Transportation from Acapulco AirportI am planning a trip to Actapulco in early or mid February, flying out of Guadalajara. The only issue I have is the sheer distance between Acapulco airport out to the headland of traditional Acapulco where I will be staying. According to Google Maps it is around 34 kilometers.
According to some online travel agencies, I can book a shuttle from Acapulco and back to the airport, but it will cost 1,248 pesos or around $97! There must be a better way. I believe that I saw some mention on Tripadvisor about some collectivos that leave from the airport that are much cheaper, but I wanted to get some advice from someone here at Lonely Planet who has recent experience traveling to Acapulco. Thanks.

2There are a whole bunch of vans outside the airport waiting to deliver people to hotels in Diamante and as far as the big hotels on Hornos beach. If you want to go further like the zocalo you'll have to grab a local cab from Hornos for probably no more than 35 pesos.
As Queretaro suggests, you'll probably have to get a cab for the return trip.

3Collectivo for 100 pesos purchased at the same stand as Taxi ticket. They will try to talk you into a regular cab. Just smile & say No Gracias insisting on Collectivo. Mine took me to my hotel but at the least they will take you to El Cenral & a much cheaper cab from there.
