A majority of travellers arrive in Argentina via flights despite the fact that air travel is quite expensive in Argentina as compared to other South American countries. The capital Buenos Aires' airport Ezeiza is the most prominent air hub with direct flights connecting it to many cities in North and South America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The major airline carriers operating on these routes include LATAM Airlines and AerolÍneas Argentina's. Many direct flights operate daily from the USA, and many people prefer getting in the country via the US. Other points of entry in the country are via the international airports of Mendoza and Cordoba.
After air travel, getting into the country by bus is the second most preferred option. One can avail the facilities of many comfortable long distance bus services from most of the neighbouring countries. International buses connect Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile and Bolivia to Retiro bus station in Buenos Aires. However, if you are planning to reach Argentina via a bus, make sure that your reservations are made several days in advance.
Regular ferry services are available from the cities of Montevideo and Colonia in Uruguay to Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires. For those coming in from Carmelo and Nueva Palmira in Uruguay can take a ferry to Tigre, located north of BA. A rather unique mode of transport is a freighter service offered by Grimaldi Freighters from a few European cities such as London and Hamburg.
