Please arrange your own transportation to and from the airport. We suggest allowing 20-30 minutes from your hotel to the airport. Please see below for recommended transportation options and approximate costs.

  • Taxi: Fares to and from the airport range from approximately $35 to $40 depending on traffic. As some taxis do not accept credit card payments, all passengers should notify the driver if they plan on using a credit card.

When you request a ride, Uber will find a driver, let you track their location on the map, and will text you when your ride arrives. Your driver’s name and car details appear in the app, and you can message or call if needed. Once you arrive at your destination, the fare is automatically charged to your credit card on file – no need to tip. Uber will also email you a receipt.

    • UberX (compact, cost-effective): $30 - $40
