ADO bus from cancun to Playa

by sablemorgans

How late do these buses run? Our flight came in at 10:30pm and by the time we cleared customs it was after 11pm. We had a hotel transfer but on our next trip we are planning on not doing an all inclusive trip.

Thanks!

I've never tried taking the bus but I have booked a non all inclusive vacations and had the hotel arrange for a transfer, I'm sure most if not all of the hotels would be happy to do that for you. This website makes it look like they don't run that late. Even if you come in earlier, do you really want to wait for an hour for a bus and then have to figure out how to get from the bus station to your hotel?

There will be Greenline vans available for less than taxis. If there are 3 people a taxi may be about the same rate.
You can google Ado and look at their schedule.
The site Kristi has posted is a great option

ADO does not have buses that late according to their website.
there may still be vans going from the bus station but it's not certain. why don't you ask your hotel if they are available? if they aren't a taxi will still likely be less than the asking transfer price.

The answer is that, as of today, the last bus of the evening is 22:15. The cost is 90 pesos per person ($5.90 at 15.2/1 today). Make sure you get pesos as they also charge 9 dollars for the trip.
You can check the schedule at www.ticketbus.com.mx
If you arrive after 10:00 pm, an alternative is to take a bus into Cancun and then a bus into Playa. It adds about half an hour to the trip, but is a little cheaper (78 pesos).

Travel Tips for Playa del Carmen

Flaming coffee

by kyoub

You must have some flaming spanish coffee while you are in Playa.
I think most of the restaurants have their own version of this show.
It is the finale after dinner. Three guys pour the coffee from one han held pot to the other.
Even if you don't like coffee this is a must see, at least once while you are there.

The jungle

by Joan58

Take a walk through the wild jungle... I'm just kidding. This is a little path in the holiday village where I've been. The jungle can be dangerous... there are many venomous snakes and spiders ( I hate spiders!!).

Vacation packages

by Dabs

I've found that the best deals for Mexico (and most beach destinations) from Chicago and many other US cities is to book a package that includes airfare, hotels and transfers to and from the airport.

The two companies from Chicago that used to do it the best were Apple Vacations and FunJet. I have used both several times with no problems. The last three times I've used Expedia and Orbitz who contract locally through Best Day tours and Grayline for their transportation and tours.

Downsides to using package tours? No major ones but you do have to wait at the airport until they have rounded everyone up delaying your beach vacation for a bit. And they seem to take you to the airport awfully early but if you want to pay a few extra $$$ you can just tell them that you're arranging for your own transfer.

Sometimes you will get on a charter flight and the planes are not the most comfortable but I can endure anything for 3 1/4 hours (well, maybe not the kid that was screaming and kicking the back of my chair).

Funjet can either be booked with a travel agent or online at www.funjet.com. Apple Vacations, although it looks like you can book online, can only be booked through a travel agent. The website at www.applevacations.com can be frustratingly slow. Expedia and Orbitz packages can be booked online or via the phone, I found slightly cheaper prices by picking up the phone and talking to an agent.

Explore the rest of the city

by Maria_75

Many of the restaurants located along 5ta Avenida is quite expencive. If you go to the sidestreets or a few blocks away you can find many nice and small restaurants. The best is that they are much cheaper than many of the ones in the touriststreet. We found a great little restaurant in a sidestreet, but I can't remember the name of it. The chickens were running around on the floor, so your meat was quite fresh... ;) We bought a big seafood plate which normally is quite expencive. But at this place we paid the same for two as we did for one on 5ta Avenida! And the food tasted delicious!

The ruins at Tulum

by clairegeordio

We went to Tulum as an excursion combined with Xel-Ha through our hotel rep, which seemed to be the way most people visited it. From Playa Del Carmen the journey took just over half an hour.
Tulum is a Mayan fortress city overlooking the Carribean with it's beautiful powder white sandy beach. Tulum was most prominent in the 13th Century when it was a seaport. The site of Tulum is fairly small, but very impressive with the contrast of the ruins against the backdrop of the sea,set on 15m high cliffs.
The main ruins you can see are the Temple of the Frescoes, the Castillo and the Temple of the Winds, the latter perching over the water and was said to serve as a warning system for hurricanes. Tulum has many altars and shrines and was a centre of worship.
You are not able to climb any of the ruins due to the damage that could be done.
