Explore all the transportation options and information on how to get from Cancun to Playa del Carmen. Including the very best-rated shuttle from Cancun to Playa del Carmen. When you travel to Riviera Maya, including Tulum and the all-inclusive resorts you will be landing at the CUN airport. From there you will have a few options to travel to your final destination. You can take a bus from ADO, a Cab, a shared shuttle or a private shuttle. The later, being the very best option for many different reasons.
First, lets explore the bus: If you are on a budget and you are traveling by your self, the bus will probably be the most sensible way to get to your final destination. Be prepared to have some waiting time before you board the bus, and a longer travel time. In addition to that, once you get to the destination bus station, unless your Hotel or stay is within a short walking distance, you will most probably need to take a cab. The bus is around 65 pesos, and then you will take a cab for about 80 to 120 pesos depending on where you are going. Book and ADO Bus here.
Next, lets explore the option of taking a Cab. From the airport you would exit to the public transportation and take a cab from there. The cost will be around $100 USD and fits a total of 4 people and limited luggage. This is by far the most expensive option, and also with limited space.
Now, lets get to the shuttles. There is two kind. There is a shared shuttle and also a private shuttle option. The big difference is that with the shared shuttles you are paying per person, and they will make many stops along the way. To get a shared shuttle, you simply exit the airport and they will be right there. The cost will be around $30 usd per person.
On the other hand, you have the private shuttle, where you pay by the van instead of by person. And you get the whole van to your self, and no stops in between. Also, you can fit up to 8 people in the van for a flat fee with luggage. If you are traveling with 2 or more people, the private shuttle makes the most sense. And if you have even more people, then the less expensive it will be. In addition to that, when you book a shuttle from cancun to playa del carmen, you will have a driver waiting for you as soon as you exit the airport. The cost of a private shuttle is only $69. If you have two or more people, it makes much more sense to just take a private shuttle form Cancun to your final destination in Playa del Carmen, Tulum or anywhere in between.
We recommend booking a cancun airport shuttle online as a round trip in order to save even more. This is a door to door service with no stop in between, and just for you. This is by far the most convenient and safe way to travel between the Cancun Airport and your final destination in Playa del Carmen, Tulum and anywhere in between.
