bus grupo plaza review
I decided to take Grupo Plaza to Pinamar. Tickets were +- 205 pesos and you can check prices and availability on Plataforma10. Travel time was 5 hours and the bus departed on time.
The ride was very comfortable and like most long distance buses in Argentina equipped with a DVD to watch movies. We also got served a small box with snacks and a bottle of water.
It is a beautiful and scenic route to Pinamar and many farms can be seen along the way. Coming from the Cordoba province with many mountains and hills, I was surprised to see such a flat piece of land.
Grupo Plaza departs from Retiro in Buenos Aires and makes two stops in the city before it leaves on the highway for Pinamar. The highway is new and the roads in a very good condition.
I can recommend Grupo Plaza Empresa to any traveller who wants to travel to Pinamar or Villa Gesel. Interesting to note when I planned my trip to Pinamar I was reading about a train service that runs there. I couldn`t find concrete information and decided to sent a message to the train company in Argentina. They responded quickly and informed me that the train is no longer running to Pinamar. It is a pity that the train is not operating anymore.
