Q: What is the best way to get from the airport to Rukhsana's Retreat?
Here is some information on different ways you can get to our place:
There are lots of taxis at the airport to choose from and they will run you about $80-$90usd
You can also hire a private car to bring you. We recommend using Eilker Transfer, most of our guests use them.
You will need to walk over to Terminal 1 (about a 10 minute walk) to catch the bus (they do drop off people at Terminal 2, the international terminal which you will arrive at, and depending on the driver they may let you board but it’s not guaranteed). The buses are called Ruta del Desierto and are purple and yellow. You will need to go into the Terminal 1 arrivals area to purchase your ticket from the Ecobajatours location. For more information about the bus please click here. You would get off at the stop across the highway from the Grand Velas hotel and then walk up El Tule hill to our location.
*UBER is not allowed to pick up from the airport but can drop off.
