AEP – Jorge Newbery Airport (domestic airport to/from Buenos Aires)
CPC – San Martin de los Andes Chapelco Airport (2 hours from the estancia)
NQN – Presidente Perón International Airport (4 hours from estancia)
BRC – San Carlos De Bariloche Airport (5 hours from the estancia)
Transferring to the Estancia
We would be more than happy to arrange a transfer for you to Caballadas from your arrival airport in the region (additional fee).
It is also possible to rent a 4WD car or truck and enjoy the drive on your own, watching the landscape change as you ascend higher in to the mountains of Patagonia.
Passports and Visas
To enter Argentina, a valid passport is required. The passport must be valid for at least six months beyond the date of departure from Argentina, and must have at least one page available for entry stamp.
USA and EU citizens do not require a visa to enter the country for visits of up to 90 days.
Citizens of Canada and Australia (and other countries that charge Argentine citizens for a visa or entry fee) are required to pay a reciprocal fee, equal to the amount that those countries charge Argentine residents. The current fees are: $100USD for Australians (valid for 1 year), and $72USD for Canadians (valid for multiple entries until one month prior to the expiry of your passport). This fee schedule was originally put into effect April 16, 2012. The Canadian fee and duration were amended February 8, 2016.
Note that as of late 2012, this entry fee MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE. This fee is payable payable on the Argentine Migration website. Here you can register, pay the reciprocal fee with your credit card, and print out a receipt. You must bring this receipt with you when you enter the country to prove payment. Travellers who have not paid the required reciprocity fee prior to arrival at an Argentine port of entry may be sent back to their port of embarcation.
As of March 24, 2016, citizens of the USA are no longer required to pay a reciprocity fee.
We strongly suggest that you check with your appropriate State Department, consulate, or embassy before traveling to Argentina, as these policies are subject to change.
