Cancun airport Bus

MapChick's famous maps & travel guides

We use this service often. It's the least expensive form of airport transportation. There are two routes:
Route #1 (see pink line at right) goes direct from the airport, north to downtown Cancun (it does not go to the beachfront hotel zone). Route #2 (see yellow line at right) goes south to Playa del Carmen. The bus makes a quick stop along a highway frontage road to drop off passengers going to Puerto Morelos.
