Would appreciate any advice--
We are planning to leave El Chalten early Saturday morning via private transfer (hopefully before 6 am) to get down to see the Perito glacier. I understand you need about 2-3 hours for the glacier (boat ride and platform viewing?). After the glacier, we plan to head to Mendoza but there are only two flights available. One at 1:15 pm (50 min stopover in Cordoba) and arrive Mendoza by 630 pm. Or 2:15 pm, with a 3 hr stopover in BA (plus we have to transfer from EZE to AEP!), arrive like 10 pm.
Which flight would you recommend? Both are with Aerolineas Argentina and while I would prefer the shorter and cheaper flight at 1:15, I don’t want to rush at the glacier but not sure if we will have more than enough time. and I'm not sure if the layover in Cordoba is too short, although it's probably fine and a small airport?
Also, the 2:15 pm flight is so much longer and if it’s on the same ticket, do they transfer luggage even though we have to change airports? Or does it go all the way? Has anyone done a similar flight or has advice? Thank you!
