Riviera Maya Vacation Tip – ADO, a cheap way to go

Cancun shuttle buses from the airport

Looking for the most economical way to the Riviera Maya from the Cancun Airport? ADO first class buses with air conditioning and comfortable seating run shuttle from the airport to the Playa del Carmen bus station for $120 pesos (about $10 USD) per person. You can reserve online or buy your tickets at the airport. Pros: It’s SUPER cheap. Cons: The buses have set departure times your incoming flight must coordinate with, which usually means a wait time. You will be taken to the bus station where you will then have to make your way to your hotel.

    This is a great alternative if your resort is near the bus station! My husband and I did it as complete Mexico newbies, and it was super easy. We used some of the money we saved on by skipping the private transfer for a cool drink purchased from the bar located right by the spot where the bus stops. Made our short wait for the bus fly by!
    Highly recommend.
