Transportation to Mendoza, Argentina
Mendoza is accessible through Buenos Aires, but many itineraries require a mad dash across the capital from the city’s Ministro Pistarini (Ezeiza) International Airport to the regional Jorge Newberry Aeropark to make a tight connection. The smarter option is to fly through Santiago, Chile, to Mendoza. From there, Cafayate and the wine region of Salta are a full day’s drive over a wide range of roads. You can catch a flight directly to Salta in Buenos Aires. Both regions are best visited from November through April, the Southern Hemisphere’s late spring to early fall.
