Leaving airport for bus or taxi

I have read that you can walk a short distance from the airport to catch a cheaper taxi or a bus. I will be staying in Puerto Escondido and I don't want to spend an arm and a leg getting there. I've looked at the Google Street View of the HUX area. Do you catch the bus/taxi near the Pemex/Oxxo? Is the airport exit obvious? I don't want to be wandering aimlessly lol! I've searched and read as much as I can regarding this topic but any current info or helpful tips are more than welcome. Thanks!

It's pretty easy. When we did it for the first time last year we had no problem. Just exit the terminal and ask someone if you want to be sure, basically walk across a small section of the parking lot to the side walk that runs alongside of the road to the highway.

A taxi driver met us about 200 yards from the highway so we didn't really notice other taxis. You can walk to the Oxxo and grab a cold drink for the ride to PE.

I think it is pretty obvious where the exit is, just walk into the parking lot and you will see a lane leaving the airport. It is not that far of a walk, sidewalk on both sides. Usually always there is a cab waiting at the highway, I've never had to wait. The Pemex station and store is across from the airport exit, usually the taxi drives us across so we can get a cerveza.

Yup. There's a big thread on it that I had recently started. Though I will say we still got one at the airport but discounted once they saw we were walking to the street. Had no issue stopping at a store either with no added price.

Also, since you will be just arriving, they may pitch you and give you a business card in the hopes of getting more business. So, you should be able to get a deal either outside the airport or looking like you are making your way out of the airport.
