Individual journeys cost from €1.30 to 5,30 depending on how many saltos (zone boundaries you cross). There are six zones called A to F.  A being the city centre and F the furthest outlying district.  There is also a tarjeta de transporte (card) which you buy  for €1,50 and then charge the card with a minimum of 5€. You can buy charge the card at  the aforementioned city bus kiosk at the Parada Central de Zafra and in the many estanco (tobacconist's) and kiosks. The card then lets you use the bus for 0,92 € to 3,91 €  depending on how many saltos (zone boundaries you cross).  Here is a pdf of leaflet (in Spanish) explaining the card and showing a map of the six zones.  

 

 

BOAT

A ferry service runs during the summer months to the nearest beach resort to Huelva, Punta Umbría. It leaves from the Muelle de las Canaos.

See our Boat Trips section.

CAR

As the centre of Huelva is relatively small, you can walk between the main sights. It is worth either finding a hotel with its own parking or paying for a car park - which are well-signposted - rather than parking your car on the street, since there is widespread theft. The central area has strictly controlled parking with metered areas. Be careful not to park in a no-parking zone since your car may get towed away by the "grua" (crane).

Hire a car is another alternative way to get around!  Consult our general Car Hire page.

TAXI

Taxi ranks are on Calle Plus Ultra near the Iglesia de la Concepción in the centre and outside the railway station. A city cab firm is Teletaxi, Tel: 959 25 00 22.
