If you want a hotel close to the airport (about 15 minutes 5km a bit longer to go back to airport in the morning) but quiet and pleasant try Hotel Aeropuerto . But if downtown is for you I would e-mail Hotel Tomas direct and ask about transport times because they will know and their English is very good. If you are hiring a car Tomas has easy and secure parking and if you want to pick up a car in the downtown area navigation from the hire companies wouldn't be too bad
