The next time you need to travel, use Orbitz.com to find flights from Guadalajara to just about anywhere you need to go. The main airport in Guadalajara is the Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport (Tlajomulco de ZuÃ±iga)â€Ž, located roughly 20 miles southeast of Guadalajara and 10 miles from Chapala. The airport has only two terminals, which are within walking distance of each other.
The Guadalajara airport offers on-site parking just outside the terminal building near the airport hotel. Daily parking rates there are roughly 300 pesos. There are several commercial parking lots near the airport that offer long-term parking deals at discounted prices. Most of them have free shuttles that will take you to and from the airport as needed. Look for lots that have 24-hour security personnel and security cameras.
You can jump on the airport minibus service, Servicio Colectivo, which leaves from the city center and heads to the airport every hour. The trip takes roughly 35 minutes. A taxi may be your best bet to get to the airport quickly and safely. Taxis cost between 200 and 300 pesos.
Since the Guadalajara airport completed its recent expansion, you have many more airport dining choices. Full-service restaurants include Chilis Too, Corner Bar, El Quijote, La Pausa, Fronteras Bar, Medas and Wings. Grab a snack or meal to go at Burger King, Duda Snack Bar or Natural Break. For coffee or a light breakfast, choose Starbucks or Dolphy. Have a great trip, and don't forget to use Orbitz.com to purchase your next air ticket on one of the many flights from Guadalajara.
On your next trip to the Pacific Northwest, use Orbitz to find low-cost domestic and international flights to Seattle. The primary airport is the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, more commonly known as Sea-Tac, located roughly 15 miles south of downtown Seattle. The Boeing Field-King County International Airport is less than 10 miles south of the city, but flights into this airport are generally more limited and a bit more expensive.
You will have several public transportation options once you land in Seattle, including Link Light Rail and King County Metro Transit. There are also public taxis, share-a-ride shuttles and private car services ready to bring you to your final destination. Expect to pay a fare of between $35 and $45 from Sea-Tac into downtown Seattle, and roughly half of that from the Boeing Field airport. Use Orbitz.com to plan your trip, and you will be able to either rent a car or choose a hotel that has free shuttle service to and from the airport.
Seattle has a mild climate, with winter temperatures usually ranging from the mid-30s to the mid-40s and summer temperatures that rarely go above the mid-70s. November and December usually have a fair amount of rainfall, but the rest of the year is fairly dry. Because cool nights occur year round, plan a wardrobe that you can layer to accommodate the fluctuating temperatures.
Visitors to Seattle have no shortage of things to see and do. Some of the most famous landmarks include the Space Needle, the site of the original Starbucks in Pike Place Market and Bill Gates' house on Lake Washington. There are also plenty of parks, museums, theaters, shops and restaurants in and around the city. Enjoy your stay, and the next time you need discount flights to Seattle, be sure to use Orbitz.com.
