Train. Theres a station in salou. Very easy. Or on the planabus. Bus cost about 17e each way on average. Plana bus do an excursion to see fountains or football ground for 36e per person, but it only runs certdays of week.

Bus is about 2 hours, train a tad quicker.

If its do it yourself then the train is quicker.

If you fancy a tour, then Plana bus has several different types. If you into football then do the city tour with a stop at Barcelona football club.

Beware of any of the transfer companies, as we have used them and it takes a lifetime just to leave the airport, as they tend to wait for other later flights to arrive.

I always use the train it costs around 8€ dead easy to buy a ticket at the station or on the train. Get off at the last stop ESTACIO DE FRANCA if you want the Zoo, gothic quarter, Ramblas.

Sants Estacio if you want the metro to go to the footy stadium or the Sagrada Familiar.

Caution at Sants its full of pickpockets so watch your belongings.

There is a train from Salou to Barcelona. I think Barcelona Sants is the easiest station for the airport then you would have to get another train to the airport.

Have a look at the link below for more information.

tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g187497-s301/Barcel…

Plana bus do a service which would be direct from Salou to the airport this may be an easier option travelling with kids.
