Please wait for your driver by the red ‘RELAY’ boutique, just outside the arrivals hall.

Meeting point at Malaga airport

Transfers are operated by a small team of friendly, self-employed locals who know the area and provide a personal service in English/Spanish. This service is offered because there is no taxi company in our local town and our drivers know exactly where to go, saving you time and money.

Out Of Hours Transfers
If the timing of a Shared-Car Transfer does not coincide with your flight arrival, we can arrange for a driver to meet you at the airport (24 hours notice required).

Google Map Position

36.898582 – 3.441095 Directions in brief: follow the Mediterranean coast to Motril, turn inland towards Granada and follow signs to Orgiva

Full Directions

On leaving the airport follow the signs for MALAGA and then ALMERIA & MOTRIL – AUTOVIA A7. After about 10kms the motorway divides and it is important that you continue in the left hand lane to follow the signs for ALMERIA & MOTRIL (do not filter right to the A-45 for Cordoba Sevilla). You are on the Autovia del Meditaraneo going eastwards along the coast and you will drive through numerous long tunnels for approximately 100kms. At junction KM 328 the motorway divides again and you keep in the right hand lane : exit the A-7 and follow the signs for A-44 Velez de Benaudalla, GRANADA & JAEN (do not go towards Motril and Almeria). Continue another 10kms until you see signs for junction KM 175  ORGIVA and LAS ALPUJARRAS. The slip road brings you down the hill to the large dam and roundabout where you turn right towards ORGIVA. Keep going for about 20 mins until you go through a tunnel, then turn immediately left to a bridge over the River Guadalfeo towards ORGIVA. Follow the main road through the town and continue to follow directions for GRANADA. As you leave ORGIVA you will pass a small BP filling station before a stone bridge, then carry straight on and after 0.5km there is a larger BP filling station on the right.

Landmarks from Orgiva to Kaliyoga

1) Continue for about 1km and you will see ‘Camping Puerta de la Alpujarra’ campsite on your left. Carry on about 400m – there is a short section of the straight road followed by a sharp right-hand bend (see photo 1 & 2)… Slow down at the Chevron. 3) INDICATE LEFT and TURN LEFT immediately by the long green hedge and go past the recycling & bus shelter – now follow the unmade road that runs parallel to the main road for a few meters, then it heads south towards the mountains. Follow the track slowly as it’s quite bumpy. You will pass a white farm building on the right and then at the bottom of the hill keep LEFT  at the building called “Fabricolat de Queso de las Alpujarras” (see photo) then continue straight past a large circular water container to your right… Continue straight on for about 600 meters. Keep going straight… Don’t follow any turnings to the right… you’re nearly there… the Kaliyoga sign is on the right just after the brow of a short steep hill (see photo).
