Shared & Private Round Trip transportation to & from the SJD airport and Cabo San Lucas (Medano Beach hotels in Cabo ... not other destinations!)  

-  -  -  ☼  ZONE 3  ☼  -  -  -


·     Note: it is less expensive to the Tourist Corridor (Zone 2) or to San Jose Del Cabo (Zone 1).  Check prices on each company's website.

·     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 the warm Cabo air outside.

·     Companies are listed in alphabetical order.

·     Prices updated as of August, 2014; subject to change.  Although they are listed in USD, you can work out the appropriate payment with your chosen company.

·       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 competetive rate back to the airport. Shared transportation will be in a taxi van either way.

SuburCabos bus.  As you walk out the airport, turn left and walk about 5-7 minutes through a parking lot and along the main airport road.  Follow the road as it curves right and you will see a desert landscaped area with rocks, dirt and cactus.  Look in this area for a large indention in the road, large enough for a bus to pull over.  This bus looks like a school bus and is usually white with a green and orange stripe.  Pay the attendant 32 pesos.  This bus will stop many times through San Jose del Cabo and on to Cabo San Lucas.  The bus will not automatcally stop at the Puerto Paraiso Mall which is the only stop for Cabo San Lucas hotels.  Make sure you hit the stop button located near the back door of the bus as soon as you see the mall.  If you miss that stop, the bus will make a 30 minute loop and return to the mall. Expect the ride to take about 90 minutes. Note that return busses usually say “Aeropuerto” on the windshield.  Allow two hours for the return trip. 

Ruta del Desierto Bus.   70 pesos
