These buses are too infrequent and unreliable; we bought 2 5 day tickets when we should have bought a Giro bus ticket and used the rapid local buses. The trip to Camera to Do Lobos is underwhelming; horrible little fishing village with nothing going on,The...More

Don't think you can use ticket on public buses! Buses stop at same bus stop and didn't see anyone with a 24/48 hr pass using public buses!
