Getting There & Away
To get to Maipú, catch the 10, 171, 172 or 173 bus from the bus stop on the corner of La Rioja and Catamarca in Mendoza and get off at the triangular roundabout. Or take the Metrotranvía from one of the stops along Belgrano in the Mendoza city center. A taxi should run around AR$75 to AR$100 – be sure to settle upon a fare in advance.
For Luján de Cuyo, a new hop-on, hop-off service, Bus Vitivinícola, stops at a handful of wineries in Luján del Cuyo (three different itineraries) and Valle de Uco; the latter route is available only on Sundays. Buses begin the day with pickups from a variety of hotels in Mendoza.
Other areas like Chacras de Coria and Luján de Cuyo are reachable by public bus; however, they are more conveniently accessible in a rental car.
