1. How to arrive in Murcia
1) By train

Visit the RENFE website (http://www.renfe.es) for schedules. You should get off at the “Murcia del Carmen” station.

2) By road

The Murcia region has a good road system connecting it to other Spanish regions. The highways A-92 (to Granada) and E-15 (to Almería) connect Murcia with Andalucía in the South. Albacete and Madrid can be reached following the A3-301 highway. The Mediterranean regions, including Alicante, Valencia and Barcelona, can be accessed following the E-15 highway or the N-332 road; the latter runs along the coast from Cartagena northwards.

3) By plane

You can arrive in Murcia by plane at two airports. The closest one is San Javier-Murcia airport (MJV), located 47 km away from Murcia (a 30 minute highway drive). San Javier offers scheduled and chartered flights to major Spanish cities and several other locations throughout Europe.

You can also arrive at the El Altet airport (ALC) in Alicante, which is 68 km away from Murcia (a 50 minute highway drive).

3) Taxis
Taxis are also available from the airports to the city. The ride from San Javier costs about 42 Euros. From Alicante, it costs from 75 to 85 Euros.

3. How to get around once in Murcia
You can go to any place in Murcia on foot. However, if this is your first time in Murcia and you want to make it to your hotel quickly, you can take a bus or a taxi.
Taxis are the easiest way to reach your destination as you first arrive in Murcia. However, they won’t be the most convenient means of transportation from then on, both because of their high fares and the frequent traffic jams in the downtown area.

  • Radio Taxi Murcia: +34 968 248 800 / +34 968 297 700

The price of the ticket for the buses is about 1 Euro (depending on the route).

  • If you arrive at the bus station, the best way to reach Murcia downtown is to take the bus called Rayo 15. There is a bus stop for this line at “Escultor José Sánchez Lozano” steet, # 7 (very close to the station). You should get off at the stops “Plaza Cetina” or “Arco de San Juan”.

  • If you arrive at the train station, the best way to reach downtown is the Rayo 17 bus. There is a bus stop right outside the train station. Get off at the “Universidad” bus stop.

Both lines will leave you close to the conference hotels.
