Transportation in Caborca

Many destinations in Caborca are easily reached on foot or within driving distance. Driving tips.

However, if you'd prefer not to drive, there are other transportation options for getting around - taxis, and the public transportation vans - "La Ruta."



Commercial Bus Lines

Caborca is on the main highway route between Tijuana and other parts of Mexico, and as such there are many buses that pass through at all hours of the day.

The two main bus stations are on the Carretera Internacional (Mexico highway 2) - Davila's (adjacent to the Motel Los Arcos and Bar La Cava), which serves a number of bus lines, and across the street, Transportes Pacifico (TAP). There is a direct bus to Nogales that leaves every day at 5:30 a.m. from Davila's.

There's also an Albratros bus station on 8th street, a couple blocks north of the Carretera Internacional, which has several daily departures to Rocky Point.

Local Transportation

Taxi Service

You can find a taxi stop in front of any place where people congregate, such as the bus station, grocery stores, and the plaza. Taxi drivers are generally very courteous and professional, and although you probably won't find one that speaks English - if you know the name of the location where you're going that should be sufficient.

Taxis typically charge 40-60 pesos each way. Prices fluctuate though, so ask the driver before you depart how much it will cost to get to your destination.

If you don't want to walk to a taxi stop, you can call for a taxi:

Taxi Ismael Beltran Padilla

La Ruta

La Ruta is the local "mass transit" in Caborca, consisting of a fleet of vans that drive in routes around the city. There are various routes that travel to different parts of Caborca, with the main plaza being the start/end point.

If you have a specific destination, taking a taxi is probably your best bet. But, if you don't have a specific destination in mind, would like to see different parts of Caborca and don't mind riding in the back of a possibly cramped van (a popular local mode of transportation, they tend to be filled with people) you might find that it's fun to take a ride and see the sights from the Ruta.

A ride on the ruta costs 5 pesos (about 40 cents).They all travel in circuitous routes, so you'll eventually end up at the same place where you started. And, if you get off to walk around or visit a store, another will be coming along soon (just don't ask for a transfer, you'll need to pay every time you ride).
