Just two hours from Buenos Aires, the “Aeropuerto Aviador Carlos Campos” known as “Chapelco airport” receives flights during the season and even charters programmed by tour operators from all over the country. This offers the possibility of making the most of your travel days, including weekend “getaways”.
