Catching a bus from Tuxtla airport to San Cristobal

Hi all,

I've had a quick look of the ticket bus website and, while there seem to be plenty of busses going from Tuxtla to San.C, I couldn't find any info on where the bus terminal is located so I'm not sure how much time to allow after landing.

I land at 8:06 in the morning on a Sunday. Is the bus terminal very close to the airport and, do all bus companies depart from the same area?

Was just about to book a 9:40 bus but thought I'd better check how realistic that is first.

My son's flight was at 8:30. He went by taxi leaving San Cristobal at 6, he said it took a little over an hour, not sure exactly.

He said the airport was "dead", nobody there when he arrived, so plenty of time. He did the taxi (just over $40) rather than the bus and got an extra 90 minutes sleep.

Hi everyone,

By any chance does anybody know how much a taxi charges from Tuxtla´s airport to SanCris? My mom and I will be arriving at 12:35 and I doubt that we will have time enough to catch the 1 pm bus.

Thanks!

$50 US or $600 MXN seems to be the going rate.

Thank you Peter!

I just called OCC and the schedules still are 9 am, 1 pm, 4 pm and 8:30 pm, and it costs 176.00 pesos (about 14 US), although they told me that during the high season (July-Aug), the times and prices change.

Hope this info is useful.

Yes there are sprinters that go to the airport.

I believe that it's the OCC bus station you're after. Unfortunately I'm not able to help with the transport from the airport to the OCC bus station BUT, there is a regular bus service which goes to San Cristobal de las Casas in a 55 minute journey time from Tuxtla so don't you worry about that.

You're arriving in Tuxtla in the morning which does help so there's no need to get stressed about it :-)
