Bus from Santiago to Buenos Aires

Hi there,

I am looking to catch a bus from Santiago to Buenos Aires in June 2014. Having a look online, the CATA bus through Mendoza seems like the best option, but I am having issues navigating their site and getting details...

Has anyone caught this bus? Any ideas on costs? From the site it looks like the bus isn't running at the moment??

Help would be appreciated!

Pretty much I am wanting to go to the World Cup in Brazil from Australia and am trying to do it on the cheap! Looking at flights, it seems as though the best route would be either Sydney to Santiago, or Sydney to LAX and then LAX to Santiago...

Look forward to hearing people's experiences...

I think the issue is that you cannot book buses online until the middle of the month before. wait until then, you won't have any problems. The pass can be closed for several days in the winter, so book in lots of flexibility.

I wouldn't even book ahead. Just grab a bus to Mendoza when you know the pass is open, then find another going to BA once you arrive. There are lots of departures.
