Best transport from Rota to Malaga

Post by vbetterton » Wed Feb 06, 2013 12:32 am

I am arriving in Rota Spain at around 10:30 the morning of February 27, 2013 and need to get to Malaga. Should I take a bus or train? Can I get to Malaga at a reasonable time on the 27th, or should I plan to travel to Cadiz,stay in Cadiz a night, and then depart for Malaga early on the 28th of February?

Hello and welcome!
I used to take the train from Puerto de Santa Maria to Malaga, if you choose this, the journey will take approximately 5 hours since you get into the first train. The journey from Rota to Puerto de Santa Maria by car is approximately 25 minutes.

You must take two trains, the first one to Seville and the second one from Seville to Malaga:

1-Train to Seville Santa Justa or Seville Dos Hermanas (15 minutes difference, Santa Justa is the last stop and Dos Hermanas the one before, it will take you 2 hours)

2-Train from any of those stations above to Malaga which is the last stop.
