Transportion to the Pueblos

There is a wide variety of travel options to the pueblos:

Taxis that run about $10.00 per hour. Many small hotels and B&Bs can call one for you. If you flag down a taxi in the street, be sure to agree on a price in advance. Drivers will take up to four passengers.

“Taxi colectivo” (communal taxi) departing from the Mercado de Abastos (juncture of Periférico and Avenida Central) cost a few pesos. Signs indicate the pueblo to which each taxi is heading. A taxi leaves once it is filled with five passengers. Note: if you use this form of transportation, some walking will be necessary upon arrival.

Second-class buses. This method – the one used by many local residents – is extremely inexpensive, picturesque (people are laden with market purchases and wares) and time-consuming (due to many stops). Again, check with your hotel or B&B for departure locations.

Private drivers with their own vehicles range from $15 for a compact car to $25 for a larger vehicle that can comfortably accommodate six passengers.
