Grand Canyon

After hiring a car in Las Vegas, drive out to the iconic Grand Canyon, passing the Hoover Damn and the man-made Lake Mead on route. The famous route through the Mojave Desert will amaze you with its eerie desolate beauty. The Canyon itself was formed over millions of years as the Colorado River flowed toward the west. Descending for more than a mile in places, this is a wonder of the natural world – there are many plants and animals that call the canyon home.

Getting around San José
Car hire.

Getting around San José

Juan Santamaria Airport is located just 12-kilometres away from San José. If you’re staying in San José we’d recommend pre-booking a transfer. You’ll be given the opportunity to add a private door-to-door transfer once you’ve booked your flight or holiday. If you don’t book a transfer, then Taxi Aeropuerto are a reliable way into the city and can be booked directly outside the airport. You can get to the centre for around $25-30. You can also get street taxis into the city, but these will vary in price, sometimes wildly depending on traffic.

*All bookings made after 2 January 2017 are not required to pay the local departure tax, as this is now included in the price.
