POP Airport is the 4th busiest in the country, seeing over 800,000 passengers annually. The airport is located around 20 km from the city centre, so taking a Puerto Playa Airport shuttle shouldn’t take longer than 35 minutes to reach your hotel.

Once you see the Ferretería L&R on your left, your driver will take a left turn and then a right at the Taller de Herrería Victor. You will follow this road for 2.4 km, before turning right onto a roundabout, where you will take the 1st exit onto Calle Principal. At Casa de la Cultura Montellano, you will take a left, then almost immediately take another left. At the De Chino SuperFría, you will take a right and a left to continue onto Av. Circunvalación Sur.
