121CarHire.com compares the prices of well-known car hire companies in Mexico, including the following location: San Felipe Airport
San Felipe International Airport is a general aviation facility which is located around six miles south of San Felipe city centre. It is a gateway to Baja California Sur for private pilots, while occasional charter flights filled with property speculators also land here. At one time a peaceful fishing village, San Felipe has now been developed into a busy resort which is popular among both Mexican and US tourists.
San Felipe Airport facilities
Around 20 private pilots land here each day, checking-in their aircraft and completing immigration formalities after arrival. They can use the small terminal building between 08:00 and 18:00 during the summer, and from 07:00 and 17:00 during winter. There is a convenient taxi service into the resort centre, while car rental in San Felipe Airport is offered by no less than four suppliers.
San Felipe Airport excursions
Most visitors spend their time in San Felipe relaxing on the beach or visiting the bars and restaurants on the Malecon (waterfront). However, car hire in San Felipe Airport is necessary to reach the outlying beaches and campsites. Travellers can also use a vehicle to reach Puertecitos, which is home to geothermal hot springs on the Sea of Cortez.
Best time to visit
The American Spring Break is the peak period for US tourists and a time when San Felipe may feel a little overcrowded for some. The International Blues and Arts Festival is held here in March and offers a more cultured alternative. San Felipe's desert climate ensures a wide range of temperatures; summer temperatures can hit well over 40ºC, while winter nights can be as cool as 4ºC. Travellers visiting in spring and autumn should find a comfortable medium.
Car rental in San Felipe Airport
Visitors can compare car hire from four reputable firms, including California Baja Rent a Car and A1 Rent a Car, online pre-arrival. Drivers should be wary about parking on the beach since the San Felipe tide comes in quickly. Driving on the beach is not easy at any time of the year and should only be attempted by those with four-wheel drive vehicles.
