How to get around within Argentina

Most people either go on bus trips or plane rides to go around Argentina. Buses are as comfortable as it can get, but are very expensive as compared to Chile and Brazil. Rides can take more than 24 hours depending on the distance, and rates can easily reach US $300 per ride. Plane rides, meanwhile, are cheaper for locals than for tourists. More economical and legal ways to travel around are through trains, but if not prepared to share 24-26-hour rides in a rather uncomfortable position, then prepare to spend more on a bus ticket. Moreover, cars can easily be rented throughout Argentina. However, it is a bit expensive as compared with other forms of transport. Hitchhiking is also legal and is popular with the younger generation here, and it is easier to hitchhike if you're a woman.
