Arriving By Plane
It is very convenient to fly directly into Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), but often tickets are cheaper flying into Orlando (MCO), Sanford (SFB), or Jacksonville (JAX), even including cost of transportation to Daytona Beach.
- DOTS Shuttle provides service from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) to the El Caribe. You will need to make your reservations at least 2 days in advance. You can reach DOTS at (386) 257-5411 or at www.dotsdaytona.com.
- Mears Transportation (mearstransportation.com)
- Uber is a great option. You may be able get a better rate if you book a shuttle as a group. Also, it can be cheap to share a rental car with a group. You can also search the web for shuttle service from local airports.
(Use our “IBS & NSO Winter 2019” Facebook group to communicate with others who are flying into the Orlando airport to see if someone wants to share a shuttle or rental car and save money.)
Arriving By Greyhound Bus
- The Greyhound bus station in Daytona Beach is 2.5 miles from the El Caribe. Taxi service is available.
The “IBS & NSO Winter 2019” Facebook Group is an essential tool for connecting with other New Staff members (e.g. sharing rides to/from the airport, etc.). It will also be the main way the NST conference team shares announcements.
