza next week and can depart from either Valparaiso or Santiago.
Is there a significant difference in the journey (length of time it takes or variety of services offered-standard or "tourist" transfers) from these departure points?

Many thanks in advance,

N

There's probably not a lot in it at all in terms of time taken but you'll have more choice of departure times if you leave from Santiago. I'm sure all the buses offer pretty much the same service - you'll find a description of the Mendoza -Santiago trip we took with Andesmar on my Chile page. It's a fantatsic trip!

Travel Tips for Mendoza

Villavicencio - home of the famous water

by Trekki

Villavicencio, some 50-60 km north of Mendoza, has been a Thermal Spring Hotel in the past. The building is still visible, and you can have some rest in the beautiful gardens.
A bit off this place is the mineral water facility "Villavicencio", whose bottles you find in the supermarkets, with gas or without gas. On the picture, you can get a slight glimpse of the road, which leads higher up to the Cruz de Paramillos - 3000 m high view point of the cordillera.
The road is called Camino de Caracol (snail road), and it needs at least a 2x4 car.

2 small but weird museums

by mindcrime

If you walk from downtown towards the airport (I did this on my way to Museo Fundacional) you’ll have the opportunity to visit two bizarre museums facing each other at Ituzaingo & Buenos Aires corner. You can visit them both in less that 15’ and they are cheap so take a look (avoid if you are Indiana Jones of course…):

1)Acuario Municipal Mendoza
The Acuario is open daily 9-21:00 and you’ll see some real ugly fishes, frogs and a poor crocodile TEL: 0261- 4253824

2)Centro Anaconda Serpentario
This one is open daily 9:30-13:00 and 15:30-20:00 and for the first time in my life I saw so many sauria and live serpents! A lot of snakes, small ones, big ones, disgusting ones but hopefully all of them in boxes and a woman feeding them one by one! :) If you want to see anaconda, a python, a boa or just coral snakes this is your place! address:Ituzaingo 1420 TEL (0261) 4251393

Although I stayed there only 15’ I desperately looked for the Museo Fundacional to recover!

Saturday morning in Peatonal Sarmiento

by ChileAle

Mendoza is a city that still works as it should, with a nice downton area that has not been abandoned in favor of sub-urban sprawl. Best time to visit is on Saturday morinings when virtually everyone goes to sip a coffee, read the paper, or enjoy some live act on the pedestrian street Sarmiento. The best feel of a city-neighborhood, very lively, all the shops open and coffees packed of locals enjoying the greatness of their beatiful city in the open air.

Museo Histórico Gral. San Martín

by Bjorgvin

Museo Histórico Gral. San Martín;
Museo Histórico de los Gobernadores
In memory of one of the great liberators in the revolutions against Spanish rule in Argentina, Chile, and Peru, gen. José de San Martín, this museum is dedicated to the general history of Mendoza and its people and the revolution in which San Martín fought his way westward across the Andes (1817) and took Santiago Chile. He finally routed the Spanish royalist forces at the Battle of Maipú in 1818.
