There is a local bus stop outside the airport. It costs about 1 US$ and takes you right downtown (TUASA – Red ones). Once you get downtown, you have to look for Paseo Colon, Calle 24, next to Torre Mercedes, we are on the corner. You have to be aware of many unlicensed taxi drivers who will overcharge you, or telling you that there is no space in Hostel Casa Colon and take you to other places just to get a juicy commission. This is Not True; we always have plenty of space available for you and your friends. However, if you want things a lot easier, we do have our own private airport shuttle cheaper than taxis and just for guests at Hostel Casa Colon, so you can arrange with us, if you want us to pick you up in your previously reservation or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
