- The best way to fly to area is via Málaga airport as it has lots of connections. However, there is also an airport in Granada and Almeria also, but they are much smaller.
- Next, you can rent the car or take the bus to Compéta. Both infrastructures are just perfect. There is most excellent highway connecting Málaga and Compéta, approximately half of it has top speed as 120 kilometres per hour (however, take into consideration traffic cameras which areas of occurence are actually marked by signes beforehand). The distance from airport is 70 kilometres and one can drive it easily by one hour. From airport, take A-7 to Almeria. There is no highway toll on that road (unless you are speeding).
- The bus is a quite good alternative unless you are coming by night flight. There is a train connection in between Málaga airport and main railway station called Maria Zambrano. The travel is just some stops and it will take around ten minutes. The bus station is just next to the railway station. But there are just three buses a day: see their timetable here. You can buy tickets on board of the bus.
- Our townhouse Casa Caliza stays quite close to the bus station in Compéta, just five-seven minutes of walk up to hill (if you have no heavy suitcases).
