  • Strategically Located

    Located 105-km (65-miles) from Mendoza, the small town of Uspallata is almost exactly half-way to the Chilean border, deep in the Andes mountains. The population of 3500 people make their living supporting various outdoor activities and providing amenities to passengers on the Pan-American Highway as it passes through town.Since this is the last...

  • Buse companies going to and from Mendoza

    Here's a bit of insight on 2 bus companies operating from Mendoza: TAC and AndesmarTAC is a little cheaper than Andesmar. It is also the lower end of the scale. 'Entertainment' wise, unless you want to spend a very quiet night (no reading or movies), go with Andesmar. The TAC bus I took did not have one reading light nor television working....

  • The pass to Chile

    About 3 hours outside of Mendoza city, and at about 2,700m, you can cross the historical border into Chile by going through the 3km long tunnel (built in the 1980s). The traffic through the tunnel is always intense, it is filled with trucks, tourbuses, and private cars. However, during the winter, there is the possibility that the tunnel will be...

  • A Mini-Bus Into the Mountains

    One of the two tours included in our 4-day package air/hotel/tours deal for the Mendoza area included an all-day excursion to the high Andes. I arranged the overall tour package from Canada by internet/email with Ripio Turismo and they made the local arrangements with Huentata Touristico.We had a nice-sized airconditioned Mercedes-Benz minibus,...

  • The Direct Route

    The Mendoza River valley cuts a path in the Andes that results in some very steep faces as the mountains rise up on either side. Both Highway 7 toward Santiago, Chile (part of the Pan-American Highway) and the now abandoned Transandean railroad (1910-82) have had to make their way along this route as best they can.The highway has about 13 short...

  • How to reach Las Lenas

    There are 4 ways to arrive in Las Lenas:1. Take a plane to San Rafael and then a shuttle to travel the 215 kms (135 miles) to Las Lenas. On your last ski day, you'd better leave Las Lenas late afternoon back to San Rafael and take the morning flight next day. I recommend this option if you wish to stay less than a week.2. Buy a skiweek...

    When travelling from Mendoza to Santiago, I reserved a seat on a CATA bus making sure I would get a front seat on the second floor of the bus for the view. When I showed up at the bus terminal, I was told there were no bus leaving at that hour and offered a side seat on the first floor of the bus. CATA totally refused to take responsibility for this and to compensate me for the error of their system even though they did recognize that it was their error. I strongly recommend NOT TO USE CATA as they are not only unreliable, but they have no customer service orientation. All they want is your money, and once you have paid they don't care about your experience. For them, traveling is only about destination, not about journey...
