​​​​​​​​​​Ground Transportion

​​When staying at Casa del Cielo, we recommend hiring an automobile.  Car hire is very reasonable on the Costa del Sol, particularly when reserved in advance.  For the best rates and availability, we reccommend DoYouSpain. They have an excellent service that seeks the least cost options across multiple providers - a one-stop shop.

Alternatively, if you wish to hire a taxi service, we recommend Mijas Taxi.  You can book online, and they serve the entire Costa del Sol.
