How to Get to Corvera from the Airport
The new Murcia International Airport is being built at Corvera and is due to open in the summer of 2013, but until then visitors can fly to Alicante airport, which is just over an hour away by car. You can either rent a car at the airport, which will also be very useful for exploring the towns around Corvera rentals, or you can make use of one of several companies that provide a shuttle bus from Alicante airport to Corvera.
Alternatively, you can use Murcia's San Javier airport, which is only around 45 minutes from Corvera by hire car or taxi, but you will probably find there are more regular and cheaper flights from your nearest UK airport to Alicante.
