San Juan ( UAQ ) does have an international flight, but only one and that is from Santiago de Chile. This means it is highly suggested to fly via Santiago Chile to San Juan as your boat will be transferred directly to San Juan. If flying via Buenos Aires, you will have to pick up your boat at the international terminal and travel via shuttle bus to the domestic terminal which might work with one boat, however if travelling with two boats or a team with more than one or two boats this shuttle will be extremely challenging. This means we suggest to fly via Santiago de Chile with
