Taxis from Murcia-San Javier Airport into the city normally cost around €60 (£50). The journey time is around half an hour.
Alternatively, for a slightly longer transfer into Murcia, you can take a five-minute taxi for around €12 (£10) from Murcia-San Javier to the nearby fishing town of Santiago de la Ribera, which doubles as a transport hub. Various buses depart to Murcia for €5 (£4.25) from there, taking 50 minutes. If you’re really counting the pennies, buses connect Murcia’s airport to Santiago de la Ribera as well – Line 70 is the one you want, and the fare is €6 (£5).
Currently, there are no buses running directly from Murcia-San Javier airport to Murcia.
A taxi to Murcia from Alicante-Elche Airport (ALC) will set you back approximately €100 (£85).
If you’d rather get the bus, then good news: the ALSA company operates a nonstop service. Note that the stop is located outside the Departures level, not Arrivals. It leaves as many as eight times a day and arrives in Murcia in just 55 minutes.
Getting around Murcia is easy as it’s a pint-sized city. Few journeys on foot take more than an hour – unless you want them to, of course.
Most of cultural sights are in the old town area south of Plaza Santo Domingo, and either side of Plaza de Cetina. A little further on are a series of lovely green spaces – including the tree-lined Huerto de los Cipreses – bordering the Rio Segura.
If you do need to rest your legs, a regular bus service can also get you around Murcia. Taxis, however, are often elusive, especially around siesta time.
From Murcia del Carmen station, trains serve a variety of towns and cities including Cartagena, Alicante or Valencia. You can also take a train to the Costa Calida port of Aguilas for access to local beaches.
