From Manz. airport to Melaque?

Is there a bus from Manzanillo airport to Melaque/Barra de Navidad? Thinking of going there next winter and prefer buses to taxis. We did take a bus from the bus stn. in Manzanillo but it's out of the way by a lot to do that from the airport and then get a bus back towards Melaque.

Is there a collectivo or if a taxi is the only way, about how much does it cost in pesos?

No. There are no public buses between ZLO and Barra or Melaque. The closest buses would be out on the highway which is about 5 km from the terminal. A taxi to the highway will cost you almost as much as a taxi the whole way.

At peak times the airport taxi service do run the suburban taxi's as collectivos however, on occasions in the past they have insisted that people form their own collective groups - or alternatively - all be going to the same hotel or specific destination. At other times they have just piled people into the suburbans and dropped them off where ever they were going within Barra and Melaque. Having gone to the airport a lot to meet flights I observed over the years that how busy it is seems to affect how they operate that service. When it is busy they are more inclined to pile people in and drop them where ever they want to go.

The prices have been posted in other posts and I am sure someone will chime in with prices more current than what I have. One thing to note, if there is to be a price change it will normally occur in November or December prior to the coming winter season.
