After a whole week in Buenos Aires, it was time to move on … So we took a bus to Tucuman, in Argentina’s most traditional region in the Andean northwest. There we plan to stay one week before heading to the region of Mendoza, our last stop in South America.
We already have mentioned it: there are many classes of long distance bus travel in Argentina: Semi Cama, what we know in Europe or the USA; Cama, offering large and very comfortable seats and meal services and then the top, “Primera Classe”, “Suite Premium” or “Tutto Letto” service, depending on which company you are with …
Finally, we had a chance to cruise in one of the luxurious Suite Premium busses from FlechaBus. Well, that reminded us very much of a First Class trip by plane: you have a huge seat that fully reclines and turns into a comfortable bed. There is even a curtain that separates you from your neighbour to give you some privacy. And of course, there is an attendant serving you a three course meal with wine and “Champagne”. In this most comfortable environment, we were able to sleep almost the entire night, a really pleasant experience!
Of course, this luxury has a price: the bus ticket costs approx. half the price of a plane ticket.
