taxi firm for transfer to Puebla from Benito Juarez airport?Hi
Can anyone recommend a taxi firm or accommodation that does transfers to get from Benito Juarez airport to Puebla? I know the buses are easy but 3 of us are arriving on an evening flight from the UK and I want to investigate if it's financially viable to head straight to Puebla the night we arrive without the 'stress' of making a connection to a bus

If we were arriving during the day I wouldn't think twice about the bus, it's just that we are arriving at night and I've heard it can take a while to get through immigration and then having to wait for a bus and get to our accommodation at the other end as seems bit much after the flight when a taxi could go door to door.
But in all my surfing the forums I can't find any mention if people doing this, I think it's cos Mexican buses are famous for being so good :-)
Thanks for your help

3Buses are 2-3 an hour, cost 220 pesos each. A driver will have to park in the car park so you will have to go all the way there, queue to get out etc so you will probably won't end up gaining as much time as you think. Cost probably around 2,000 pesos Buses leave from iniside the terminal and are far more comfortable than a car.

4I’ve had the experience of taking an authorized airport taxi to the bus terminal, and on the way, upon learning that we were headed to Xalapa (which is farther away than Puebla), the taxi driver offered a fixed price to take our group all the way to our destination in Xalapa. The experience shows that some airport taxi drivers are willing (and allowed) to do this, but I don’t know whether you could arrange it beforehand at the booth where you buy the taxi ticket at the airport.
On the other hand, as #1 and #3 point out, there are buses direct to Puebla from the airport. You buy the bus ticket inside the airport, and the bus leaves from the airport. At the other end, there are authorized taxis in the bus terminal that can take you to your destination at any hour of the night.
