Puebla

Getting around

Most hotels and places of interest are within walking distance of Puebla’s zócalo. From the CAPU bus station, take a taxi to the city center (flat rate M$50) – buy a ticket from the kiosk but beware of overpriced touts and take an official cab from the dispatch office. Alternatively, exit the station at the ‘Autobuses Urbanos’ sign and go up a ramp leading to the bridge over Blvd Norte. Once across the bridge, walk west (toward VIPS coffee shop) and stop in front of the Chedraui supermarket. From there, catch combi 40 to Av 16 de Septiembre, four blocks south of the zócalo. The ride takes 15 to 20 minutes.

From the city center to the bus station, catch any northbound ‘CAPU’ colectivo from Blvd 5 de Mayo at Av Palafox y Mendoza, three blocks east of the zócalo, or from the corner of Calle 9 Sur and Av Reforma. All city buses and colectivos cost M$5.
