Hello! I am planning to go to Torres del Paine in November. We have already booked our tour and need to arrive in Puerto Natales by Thurs. Nov 8. We will be arriving in El Calafate airport around 2 pm (via Buenos Aires and originating from NYC).
Is there a bus that would take us directly from the airport to Puerto Natales on Wed. Nov 7? If so, how do we book or what is the schedule?
If not, where should we stay in town in El Calafate for one night to catch the bus Thursday morning? Since we will have a very long flight we would prefer somewhere comfy but doesn't need to be luxurious since we are leaving very early the next day!
Also, how much in US dollars should we exchange for pesos? Our TdP trek will be paid for so not sure what else we need cash for. We plan to use credit cards and pre book things when we can. We also plan to go to El Chalten and do a hike there and circle back to El Calafate. We will go to Mendoza at the very end of our trip so it's ok if we have some cash left over but would exchanging $200 US be enough?
Many thanks for advice/tips!
