Night busses from Santiago to Mendoza?

Hi, i will be traveling to Chile/Argentina in the first week of May, we would be flying in to Santiago and leaving out of BA, with a stop in Mendoza in between. We are considering different options for getting from one place to the other. We've decided on taking a night bus from mendoza to BA, and are now wondering wheather to take a bus a fly from Santiago to Mendoza... we were wondering if there were night busses that went between santiago and mendoza and which are the companies that do this... also if there aren't any, is the trip during the day a good idea? is the scenery worth it or is mostly a drag? Any thoughs/suggestions greatly appreciated!!

Thanks so much!

The scenery is wonderful. I wouldn't even consider a night bus. There are night buses if you must. Both Andesmar and Turbus have web sites.

Couldn't agree more (well... he's the local expert, isn't he?). Do you seriously think of crossing the Andes during the night? C'mon, don't miss the chance of seeing it!

Agree 100% with Toid and Dolape. My 'day' crossing of the Andes between Santiago & Mendoza was a highlight of my trip...absolutely spectacular scenery.
