Due to the higher risk of carjackings and random attacks, it is highly recommended to hire a chauffeured car from a reputable car service instead of going with a self-drive car rental. Contact the private car service of your choice for rates and reservations.
Some local hotels offer shuttle service to and from the airport. Contact your hotel of choice for availability and details.
Both metered and private taxis are available for hire from the ground transportation area of the airport. Taxis can also be pre-booked before arrival.
