Transfer or taxi from Cancun Airport to Playa Del Carmen?
So you are flying into Mexico and would like to know if a transfer or a taxi from Cancun Airport to Playa Del Carmen is better. Taxis are the usualy way people around the world get from the airport to their hotel but what about the Riviera Maya?

A taxi to Playa Del Carmen from the Cancun Airport takes 45-50 minutes. This is a lot of time in a taxi and why it cost as much as it does.
Since Cancun Airport transportation is regulated, each transport has to have a special license, and this is expensive. Normal taxis cannot pick people up at the Cancun Airport.
