The Redbus goes along the wide downtown streets, around its old tree groves and traditional buildings and becomes immersed in the daily hustle and bustle of its denizens.
The best proposal to catch a first glimpse of San Martín de los Andes is to make ourselves comfortable on board a collection bus: the Redbus. It normally shows off its red color at the main square and on the ride that connects visitors with the lifestyle of the locals.
Made in England, this double-decker Routemaster bus features a Leyland 0600 engine. It was part of the Buenos Aires Automobile Museum and for several years it has been showing off its lineage around the urban grid. A first typical detail: we got on through the back door, as people used to in former days in London.
We found our seats on the top deck to have a better view of the landscape. A guide gave us some details about the history and geography of this place. Then, we gradually discovered what the ride would show us.
Level of Difficulty: low
Duration: 1 and a half hour approximately
Timetables: Outings year round at different times, depending on the season.
Recommendations: The bus is parked at San Martín Square, right opposite Banco de la Nación Argentina.
