Lake Crossing- Start in Chile or in Argentina?

Am in the process of putting together a group to Chile and Argentina for next year, which will include stays in B. A. , Bariloche, and Santiago, plus some overnights during the Lake crossing. Is there an advantage to starting in Argentina rather than Chile, or doesn't it matter? I have us flying into B.A.and continuing on, but I just double-checked the airfare ,and it's cheaper to fly into Santiago and start our trip in Chile, it would seem. Just wondered if anyone out there had a preference as to which direction to go in,and why? Thanks in advance!

Mmmmh good question.

I think it doesn't really matter where will you begin, but maybe is good fpr you to know that the chilean side of the Lake Crossing is much nicer than the argentinian side.

But Bariloche is a much greater city then P. Varas in my opinion.

Better hotels, bars and a lot of things to do.
