  5. I am a solo traveller and Im trying to find a reasonable price for my transportation to playa de carmen from airport, but $60 is a lot for one way. Are there any other more reasonable options? (apart from the bus)

    • Hello Lin

      Where are you going to be going? If it is a resort, the transfers are the best option. Remember that some of the resorts are 40 minutes from the airport. This is not bad for the time it takes. The ADO bus is the cheaper option.

  6. I have been a long time reader of your website and always appreciate your suggestions. I have my transfer booked and now looking for a good place to go out to in Playa for a romantic dinner. Can you recommend some places? Thanks.
