Travel time airport to Barcelo with air transat

Does anyone know what the turn around time is from the time you land to arriving at the hotel, travelling with air transat?

Thanks

That's difficult to say, because it depends completely on customs lineup. Once you're through customs and out the airport doors, I'm going to venture to say it'll be about an hour and ten minutes or so - the ride from the airport to the hotel zone is about 40 minutes or so on a big comfortable bus - the time is spent waiting for everyone else from your flight to clear customs and haul their stuff to the bus.

Like any other airport, customs and baggage claim are the real time-stealers. As far as customs goes, we've been through in as little as five minutes, and then spent as little as ten minutes waiting for our bags to get unloaded. Other times, three planes have landed within minutes of each other, and the line has been 30 to 45 minutes long, and our bags are still not available when we're done with customs.

Longest we've spent in the airport was an hour and forty minutes. Least time we've spent was about 20 minutes.

I'm just happy to have a place to talk about Manzanillo without driving my friends, family, and co-workers crazy. :)

It can be better to get a taxi when you get through at the airport, then you don't have to wait for everyone else to get through and on the bus and you don't get stuck behind a check-in line at the hotel which can be another hour and a half of your vacation.

If you know someone who lives here get them to come and pick you up

If not the taxi costs about $30US / $400MXN

My coworkers are already pretty tired of hearing "packing for Mexico stories'. I'm trying to do a three week trip with nothing but carry-on luggage, so I started packing back in May, when I booked the flights. Everyone is pretty bored with the topic by now.

Figuring out how to do carry on only HAS been a challenge, but I have to admit, it helps if the condo you're staying at has in-suite laundry!

WOO HOO 15 SLEEPS!!!
