Traveling to Bariloche from Buenos Aires:

BY AIR: From Buenos Aires, most flights to Bariloche depart from the domestic flights airport Aeroparque (AEP), approximately 19 miles from the international flights airport Ezeiza (EZE). The trip might take anywhere from one to two and a half hours, depending on traffic. Fares can vary wildly, so it is important to know the right price range and negotiate in advance of the ride.

The best option is to get a ride through one of the companies that operate from booths inside the EZE airport. We recommend that you use Manuel Tienda Leon. Make sure that you SAVE YOUR RECEIPT AND SUBMIT IT FOR REIMBURSEMENT: we will reimburse up to US$30.00 (approximately 90 argentine pesos) for your ROUNDTRIP shuttle fare, or US$15 (45 argentine pesos) for one-way fare. Please note that you MUST provide an original receipt for reimbursement; we can not reimburse the expense without an original receipt.

BY BUS: There are numerous bus lines that serve Bariloche. Terminal de Autobus de Retiro is the main terminal for long-distance buses in Buenos Aires. For bus lines, schedules, ticket prices, and booking services on all bus lines operating from Retiro, see Omnilineas.

Travel Reimbursements:

If you have been awarded a travel scholarship, you will be reimbursed with a check in U.S. dollars at the end of the program. We must have ORIGINAL receipts before issuing your check. It is your responsibility to arrange and pay for your travel to Bariloche. Please e-mail electronic receipts to Lee Goodwin as soon as you have made your travel arrangements.

Ground transportation between airports in Buenos Aires will be reimbursed to all participants, after presentation of original receipts, regardless of whether a travel scholarship was awarded.
