Bus transportation al las Americas
15.01.2007 - 15.01.2007 27 °C
So we´re now ready to head off... where ???
Hmm.... We´ve agreed to travel up to Iguazu (while we´re on the East coast of Argentina) and then we´re going to travel back down south heading towards ushuaia (ready to pick up the boat on the 28th)
To get anywhere in Argentina... you either fly (exensive) or you can get an overnight bus (less expensive)
So we´re getting the overnight bus from Buenos Aires to Iguiazu (some 17hours on a bus!)
Lubkily over here though it´s not like jumping on a Greyhound or a National Express bus and they offer different classes of seat.
Semi-Cama, Cama and Cama Superior!
Cama is Castellano for bed... so you should be able to work it out for yourselves what sort of seats each is.
We´re going Cama class as the journey´s so long!
costs are $160 one way each which works out about 26 pounds sterling (which I´m assured is far more expensive than it was about two or three years ago!) Obviously the bus companies have cottened onto the fact that all these gringo´s visiting south America can afford the extra costs.. seems a pity for the locals though!
Anyway, so we´ve got our tickets purchased already. We´ve packed up and we know how to get to Retiro (buenos Aires bus Station)
Now all we´ve got to do is make sure we don´t get scammed before we get to our hostel tomorrow morning!
