Getting to Puerto
Puerto Escondido airport (PXM)
Puerto Escondido Airport is located 5 minutes from the Villas off Coastal Highway 200 just west of the central part of town. Unfortunately we cannot offer guests a shuttle service to or from the airport, but airport taxis are plentiful and will be available upon your arrival. All the shuttles are familiar with Villas Carrizalillo and will bring you here for a set price of 35 pesos per person.
Huatulco airport (HUX)
Another option for air travelers is the Hualtulco Airport which is about 1.5 hours east of Puerto by taxi. Hualtulco is a much more developed tourist town and recieves more daily flights from Mexico city. The Villas are happy to arrange for transportation to and from the Hautulco airport, the cost ranges anywhere from $60 US to $120 US depending on the number of people, season, etc.. Please contact us here via email or phone for a current qoute on airport transportation to and from Huatulco. Taking a bus from the Hautulco Airport is another alternative, the cost is around $6 US per person and takes around 2 hours
Unfortunately there are no direct flights into Puerto at this time. All international flights must first go through Mexico City or Oaxaca City.
From México City
From Mexico Ctiy there is only one international airline that services Puerto Escondido, Continental Air, www.continental.com. With the demise of Mexicana Airlines, Aeromar Airlines has tried to take their place and have teamed with Continental to offer competitive international fares and now it is no longer necessary to fly into Huatulco. There are now two national airlines giving service to Puerto Escondido from Mexico city. Aeromar is one but quite pricey from Mexico City, however they do offer daily flights. The other that has recently announced service to Puerto from Mexico City is Vivaaerobus, www.vivaaerobus.com. You can easliy make reservations from their website and they often have huge discounts in their fares but at this time fly only on Thursdays and Sundays. Perfect for a weekend getaway OR a weekday getaway!
