          Get the airport shuttle The folks who run the shuttle also manage the hotel. They are great people. Do not use a cab. They are expensive

          If there is no public transportation within walking distance, take the complimentary shuttle to the airport, I'm confident that there are buses making scheduled runs to the city center...check the airport website.

          They do not start the airport shuttle service too early, maybe 8 AM. They arranged a 4:30 AM taxi for me. It showed up on time and only cost about $7 (USD) with tip.
