Travelling from Palma airport to Porto Cristo? A taxi transfer will get you there quickly and easily.
You will have no trouble finding the taxi rank at Mallorca Airport as it is directly opposite the arrivals hall from the Gate C Exit. Once you have picked up your luggage all you have to do is look up and follow the signs that have an image of a taxi on them. All taxis in Mallorca are white with no exception and have the red and yellow colours of the Mallorca flag on their bonnet and both front doors. Plus, just like any other large city in the world, they have the universal illuminated taxi sign on the roof to let you know if they are available or not.
All journeys are calculated by taximeter with a supplement for picking up and dropping off at the airport. The standard fare also increases for journeys in the evening and at night and is more on weekends and public holidays. Taxis in Mallorca are strictly regulated not allowing cabs to carry more than four passengers and that includes children no matter how small. Child seats are not available, and you may have difficulty taking a party of four if you all have luggage.
👍 TIP: If you have special needs like a child seat, restricted mobility or travelling in a group, you might be better off organising a Private Airport Transfer rather than taking a taxi.
Another drawback to taking a taxi from the airport is that you might have to wait in a long queue until a car becomes available. After Madrid and Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca International Airport is the third busiest in Spain and can be packed with holidaymakers during the peak summer season.
⚠️ BE CAREFUL: Because long lines for taxis are quite common during the summer, pirate taxi drivers may try and approach you, offering you are a ride with some story of how they just dropped someone off but are not allowed to legally pick up passengers at the airport. As tempting as it may sound to jump the queue, do not do it, as these private cars are not licensed and insured to carry passengers.
Flying these days is the most stressful it’s ever been, with passengers having to arrive at airports hours before their flight, just so they can empty their pockets, separate things in their bags and worry about if any cosmetics or toothpaste is too big to take with them on the aircraft. With all this in mind plus a, no doubt full flight to deal with, the last thing you want to do when you get to Palma Airport is to be hanging around waiting to take a taxi or catch a bus to Porto Cristo. You can save yourself tons of time and avoid all the hassle of getting to your hotel, villa or apartment by booking a Private Airport Transfer to Porto Cristo
The way it works is that you telephone or book online with a reputable company and they arrange to have a driver waiting for you in the arrivals hall when you get off your flight. There is no waiting around and no guessing as to how much it is going to cost, as you have already been given that information when you made the booking.
👍 TIP: Our favourite of all the private transfer firms in Mallorca is Solhop which, judging by all the complimentary comments left on TripAdvisor, is most other people’s as well. What we like about Solhop is the fact that their cars are new, and we can book a vehicle to suit our needs. All Solhop’s drivers speak English and there is never a problem if you need to cancel or alter your booking.

Porto Cristo is very easy to get to from the airport by following the signs for Manacor. When leaving the airport, take the first exit onto the MA-19 in the direction of Palma and then take Exit 3 onto the MA-20 Palma ring road until you reach the exit for the MA-15 which will take you all the way to Manacor. Once you reach Manacor turn right onto the MA-4020 which will take you right into Porto Cristo.
