Getting Around Argentina
Given its size, most itineraries in Argentina include domestic flights that take several hours. Buenos Aires to Iguazú Falls takes 2 hours by plane (or 18 hours by bus for adventurous travelers with some time to spare), while the flight from Buenos Aires to El Calafate is 3 hours and 15 minutes.
Renting a car and setting off on a road trip is also a great way to explore Argentina. Most travelers stick to regions for their road trips, and fly between regions.
