Air

Campeche's small but modern airport is 6km southeast of the center; it has car-rental offices and a tiny snack bar. Aeroméxico provides services.

Bus

Campeche’s main bus terminal, usually called the ADO or 1st-class terminal, is about 2.5km south of Plaza Principal via Av Central. Buses provide 1st-class and deluxe service to Mérida, Cancún, Chetumal (via Xpujil), Palenque, Veracruz and Mexico City, along with 2nd-class services to Sabancuy (M$142, two hours), Hecelchakán (M$48, one hour) and Candelaria (M$215, four hours).

The 2nd-class terminal, often referred to as the ‘old ADO’ station' or 'Autobuses del Sur', is 700m east of the Mercado Principal. Second-class destinations include Hopelchén (M$71, 1½ hours), Xpujil (M$232, four hours) Uxmal (M$137, one hour) and Bécal (M$60, 1¾ hours).

Transportes Crígar is a handy spot to buy ADO (1st-class) bus tickets. Or try other travel agencies around town.

To get to the main bus terminal, catch any ‘Las Flores,’ ‘Solidaridad’ or ‘Casa de Justicia’ microbus by the post office. To the 2nd-class terminal, catch a ‘Terminal Sur’ bus from the same point.

A taxi costs around M$40.

If you're arriving in Campeche from the south, via the cuota (toll road), turn left at the roundabout signed for the universidad and follow that road straight to the coast, then go north.

If you’re heading to either Edzná, the long route to Mérida or the fast toll road going south, take Calle 61 to Av Central and follow signs for the airport and either Edzná or the cuota. For the non-toll route south, just head down the malecón. For the short route to Mérida go north on the malecón.

In addition to some outlets at the airport, several car-rental agencies can be found downtown, including Avis. Rates start from M$700 per day depending on the season.
