San Jose del Cabo Airport to La Paz with EcoBajaTours

Flight schedules into San Jose del Cabo Airport (SJD) are much more widely available than into La Paz from the US. Even with the 3-3.5 hour road transfer between the SJD Airport and La Paz, total travel time from the US may be shorter than flying directly into La Paz.

My international flight arrived in Terminal 2 and Ecobajatours’ office is in Terminal 1. SJD Airport has three terminals and they are not connected by internal walkways or trains as in many airports. If you want to stretch your legs, don’t have heavy luggage, and/or aren’t in warm winter clothing, you can walk from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 easily. It’s about half a mile between the two terminals so a 5-10 minute walk. Turn left and follow the sidewalk to the next terminal.

Otherwise, you can take a shuttle between terminals. When you exit the airport and are outside, you’ll be approached by people asking if you need a taxi or shuttle. Let them know you’re just going to Terminal 1 and you should be able to get a driver to take you free plus a tip.

Navigating Ecobajatours’ website ( isn’t always easy and departure/arrival options aren’t clear. However, you can email them directly or via Facebook. In addition to booking round-trip transfers from SJD to La Paz, I also booked private transfers from the airport to a hotel in Cabo San Lucas. The transfers were on time and drivers courteous and safe. The group shuttles hold a maximum of seven passengers so it’s a good idea to book ahead of time. The shuttles also have wifi on board. Reception is spotty in locations, but a nice perk.
