Getting from Cordoba, Argentina to Quebrada del Condorito National Park
November 26, 2017 6:22 PM   Subscribe

My partner and I are planning a trip to Argentina in late December to early January. One of the main things we really want to do is visit Quebrada del Condorito National Park near Cordoba, Argentina for a day hike. We plan to stay somewhere in Cordoba and are trying to figure out how to get from point A (Cordoba) to point B (Quebrada del Condorito National Park), preferably via public transit. Details below.

We want to try and avoid driving in Argentina. It seems like a lot of people manage to get from Cordoba to Quebrada del Condorito National Park in Argentina via bus, but we're having a lot of trouble finding explicit details in English as to what bus to take, rates, etc.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If it's from the nearest town to a national park, there will be dedicated shuttle services available, you can bet on it. My strategy (which I used when I was traveling around Argentina a few years ago) would be in your scenario to A. find my lodging in Cordoba B. ask the owners of the hotel/hostel the easiest way to get from the hotel to the park. They're going to be helping people do that constantly, and will be able to both give you the info and possibly arrange everything (tickets, a timetable, estimate of cost) for you.

There's a 2015 review on tripadvisor that gives a lot of details about bus services to and from the main bus terminal. My Lonely Planet says that a minibus from the Mercado Sur minibus terminal would be quicker, but I can't find any timetable information online in either Spanish or English.

I found this...
CÓMO LLEGAR: Del parque se encuentra a 95 kilómetros de Córdoba capital, con dirección Mina Clavero. El ingreso está a la altura del Paraje La Pampilla, sobre la ruta de las Altas Cumbres. Además, por el camino circulan ómnibus regulares de las empresas Coata y Ersa (se pueden tomar en Córdoba capital, Villa Carlos Paz y Mina Clavero).

Which gets you this...

or this...

but a brief search on the second one doesn't return any results for a trip to La Quebrada, assuming that's the right stop.
It's quite easy to hire a driver in Argentina, ask at your hotel for a remis.
