==Travel to Almería==

Almería Airport has frequent connections to Madrid (Iberia) and almost daily ones to Barcelona (Vueling). It also has flights to other European airports such as London–Gatwick, Amsterdam, Brussels, etc.
You can check all destinations and airlines at the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almer%C3%ADa_Airport#Airlines_and_destinations Wikipedia page about the airport] or in this [http://aeropuertoalmeria.info/verano-2017/ unofficial airport page] that contains the days the flights happen (L=Monday, M=Tuesday, X=Wednesday, J=Thusday, V=Friday, S=Saturday, D=Sunday).

===Málaga Airport (AGP)===
Málaga is the fourth busiest airport in Spain and thus has flights to most of major European airports and some non-European ones (Montreal, New York, Casablanca, Tel Aviv).
You can check all the destinations on the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A1laga_Airport#Airlines_and_destinations Wikipedia page] about the airport.
===How to arrive from Málaga Airport to Almería===
'''Direct bus'''
There's two daily direct buses operated by ALSA: a non-stop one that takes around 3h, and one with two stops that takes 3.5 hours.
* Price: Around 20€ one way
* Málaga Airport - Almería: 14:15 and 15:30
* Almería - Málaga Airport: 9:30 and 15:30
You can get a ticket by visiting the [https://www.alsa.es/en/our-destinations/airports/malaga-costa-del-sol ALSA web page] and filling in Almeria as destination (you may want to click the "switch destinations" icon since it defaults to from "somewhere" to Málaga Airport, and most probably you want it the other way around).
'''Bus to Málaga and then a train or bus to Almería'''
There's a bus service available that links Málaga Airport with Málaga, and it stops both at the main bus station and train station of Málaga.
There are many daily direct ALSA buses from Málaga to Almería, taking between 3 and 5 hours depending on the intermediate stops.
There are no direct trains between Málaga and Almería. You have to transfer at the Antequera-Santa Ana station. Travel time is around 30 minutes between Málaga-María Zambrano and Antequera-Santa Ana, and 4 hours between Antequera-Santa Ana and Almería. You can check train timetables at the [http://www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros/index.html Renfe] website.
Please understand that both Renfe and ALSA tickets are valid only for the time you bought them (i.e. if you buy a ticket for 18:00 it will not be valid for the 19:00 train/bus). Plan in advance and make sure you will be able to get to the station on time.
There are several people that offer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carpool carpool] rides between different points of Málaga (some including the airport) to Almería. [https://www.blablacar.co.uk/search?fn=M%C3%A1laga%2C+Spain&tn=Almer%C3%ADa%2C+Spain BlaBlaCar] is one of the companies offering that service.
'''By taxi'''
This may sound crazy, but there are several companies offering transfer between the Málaga Airport and Almería ([http://malagaradiotaxi.es/tarifas.html one for 185€], [http://www.taxis-malaga.net/precios.php another for 220€]) so if you pool with 4 people, it is not that expensive. Travel time is around 2 hours.
