Getting Around

After flying to Huatulco and arriving in paradise, the taxi has to be the easiest and most cost effective way to get around. There are so many taxis that you don’t have to worry about going to a taxi stand. Simply standing at the side of the road where you are and waiving for a taxi should be sufficient…and you won’t have to wait long. All taxi rates are set in advance based on distance and most local trips should cost you anywhere between $20-$50 pesos. Once you start to stray outside the immediate town expect to barter with your driver on the cost to take you to a destination.

Rental Car Locations

There are really multiple levels of buses along the entire coastline but the one that most people will be interested in are the trans-regional buses. The Ado station in Huatulco is the launching point for your journeys to the east or west of Huatulco. These buses are usually very clean with comfortable seats and are consistent with what we would have in Canada or the United States. The fees are very reasonable, and if you don’t mind a couple of extra stops before you reach your ultimte destination, then this is a great way to do it on the cheap. A bus from Huatulco to Puerto Escondido will set you back about $80 pesos.
