How to Get From The Cancun Airport to Playa Del Carmen

welcome to the Cancun International

Airport you will soon be arriving in the

beautiful Riviera Maya in Mexico in this

video we'll show you how to get from the

Cancun Airport to plateau Carmen or

wherever you're staying in the Riviera

Maya we will talk about all the ground

transportation options so you can get

right to your vacation and enjoy your

time here so you're coming to Cancun

Airport and you want to know how is the

best way to get to your hotel well in

this short video we're going to tell you

the five ways which you could easily get

transportation from the penguin Airport

to where you need to go the first one is

booking and private transportation to

anywhere you need to go whether it's a

hotel or a rental now this is what most

people booked because it is the most

efficient way to get from the Cancun

Airport directly to where you need to go

these are just for your group or your

family and you can book a round-trip and

get a discount this is what the private

transfers look like from the Cancun

Airport they're a spacious fan and will

give you more space than a taxi also

your driver will meet you at the exit of

the terminal and take you to your van

there are also luxury private transfers

available from the airport and handicap

vans also in our article we'll have a

link to the best recommended private

transportation company that you could

use your trip here to the Riviera Maya


number two is the audio bus this is the

only public bus that services the Cancun

Airport they mainly have service to

downtown Cancun for tamales and Plato


there are infrequent buses also directed


now these buses are very cost effective

if you're traveling by yourself or on a

budget and staying near the bus station

however the audio bus does not stop

along the highway at individual hotels

and in our article we'll have detailed

instructions as to how to take the audio

bus and some important tips the audio

bus leaves from all four terminals of

the Cancun International Airport and

leaves about every 30 minutes for

destinations to Cancun and Plato Carmen

you can purchase your tickets at the

exit of each terminal or you can also

purchase them on the platform at a stand

the bus tickets are timed so we don't

recommend buying them ahead of time at

the airport you can use pesos credit

card or small bills of US dollars if

you're taking the bus from the Cancun

Airport to Playa del Carmen you will

arrive at the Juarez and 5th Avenue bus

station this is the only stop and flight

Oh Carmen the number 3 option is if

you're staying an all-inclusive hotel

sometimes they have buses it will pick

you up and you can include

transportation in your package now this

can be very convenient but you might

have to wait when you get here to

airport because the bus is often or for

50 people or 60 people

and you have to wait for everyone to get

through security and customs so in this

case you also could just book a private

transportation and go straight to your

hotel and that way when you get to your

hotel you're not with a group of people

they're all checking at the same time

another thing to consider if you're

taking the hotel transportation is the

return to the Cancun Airport often the

return to the airport is with a group of

people leaving at multiple times so this

might put you at the airport an hour or

two before you need to be there this is

where you might just want to take a

private transfer to save some time on

your vacation the fourth option is car

rental there's many cars for rental at

the airport and if you're going to be

staying and doing a little adventure and

driving on your own this can be a good

option to get to and from the airport

check out our guide on our website for

driving in Mexico for important tips for

your vacation number five is a taxi or

uber now we have to say uber does not

operate currently in the Riviera Maya so

this is not an option from the Cancun

Airport taxis are not an option of

course when anybody flies into an

airport they want on maybe just hop in a

taxi taxis from the Cancun Airport might

not be the best option for you for

several reasons the first reason is

there's no set prices on taxis and taxes

do not have meters nor are there boots

where you can buy tickets so the prices

are open to negotiation and that's kind

of hard when you land and you don't want

to have to negotiate a price like any

airport in the world it can be a little

confusing after a long flight being

asked by many people about

transportation options it's very nice to

have a pre booked transfer waiting for

you at the airport

so you can go right to your hotel


second you can't get a round-trip

discount because you'll be taking

different taxis so with the private

transportation you can get a round-trip

discount and so this is a much better

option because you can pay in advance

you have several methods of pain and

you're bilingual driver it is important

to take note of some of the

transportation times from the Cancun


for example to the hotel zone in Cancun

it is about 20 to 30 minutes from the

Cancun Airport to Plato Carmen it is

about 50 minutes and to Tulum about one

and a half hours

we hope whatever method you choose to

get from the Cancun Airport to Plato

Carmen or wherever you're staying that

you have a great vacation in the Riviera


this area of Mexico is a wonderful place

to come and visit for your vacation it's

also great to get out and explore the

natural area of the Riviera Maya and the

Yucatan Peninsula

there's cenotes eco parks Mayan ruins

and so much more we have dozens of

guides on our website to help you find

the best of everything and how to get

every where you want to go so we will

see you online
