Getting to Acapulco by Air  
Traveling to Acapulco by Air

Acapulco's Juan N. Alvarez International Airport (ACA) is well connected domestically and internationally with year round flights from Dallas, Houston. Nonstop flights to and from other cities in the US are available during the holiday periods. Flights from Mexico City to Acapulco take approximately 35 minutes and ground transportation from the airport to the major tourist area of La Costera takes more or less the same time. Round trip fares depending on the season and class, range from USD$230.00 to USD$500.00. If departing from Mexico City, it is also worth considering low cost carrier flights from Toluca (TLC).

Getting Around in Acapulco
By Taxi
Taxis are everywhere in Acapulco. Since they are unmetered, make sure that you agree on a fare before entering. You should not have to pay more than $50 pesos per cab ride within the Costera area but fares can reach as much as $120 pesos for rides from La Costera to La Quebrada, Princess Hotel (Revolcadero Beach) and the airport. Alternatively most hotels can arrange for taxi transportation for a fixed fare. Prices will usually be about 50% more expensive than for a taxi hailed on the street.

By Bus
There are several public transportation options: Yellow cabs are 10 pesos per person; buses are 4 pesos or 5 pesos with the luxury of air-conditioning. Because of the sheer amount of taxis here, when one is dining out it is often worthwhile for them to offer a round trip and simply wait around while you have your meal, and they will not charge extra.
