How to Get To Villa General
have to fly to Cordoba's airport (COR). As far as I know, there are
three ways to get to there:
+ Through Santiago (Chile)
Carriers: You can fly to Santiago de Chile with either
Lanchile (www.lanchile.com) or American Airlines (www.aa.com). If you
use an american carrier (e.g. because of grant restrictions) and still
fly through Lanchile, you might be able to buy the ticket through
Airlines, as they are partners (even if you do not care about this, and
the ticket from American Airlines, the carrier might be Lanchile and
viceversa). From Santiago de Chile to Cordoba you can only fly through
Lanchile, the flight takes approximately one hour and a half.
Pros: you don't need to change airport in order to get to Cordoba, the
connections in Santiago are quite good, the airport is comfortable.
Lanchile or American Airline's service and customer support are usually
Tips: if in Chile, try a Pisco Sour.
+ Through Sao Paulo (Brazil)
Carriers: there are probably many carriers that fly to Sao Paulo (United
Airlines for sure). However, from Sao Paulo to Cordoba you can only fly
through Varig (www.varig.com). If you take a direct flight from Sao
Cordoba (that is, not through Paraguay, for example), it takes around 4
to get there.
Cons: Some people do not like Sao Paulo's airport, and some people
Varig's service and customer support.
+ Through Buenos Aires (Argentina)
Carriers: there are several companies flying to Buenos Aires. From
need to change airport (from Ezeiza international's airport to
airport), unless your international
flight is with Aerolineas Argentinas (www.aerolineas.com.ar). That is,
only company that flies from Ezeiza to Cordoba is Aerolineas Argentinas
will only sell you a ticket if you are flying to Ezeiza with them
me why this is so). Independtly of which airport you use, flying from
Aires to Cordoba takes an hour.
Pros: you might want to stay in Buenos Aires for some time on your way
from Cordoba. In which case it makes sense to fly through Buenos Aires.
Cons: You have to change airport.
Tips: If you stay in Buenos Aires, you might want to go to San Telmo
out the local culture. You might also
want to go to the Puerto Maderos area for diner or a drink by the river.
When changing airports, use either a remis or a shuttle service that
you pay for in the
airport itself (there are several shuttle services of this type in
Ezeiza and Aeroparque, a well
known one is Manuel Tienda Leon), *don't* take a taxi outside the
(there are big changes that you might be overcharged, etc). Similarly,
if you stay in
Buenos Aires, ask your hotel front desk to get you a remis or taxi by
and get the front desk to ask the company
for a rough estimate of how much you are going to pay.
