Cynthia asked me how to get to Hotel Cortijo Blanco by bus from Malaga airport. I recommended the excellent bus shuttle service from Malaga airport to Marbella bus station (9 euros) and then a taxi from the Marbella bus station to the hotel. This part of the journey would cost around €18 by day and €22 after 10pm and at weekends.
Cynthia could then take the bus to Estepona from the Marbella bus station to just before the Cortijo Blanco Hotel which will be on the other side of the road. The footbridge is about 500 metres on the mountain side of the Globales Cortijo Blanco Hotel which will mean a short trundle pulling her suitcase.
The next stop after the Hotel Globales Cortijo Blanco Hotel is the San Pedro de Alcantará terminal. If Cynthia didn’t want to pull her suitcase she could get off there and take a taxi back to the hotel. It would be a minimum fare of about 10 euros during the day.
Going back to Malaga airport however she could comfortable take the bus all the way back to Marbella bus station because the bus stop on the hotel side of the road is right in front of the hotel.
