Getting there & around
Air Madagascar (88 813 22) has flights linking Antalaha several times weekly with Maroantsetra (€41) and Antananarivo (€99).
The airport is 12km north of town. Taxis between town and the airport charge a ridiculous Ar20, 000 per person, so you might want to catch a taxi-brousse from the main road by the airport turn-off, which is cheaper.
Cargo boats sail regularly between Antalaha and Maroantsetra, sometimes also stopping near Cap Est. There are no set schedules; inquire at the port about sailings. There are also cargo boats to other areas along the east coast, including Toamasina, Sambava and Iharana.
