Getting To Rio Manso
Most travel to Rio Manso Lodge starts with an international flight to Buenos Aires. Many major airlines fly into Argentina’s capital city. From North America, Delta, United and American all offer regular flights.
Once you arrive at Ezeiza (EZE), the international airport, you will likely have to transfer to the domestic airport, Jorge Newbury (AEP), to continue your journey. Although there are some direct flights to Bariloche, they rarely coordinate with the international arrival times. Many guests take this opportunity to spend a day or two in Buenos Aires, a beautiful city known as the “Paris of the South”.
Should you decide to continue directly to the lodge, there are multiple flights daily from Buenos Aires to Bariloche (BRC), the airport closest to Rio Manso Lodge. Bariloche is perhaps the best served airport in Patagonia with a dozen or more flights each day from the capitol.
Be sure to allow at least 4 hours between arrival at EZE and departure from AEP to allow for clearing customs, transferring between airports, and checking in for your domestic flight. Aerolineas Argentinas and JETsmart both fly to Bariloche. A Rio Manso Lodge representative will meet you at the airport for the 1 ½ hour drive to the lodge.
At Rio Manso Lodge, our top-notch professional guides and staff do their absolute best to protect you from the risks inherent in any outdoor activity. But as we all know, participating in fishing, hiking, rafting, horseback riding and other Rio Manso Lodge activities presents risks, including but not limited to, the risk of personal injury, death and damage or loss of personal property. Such risks include, but are not limited to, the following:
Fishing and/or wading in or around lakes, ponds, reservoirs or other bodies of water; boarding and un-boarding of watercrafts; natural hazards including, but not limited to lightning storms and other adverse weather conditions; domestic or wild animals; fire; travel either on foot or in a vehicle in unfamiliar terrain or over fences and other structures; artificial and natural obstructions and/or unimproved roads; becoming lost or disoriented; the consumption of provisioned or other food and beverages.
You should realize that during your lodge activity there may not be search, rescue, medical facilities or the expertise necessary to deal with any risks to which you may be exposed. Be aware that fishing and other lodge activities are physical activities involving potentially extreme physical exertion and may not be suitable for everyone.
