La Ventana Travel Information
La Ventana is located 7 km off the Los Planes Highway (286) out of La Paz. You can fly into La Paz (LAP) or Los Cabos (SJD). La Paz is closer but Los Cabos has many direct flights with attractive prices. The downside of flying to Cabo is that you will pay more for the taxi to La Ventana or have to rent a car. Once in La Ventana you generally will not need a car since everything is so close. However, you may want one to make other trips for sightseeing or snorkeling.

For rental cars, we have gotten the best rates by negotiating directly at the airport. If it is a peak vacation time all the cars may be reserved and you will want to make your reservation early. Usually you can rent an economy car for around $200 for a week including insurance. A mini van will cost around $400 and a big van or SUV around $600.



Check with your credit card issuer as you may be able to decline the insurance the agencies offer. (Visa Gold or Platinum, for example, will act as the primary insurer for cars rented outside of the US.)

La Paz Flights: La Paz has the advantage of being closer to La Ventana; only about 40 minutes by car. Unfortunately, the only direct flight to La Paz is from LAX so if you are coming from another area with a direct flight to Los Cabos that may affect your flight decision. Alaska Airlines has a good flight into La Paz from LAX, but not every day. Rental cars are also available at the airport. In La Paz, taxis to La Ventana are available at the airport or get in touch with us and we can set up your taxi-- the service costs about $120 US for RT ground transportation for 1-3 people plus $10 per extra person.



Los Cabos Flights: VIRGIN AMERICA, CONTINENTAL, UNITED, U.S. AIR, ALASKA, AMERICAN and AEROMEXICO serve Los Cabos (airport code SJD). Once you arrive at Los Cabos you can get to La Ventana by rental car or taxi. If you are taking a taxi, make sure you tell the driver that it is not "LAS VENTANAS," (which is near Los Cabos) but LA VENTANA (which is near Los Planes.) Also, be sure to have a price agreed on prior to getting on board. The drive is about 2 hours. We work with specific taxi companies that offer better prices than what you would get at the airport. Round trip (RT) ground transfer cost is about $260 for up to 3 passengers plus $10 per extra person for 4-10 passengers. There is also a local web blast where visitors get ride shares together. We are working with one of our taxi companies to get daily shuttle going from/to La Ventana, more details soon.
