    HOW TO GET FROM PUERTO ESCONDIDO AIRPORT TO DOWNTOWN

    Taxi from the airport:
    Traveling in the private taxis of the Oaxaca airport is, without a doubt, the most comfortable and fastest option there is to transport from one place to another, especially if you load with enough luggage or you arrived very tired of your trip. If you decide to do so, we warn you that this is the most expensive option. Check at the box office for options.

    Transport applications:
    This is certainly not an option since you should know that there is no Uber in Oaxaca or any other transportation service that functions with apps, such as Cabify, Didi, Lyft or Beat. If what you want is to find a cheaper alternative than an airport taxi check the following options:

    Shuttle bus o transfer
    The collective service of the airport is one of the most economical options. Check directly at the ticket offices what route they will take.
