          Hello!!! Yes, we have a parking available although it has a cost $12 per day. But we also have one space in our property, and if it is available for the nights you need we can reserve it for you free of charge.

          Response from SilviaVargas | Property representative |
          Hello. The transfer from the airport is $35 up to 4 pax. The time that ride will take depends on the hour you need it, it could be around 40 minutes to 1 hour.
