Getting to Mendoza from Santiago?

We are looking into travel to Chile And BA. I just noticed Mendoza is close to Santiago. We are going to Santiago and was not sure the best way or what the costs are to/and from Mendoza from there.

We would love to see the Wine Country. Looks like some Wine Inns around the area. I see where a Sheraton is going into Mendoza for April. I see there is a Park Hyatt (BIG $$$$).

Thanks All

Hi! Santiago de Chile is about 400 kilometres west of Mendoza. The route between both cities is a scenic one, as it crosses the Andes mountain range. There's no matter in driving the distance yourself of taking a bus in April. The real problem is in winter, when the road is usually blocked due to the high amount of snow.

Mendoza is one of Argentina's most beautiful cities. The wine country is located in the area, in places such as San Martín, Maipú and Luján de Cuyo. You can also find other wineries a little souther, close to Tunuyán and San Rafael.

In Mendoza city, you have the Park Hyatt which is a beautiful hotel. You could also consider staying in some lodges along the wine country, which offer packages with accomodation and wine tasting.
