  • Transportation

    Culiacans airport

  • The airport, being the most important domestic gateway in

    the state of Sinaloa, and the second on international

    operations after Mazatlan International Airport, second

    before Los Mochis International Airport has undergone major

    construction consisting of a new terminal layout and a new

    boarding system. It has two jet ways. In 2010, Culiacan

    airport handled 1,059,904 passengers.

    The day and time you arrive there will be for sure a

    bunch of AIESECers waiting for you to greet you!

  • Culiacans bus terminal

    We have this bus station since 2000 and it connects

    Culiacan with the entire country by earth.

  • As of urban transportation comes, Culiacan has over 68

    bus routes, so you can get everywhere you like. This

    urban routes charge 7 pesos and if you are a student it

    cost over 3.50 pesos per trip. We cant wait until you

    experience a bus trip in our city, you will find them very

    singular since they are like moving night clubs because

    of the music they have, and if you are one of those

    people who like defending their rights everywhere, you

    will also have fun having arguments with the

    unconsidered bus drivers sometimes.

    This is all part of Culiacans charm.
