Mendoza to Santiago by Bus
Fun fact, when I was telling that I was excited about a 6 hours long bus trip, the guy in the reception was laughing of me. Truth is I was really excited, I couldn’t care less that he was laughing. He actually advised me to go for the night bus, because it is not much to see. Well, we have different views of perspectives. I want to cross the Andes by daylight and see the beautiful scenery.
Sometime I just really love a good bus trip. You put on some music, you know that you can relax for the next hours, nowhere else to go. I like to call it forced down-time. Time to think and just do nothing. Just look out of the window and enjoy the ride. I have to say crossing the Andes from Mendoza to Santiago has to be one of the most scenic view I had for a very long time with the Andes Mountains as the scenery. Really appreciate the whole bus trip from start to end.
I booked my tickets with Andesmar, cost me 380 pesos (2015). I did that they before I left, off-season.
It´s a Great day to cross the Andes with Bus
