Revised in November 2018
(Update on status of RMU and MJV as at November 2018: please note that Murcia Int'l/Corvera (RMU) remains inoperative at present, but that during 2018 definite plans were announced for it to open mid-January 2019, when it will replace Murcia/San Javier (MJV); the plans provide that MJV will cease civilian flight operations on one day in mid-January 2019 and that RMU will commence civilian flights the following day, with all relevant personnel and ancilliary services transferring overnight to allow for continuity of operations (to include air-traffic control, ground, airline, car hire/rental, catering and retail outlets, taxi and all other personnel); the contract to operate RMU has been awarded to AENA, who already operate most civilian airports throughout Spain, including MJV, and they appear (from what I can gather) to be making good progress in planning for the changeover. MJV will not close completely, but will remain operational for military flights. With AENA overseeing the change, one can probably be reasonably certain that the changeover will occur smoothly and on schedule, but until it happens, a certain caution may be warranted for those travelling in mid-January into or from MJV or RMU over the couple of days when the changeover is likely to happen.)
Coming from the direction of San Javier (Murcia Airport), using AP7 (Toll road) - IATA Code: MJV

  • From the airport, follow Cartagena signs onto Autopista AP7

  • After about 16kms follow signs for AP-7 extension for Murcia/Almeria/Vera/Los Beatos (Junction 800)

  • Very shortly (a few hundred metres) after taking the exit, ignore the next exit right for Los Beatos and continue straight on for a few hundred more metres

  • Take the next exit right (curving sharply right and upwards) for Murcia/Vera/Almeria, taking care on the exit ramp because it is quite short - slow down or stop before merging left onto the Cartagena by-pass

  • You are now on the toll-free section of this toll motorway which loops around to the north of Cartagena

  • At the far end of the Cartagena by-pass section of the motorway, collect a ticket at the toll-booth

  • Continue on AP7 to the Mazarron exit (Junction 845) and pay toll on exiting (see table at foot of page)

  • After the toll-booth turn right at the roundabout following sign for 'Totana/Murcia'

  • After a short distance follow sign onto RM-3 for Totana, turning sharp right and going up ramp onto the motorway

  • You are now on the Mazarron/Totana motorway RM-3 [+]. Continue for about 4 Km, and exit at Jt20, marked 'Urbanización Country Club'. Go straight across round-about,  following 'Urbanización' sign. The entrance into Mazarron Country Club is on the right just after passing a garden-centre, also on the right (you will see a small white sign "Finca Isavera" just at the entrance)

[+] Please note that the map above does not show the new RM-3 motorway, because it opened only during summer 2007, after the map was published.

To Return to San Javier (Murcia Airport) - IATA Code: MJV

  • Turn left on exiting MCC and join MU-603 (this is the old 'feeder' road running beside the new Mazarron/Totana motorway RM-3)

  • After a couple of hundred metres, join RM-3 at Jt 20, cross the bridge and follow signs for Mazarron

  • Continue until 2nd exit after petrol stations you will pass on your left

  • Take exit for AP-7 Almeria/Vera/Cartagena motorway

  • Follow signs to toll-booth

  • After toll-booth turn right in direction of 'Cartagena'

  • Continue until toll-booth at end of the toll-section of the motorway and pay toll (see table at foot of page)

  • After toll booth follow signs for Alicante (ignore signs for Cartagena)

  • In due course following signs for Alicante you will see Alicante/Aeropuerto signs; follow these onto AP-7 going north

  • Continue until airport exit (junction 784)

Important Footnote
Several new motorways have opened recently in the vicinity of Mazarron Country Club:

  • Mazarron-Totana motorway (RM-3) - opened summer 2007
    This new motorway, which joins with the existing A7 motorway at Totana, is now open; it runs directly past the main entrance to Mazarron Country Club with the existing MU603 regional route becoming a feeder-road alongside parts of the new motorway. Diagrams of the new layout as it affects MCC are available here, within the website.
  • Alhama de Murcia-[A-30]Cartagena motorway (RM-2) and the RM-23 feeder motorway - both opened summer 2008
    The RM-2 runs from Alhama de Murcia and ends when it joins the A-30 Murcia/Cartagena motorway. The RM-23 acts as a feeder motorway between the RM-3 north of Mazarron and ends when it joins the RM-2 just south of Alhama de Murcia.
Selected toll costs for the Cartagena-Vera extension of Autopista AP7
(Toll rates from 1JAN18 [toll-fees have been increased by almost 2% from the rates for 2017, after two years of smaller decreases, using a formula agreed in 2002]; toll rates are usually revised at the start of each calendar year)

  • You can download the full tariff for 2017 from the Aucosta website here (.PDF document), the tariff for 2018 not yet having been uploaded, but you can see the tariff for 2018 in the website of the Spanish Ministry of Development 'Fomento' here (and for the whole of Spain here by clicking on the link for the specific route tariff you wish to see).
  • There are discounts for regular users in possession of a travel card, with greater discounts based on frequency of travel.
  • It is much cheaper to travel between 1am and 7am, possibly useful for commercial traffic; not so for people such as me.

PS/ Naturally the above table addresses AP-7 tolls only over the Cartagena-Vera extension; however, I have written a post in my 'blog' which gives motorway toll information in both Spain and France, for journeys from Channel ports to the Murcia region of Spain in 2007 and 2008 which may be useful for those planning similar journeys in future.
