Take the FV-2 south from Fuerteventura Airport towards Morro Jable (Esquinzo and Butihondo are about 6km east of Morro Jable). Drive south past Caleta de Fuste, Gran Tarajal, Tarajalejo and Oasis Park, before joining the new section of motorway (Eje Norte-Sur) that bypasses the centre of Costa Calma. Follow the motorway south and take the Butihondo exit, then at the next roundabout, keep an eye out for the signposts which indicate directions for most hotels. The journey takes about 80 minutes.

It costs around €90 for a taxi from the airport to Butihondo/Esquinzo (it’s 76km from the airport), so it’s the most expensive option. There are, however, plenty of taxis, and it’s usually the quickest option.
By Airport Transfer
Booking an Airport Transfer offers the convenience of being dropped off right outside your Hotel, and is the cheapest option (a transfer to Esquinzo costs as little as €10.50 per person). You can also book a private bus if you are a larger group. This is a much more economical than paying for several taxis – and is even cheaper than getting the public bus! Note that you cannot purchase a ticket for a shuttle bus upon arrival at the airport, so it must be pre-booked in advance. Click here for more information or to book.
