Estado de Quintana Roo Transportation

  • Buses

    Cancún Transportation

    The Great Parnassusò Hotel is located at the distance about 4km from the downtown part of which is known as "El Centro". I used to walk there but preferred to come back by bus. There is a public transit bus system, servicing the hotel zone. It seemed extremely cheap for me. You can watch my 3 min 29 sec Video Cancun Walk along the Hotel's Area ...

  • Colectivos

    Playa del Carmen Transportation

    If you want to visit Tulum or Cancun from Playa, you can take a colectivo which is a small minibus. There is no schedule, they leave when they are full. It's 30 pesos to Tulum, 20 to Puerto Aventuras or Cenotes. They leave from Calle 2 between 15 & 20, across from the park. If you are hungry before or after your trip, see my recommendation for a...

  • Taxi's

    Cancún Transportation

    The airport is located around 20 km (12 mi) from the hotel zone, approximately a 20 minute trip by car. From Cancún Airport: take the main exit road and follow the signs to the Hotel Zone. This road becomes Kulkulcan Boulevard. Proceed straight until kilometer marker 17. Turn left and then right into the Golf course. You can watch my 3 min 20...

  • Ferries to Cozumel

    Playa del Carmen Transportation

    As of December 2013, price on either ferry is 312 pesos round trip (currently $26US), they take Mexican or US Cash Ferries run from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel on the hour but not every hour so make sure to catch the return times. The two competing companies, Ultramar and Mexico Water Jets, have booths right across from each other in both Playa...

  • Rent a Car

    Cancún Transportation

    This location is off airport, I wasn't greeted at the airport, and need to engage a local police officer to figure out how to get them to come pick me up at the airport. Then I was charged 200% of the quoted rate but it was midnight and I still had to get 2 kids over an hour away so I had not choice but to accept the increase at the time and try to...

  • Buses

    Playa del Carmen Transportation

    The central bus station is situated on Fifth Avenue close to the Main Plaza and ferry pier. It's here you can catch frequent buses to the airport and to Cancun. Regular buses also depart here to many of the nearby tourist attractions such as Tulum, Chichen Itza and Coba. These can provide a cheaper alternative to going on an organised tour.

  • Flying to-from

    Cancún Transportation

    So my trip to Mexico came to its end. I left my hotel in Cancun at 15.00 and got home in Moscow at 2.30 the day after tomorrow after 26,5 hours trip. 1st flight: Cancun- Mexico-City by “Aeromexico” 1700km. 2nd flight: Mexico-City – Amsterdam by KLM 9200km. 3rd flight: Amsterdam – Moscow by “Aeroflot” 2500km. In total 13400km. 14,5 hours in flights...

  • Taxis

    Playa del Carmen Transportation

    If you like your Taxi driver, get his phone number so you can call him when ever you need him. This way you are familiar with who you will be dealing with. I do not recommend a rent a car because you most likely will get charged an outrageous amount for gas. NEVER travel alone... Always travel in groups around their. Never use your credit card if...


    Driving at night is.....driving @ night!If you feel comfortable driving at night wherever you live, you should be fine in Mexico. Use your common sense. Know your car. Don't drink.Watch out for pedestrians and for sometimes drunk pedestrians.Be kind to other drivers.Slow down a bit.

  • $$$ Highway

    The highway between Cancun and Merida is the fastest way between those two towns. It is -long, -boring - there is nothing but jungle on both sides, -expensive - even if you make your $$$ outside of Mexico-safe - the opposite direction lines are separated from you with pretty dense jungle so no worry about head on collision. There are some local...

  • Traveling by bus

    In my opinion the best way to travel through the Yucatan Peninsula and Quintana Roo State (if you can't rent a car) is Autobuses de Oriente (ADO) or Omnibus Cristobal Colon (OCC) .They offer "Servicio de Primera" (first class service) beetween the main cities in Yucatan Pensinsula and the rest of southeastern Mexico.The buses are comfortable, they...

  • Going up and down the highway in...

    Traveling by colectivo is by far the best deal offered on the Riviera Maya. For 20 pesos or US$2.00 (both currencies are accepted) you can travel anywhere along Highway 307 between Tulum and Playa del Carmen. If you're staying at a big resort, you'll see colectivos waiting at the main entrance (on the highway). All you have to do is tell them where...

  • Driving on the Mian Hwy from Cancun to...

    A local gave me the rules of the road for the main hwy (307) that goes from Cancun south to Tulum just in case I decided to drive. I found these tips helpful if not life saving:1) If someone wants to pass you must pull over on the shoulder.2) If you don't pull over to the shoulder the person still has the option of pulling into the oncoming traffic...

  • Plane

    Mexico is a very big country, and if you plan to do a lot of travelling you should consider taking a plane at least once. The bus from Playa del Carmen to Mexico City takes 24 hours and the plane takes 2 hours. When we checked the price on planetickets there was no doubt which of these two we would take. 24 hours on bus for 500 pesos or 2 hours on...

  • Ferry

    Ferries takes you from Playa del Carmen and out to the island of Cozumel, or from Cancun to Isla Mujeres. The ride to Cozumel takes about half an hour, and costs 10-15 USD for a roundtrip. To Isla Mujeres it's cheaper and it takes about 15 minutes. The ferries to Cozumel goes almost every hour, but they will usually give you a timetable when you...

  • Take the bus

    Bus is the best way to get around Quintana Roo. They are quite frequent and they are also very cheap. They come in all ranges from deluxe buses to small, bumpy buses. From Playa del Carmen it's just one hour on the bus to Cancun in the north, one hour to Tulum in the south, about four hours to the border between Mexico and Belize, three hours to...

  • Ferry to Cozumel

    You can take the fast waterjet passenger ferry from Playa del Carmen in about 30 minutes. They are scheduled to run about every two hours from dawn to dusk. The boats have air-con and offer soft drinks, beer and snacks.

  • They go on bike or food we went by Van

    We had to drive a long way first to come to Coba and then about 1 hour or a bit more to end up through the jungle with the Mayans.And what was our surprise.... infront of the house was a real BIKE.It seems that just like in Cuba, the Chinese had send these Bikes over so the people could be more productive and see more of their own...

  • Getting there and around

    There is an early bus out of Valladolid that goes to Tihosuco. From Tihosuco, one can grab a collectivo to Felipe Carrillo Puerto.
