  Airport Mariscal Sucre
by tejanasueca

Since the airport is in the middle of the city, it is not very far nor very expensive to go from the airport to Mariscal (the area with all the hostels). Essentially, you have two options: taxi or bus.

The cab ride from the airport to Mariscal will set you back NO MORE than $4.

You can also take the bus from the airport (10-15min, and only costs $0.25). Just go across the street, and look for one of the blue busses with a sign that says "Amazonas." Get off a couple of minutes after the bus passes the big circle with the big Marriot Hotel at one corner, and you will find yourself in Mariscal.

Type: Bus
