Bus

Córdoba’s bus terminal is about a 15-minute walk from downtown.

In the new terminal (across the road, accessed by tunnel), several bus companies offer services to the same destinations as those offered at the minibus terminal. Be aware that services leaving from the minibus terminal stop everywhere, often adding an hour to the journey time.

Several companies offer service to Chilean destinations, including Santiago (AR$1880, 18 hours), although some involve changing buses in Mendoza.

Minibus

Frequent minibuses leave from Mercado Sud minibus terminal. Most go direct, while some stop at every little town along the way. It’s worth asking, as this can make an hour's difference to your travel time.

In summer there may be direct buses to La Cumbrecita, but it will probably be quicker to go first to Villa General Belgrano.
