Bus and taxi information San Pedro - Ojen
by: Marbella Family

There are buses that run from Ojen and San Pedro, however, it looks as there is no direct. From what I find now you will have to take a bus from Ojen to Marbella bus station and then catch a bus from Marbella station to San Pedro bus station.

Assuming you are staying in Ojen and the kids are in a camp in San Pedro, you will have to take the 8:25am bus to reach Marbella by 8:55am (the bus takes 30 min), then you will have to take the 9:00am bus to San Pedro to reach there by 9:40 (it´s a 40 min ride). This gives you 20 minutes to reach the camp. I´m not sure where your camp is, but you need to factor in walking time.

If it is at all possible, I recommend you hire a car. It will take you approximately 20 minutes to reach San Pedro from Ojen, which is much shorter than the 1 hour 10 minute travel time by bus.

A taxi in general from Marbella to San Pedro is about 10 euros, so a taxi to Ojen I imagine would be at least 20 euros...one way. You could hire a car cheaper than the 40 euro per day you would spend on a taxi. I can look further into this to find out an exact price for you.

If you would like more information on bus routes and times from Ojen take a look at the Portillo website. This is the local bus service that runs in Marbella.
