Acapulco, Mexico: Transportation

Acapulco’s Juan Álvarez International Airport, is a small but busy one. Most international flights connect through Mexico City and Guadalajara. Upon booking, Acapulco Airport Roundtrip Transfers offer a professional bilingual friendly staff, which will transfer arrivals from the airport to their hotel. They give general information about the city and can assist in arranging return journeys.

Getting from one place to another in the city is easily done using any of the many bus and taxi companies available. There is also a very cheap government subsidized 'Colectivo' cab system. They cost 13 pesos for each person per ride, and the driver may pick up more passengers as long as seats are available, but will transport travelers based on the “first come first serve” rule. Buses, however, remain the cheapest form of transport, apart from walking. High class buses, with air conditioning, are also available. There are special kinds of buses for tourists, noticeable by their yellow color and with Acapulco painted on the side. These buses have routes up and down the coast, through the tourist sections of the city.

Acapulco is also a stopping point, and one of the embarkation ports for the Ocean Star Cruise Mexican cruise liners.
