    You get what you pay for


    We stayed here for two nights, arriving on New Years Day. Booking through hostelbookers we paid around £7 per night for the two of us - I think it worked out as 280MXN in total.

    It is a bit run down - the paint is flaking, and the beds are quite old, but the room we stayed in was reasonably clean, as was the shared bathroom. It was about what we expected for the price. The manager was pleasant and spoke enough English that we didn't have to inflict our atrocious Spanish on him!

    It's close to the bus station and there are plenty of restaurants and bars near by. This was the cheapest place we stayed in in Mexico, and it was by no means the worst!

ADO Transportation

by tkudad

Emergency. Leaving Orange Walk, Belize to Chetamul ASAP. Is there a ADO bus, leaving Chetamul directly to the airport in Cancun, arriving at the Cancun Airport/before 1 PM daily? I am planning to catch a plane at 4:00 PM and desire to have enough time in case of delay. If you know, please provide estimated travel time from Chetamul to Airport in Cancun. Thanks

You can look directly at the ADO website:

Re: ADO Transportation

by Gatopardo gives you similar information. I found that for that trip on the 20th costs 294 pesos and it takes 5.25 hrs. It leaves at 00.30 hrs.

Appears that you have the informationyou need. I was going to give you this tip I made regarding the border crossing. It takes about 4:30 hours from Playa de Carmen to Chetumal, so to Cancun from Chetumal should be what you have already been told, - or 5:30 hours, in reverse of course. Here is th tip anyway, as you need to consider the time crossing border, specifically if you are leaving Orange Walk in a rent-a-car.

There is no Direct ADO Bus from Chetumal to Cancun Airport. You will need to get to the ADO Terminal in either Playa del Carmen or Cancun, and then catch the Bus to Terminal 2 in the airport.

If your flight leaves from one of the other Terminals (1 or 3) there's a FREE Shuttle that runs approx every 30 minutes between the terminals.

Check out and remember that the prices are in Mexican Pesos not USD.

Good Luck

Travel Tips for Cancún

Accepted currencies

by SWFC_Fan

A frequently asked question by visitors to Cancun is which currency should I take with me to Cancun?.

Well, both Mexican Pesos and US Dollars are accepted in all shops and restaurants. Neither Euros, British Pounds nor Canadian Dollars are widely accepted, but can be exchanged for Pesos easily enough in the resort.

If you are visiting from the USA, then I would suggest that you use US Dollars for most of your transactions. I would offer the following advice, though:

i) If you use US Dollars, you will use them at a marginally worse exchange rate than the official rate. For example, at the time of my visit in February 2006 the official exchange rate was 10.6 Pesos to the US Dollar. Shops and restaurants accepted payment in US Dollars at an exchange rate of 10 Pesos to the Dollar. By using Dollars, you are therefore worse off by 6%. For most purchases, this will not be a huge loss. Only if you are making large purchases worth several hundred Dollars would I suggest paying in Pesos.

ii) It would be a good idea to carry small amounts of Pesos with you. I once saw a bus driver arguing with an American tourist because he was trying to pay his bus fare in US Dollars, while the buses (I guess), must only accept Mexican Pesos. Even though this tourist had more than enough money to pay his fare, he had no Pesos at all.

If you are travelling not from the USA, then I would recommend using the numerous ATMs to withdraw Mexican Pesos as you need them.

Be careful not to change more Pesos than you need, as the exchange rate for changing Pesos back into other currencies is very unfavourable.

I would also advise against using the exchange desk in the airport arrivals hall as, again, the exchange rate is unfavourable. Instead, if you need Pesos upon arrival, go to the departures terminal and use one of the ATMs in there.

>From the air, Cancun is like a long sand strip in turquoise waters. The Nichupté laggon at one side and the Caribbean sea at the other. All that strip is full of luxury hotels and at one corner, there is the little village of Cancun (don´t expect here old cantinas, but Hard Rock & McDonalds...).

One really cool thing about Cancun and area, are the many iguanas that can be seen and most of the ones I saw were a good size. The one pictured here lived near our hotel. I got pretty close to him, but when I got too close, he disappeared into the nearby drainage pipe.

...and here are the lyrics of MACARENA in and English...
Give your body pleasure, Macarena
Because your body is for giving it pleasure and good things
Give your body pleasure, Macarena
Ehhhh, Macarena

Macarena has a boyfriend whose name is
Whose last name is Vitorino
And during his military swearing in
She got together with two of his friends
Macarena, Macarena, Macarena

Who likes the summers of Marbella
Macarena, Macarena, Macarena

Who likes the guerrila lifestyle
Macarena dreams of the Corte Inglesi§
And she likes the most recent fashions
She'd like to live in New York
And trap a new boyfriend

The heart of Cancun is El Centro.Thousands of people go here to see the shops,markets and boutiques and sample the restaurants and exotic drinks.Cancun has the second largest barrier reef in the world and i found the snorkeling amazing. Here is where the lagoon meets the sea and hotels run along the crystal clear Caribbean sea.
