From the U.S. many airlines now fly to Acapulco year-round. In general, most tourists will have pre-arranged their airport transportation with
their travel agent, or will be included in the hotel package.
Airport Location: 19 km/12 Miles SE of the City. By Taxi: US$20-25/35 mins to the beach area hotels. By Bus: Servicio Colectivo about every 10 mins
0700-last flight. ~US$5. Drops on request along the route. Look for their vehicle in front of the terminal. Transportes Terrestres runs a shuttle
service into the city at a cost of ~75 Pesos. Reservations for the trip back to the airport should be made at least a day in advance (462-1095 or 462-1172).
While in the city, there are many buses and taxi services one can take to get from place to
place, but most of the locals choose to walk to their destinations. However, an important mode of transportation is the government subsidized 'Colectivo'
cab system. These cabs cost 10 pesos per person to ride, but they are not private. The driver will pick up more passengers as long as seats are available,
and will transport them to their destination based on first come first serve rules. The colectivos each travel a designated area of the city, the three
main ones being Costera, Colosio, Coloso, or a mixture of the three. Coloso cabs mainly travel to old Acapulco. Colosio cabs travel through the majority
of the tourist area of Acapulco. Costera cabs drive up and down the coast of Acapulco, which is where the majority of the hotels for visitors are, but
also includes some of old Acapulco. Where a driver will take you is partly up to his choice. Some are willing to travel to the other designated areas,
especially during slow periods of the day. In addition, some destinations, such as the resorts of Acapulco Diamante, may cost an additional
10 pesos per person if one wishes to be dropped off at the door and not at the entrance to the resort complex (this is because the cabs do
not normally go there).
