Getting There & Away

Parque Nacional Lihué Calel is 228km southwest of Santa Rosa, and there are no direct buses to the park. Long-distance buses leaving Santa Rosa, and for Neuquén or Bariloche, pass by the entrance; if you arrange ahead of time with the driver, it shouldn't be a problem to get dropped off here (though getting picked up again would be trickier). But generally speaking, driving yourself – you can rent a car in Santa Rosa – is the best way to visit the park.
