There are many options for shared shuttle transfers for tourists, which are more comfortable, secure, and you will be picked up from and dropped off at your hotels (typically $40 – 60 per person).  Private transfers are another option, though usually a little more expensive than shuttle transfers.  Domestic flights are another option, though generally more expensive than shuttles or private transfers.
