Naples Municipal Airport in Florida bills itself as “the best little airport in the world,” and when your cheap flight to Naples lands there, you may agree. Despite its small size, there is a U.S. customs office open there so that international travelers need not land elsewhere to get to Naples sandy beaches. It is located minutes from the heart of the city, so getting to your hotel is not difficult. There are eight taxi companies and seven rental car companies that operate out of the airport.
The best way to get around Naples is to drive a car. The traffic is not terrible, and you’ll have the freedom to go where you want to go when you want to go. After your flight to Naples lands and you have collected your baggage, you can rent a car right in the terminal. Still, not everyone drives. Naples does have a new bus system and it is a fairly cheap way to get around, but it does not operate on Sundays. Naples also has a trolley tour you can take for about $30 a person, but you can hop on and off all day, and it will take you to all the main attractions.
Naples’ main claim to fame is the beauty of its nature and its beaches. Barefoot Beach has been called Naples' best. And how can anyone resist visiting a place called the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary? This is an 11,000-acre wetland preserve that is home to many animals, including alligators and bears. Go to the Naples Pier and watch dolphins play in the ocean. For a change of pace, visit SpaTerre at the LaPlaya Beach and Golf resort. Paddle Fitness LLC rents paddle boats for an invigorating day on the water. The Collier County Museum and the Naples Art Museum feed the mind.
