AIRPORT LOGISTICS that are easy on the wallet

Shuttle to Your Door


These shuttles wait until they are roughly full and then drop each person off at their exact destinations one at a time.

This can take 30-60 minutes total but will only cost $4-7 and operates until the last flight lands.

Colectivos at Gate

Taxis aren’t allowed to pick-up at the airport. During the day, a few colectivos will sit outside the airport gate entrance waiting for returning locals willing to walk to them.

They charge roughly 150 pesos or about $7.50. It is safe and legal, but never guaranteed to be available.

For those that want to take all the stress, guessing, and research out of detailing your itinerary…
