Air - All flights arrive at Juan Alvarez International Airport, about 25
minutes from the hotel strip. You can take a cab for about $25USD, or a bus for $8. The
main carriers servicing Acapulco are Aeromexico, Mexican, and Taesa.
Taxi - Taxis are available throughout the city. All are unmetered, so you
should set a price beforehand. Tipping is optional unless the cabbie helps you with your
luggage (give him about $1USD per bag). There are three kinds of cabs: the hotel cabs,
which are nicer and more expensive. The street cabs with lights on their roofs, and the VW
taxis, which are the cheapest and most abundant.
Notes on Transportation - On land, most visitors opt for rental cars or
taxis, but the city's public bus system is reliable. If your plans include cruising the
bay and nearby islands, there's an entire fleet of charter boats available.
Acapulco has five fine medical institutions: Magallanes Hospital, Pacifico Hospital,
