Getting Around

Buses are the cheapest way to get around in Cancun. Intercity buses are available from the station on Avenida Tulum, including service to Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Merida, and Campeche.

Taxis are perhaps the most convenient transport, and tariffs are loosely based on a zone system. Fares should be agreed on upfront, and travellers should note that taxis located outside restaurants and hotels often charge higher rates. It is also important to know that only approved airport taxis are allowed to collect passengers from the airport.

Car and scooter rental are popular as well, though they're considered dangerous and only experienced drivers should attempt these options. They can also be stressful, as traffic is chaotic and police are quick to pull tourists over.
