Want Airport Transportation in Cabo

When traveling to Cabo you will need ground transportation from the airport to your hotel.  Be sure to prebook at least 24 hours before arrival.

If you decide to cancel your trip to Cabo, notify your transportation company at least 48 hours before arrival to request a refund.

 All transfer companies will be OUTSIDE the terminal waiting for you with a sign for their company or your family name (private.)  Do not stop to talk with anyone in the terminal who says he represents your transfer company.  He does not; he is a timeshare salesman. Sometimes the timeshare agents will call out the name of your transportation company, trying to make you think they are part of the company; simply ignore them and continue walking to a legitimate transportation operator

As with everything in Mexico, negotiate the price among 2-3 vendors, and make sure the operators know you are doing your homework. The prices given here are the ones quoted on the websites.

Private transportation is usually a Chevy Suburban or large van; shared transportation is usually a 9 passenger van.  Private transportation can usually take 4 – 8 (sometimes 10-11) people for one price; ask! 

Tip is not included.  It is appropriate to tip any driver who goes out of his way to help you.

 If you want to make a shopping stop on the way to your resort in your private transfer, arrange this in advance. The charge for waiting should be in the $20-$40 range. Mega, Costco, and Walmart are on the main highway. 

Check to be sure that your selected transfer company is allowed to provide transportation back to the airport; if you book round trip be sure to call them the day before you leave to confirm your reservation.  Some resorts have an agreement with the taxi group that allow only taxis to leave their property. Take caution with return trip "taxi vouchers" from your vendor. Negotiate directly with the van drivers (there are many) for a competitive rate back to the airport. Shared transportation will be in a taxi van either way.

And, above all, enjoy your stay in sunny Cabo.
