Transportation from Cancun Airport to the Grand Mayan?

What's the best way to get from the airport to the Grand Mayan? Can anyone suggest an honest cab driver? or, is it better to rent a car? I was told that the Grand Mayan is out there in the middle of nowhere.

We were there last year, and Grand Mayan is away from things. we rented car for 3 days, mostly to drive to Chichen Itza. but insurance was so high we turned it in. and took collectivos (bus) then. they come by Grand Mayan pretty ooften on highway, and resort has shuttle to get you to bus stop. but by then we had learned how they work. 5th trip to Mexico so have used the bus system before, though first time on Caribbean side

we prefer to eat in room and Grand Mayan rooms have full kitchen, but closest grocery is 5 kms and 15 mins away. glad we had car to get our initial supplies because collectivos got pretty packed. small store at resort had limited selection and was expensive.

Not quite for sure where the Grand Mayan is at but I have been to the Rivera Maya before and have used Cancun Express, they go down there also. You can get a private car round trip transfer for around 80 to 100 dollars check out thier website and it will show you. You can view other transfers and info on tours and info at gocancun.com or cancunexpress.com. Also for alot of Rivera Maya info can be found at locogringo.com. You can actually see an ariel view of your hotel. Have fun it sure is beautiful down there. Monica

We stayed at the Mayan Palace for a week this past February which is on the same property of the Grand Mayan. It is located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen; closer to PDC. It is about 15-20 minutes drive to downtown Playa. We loved our stay there and just used taxis or cabs to get to downtown. From the airport, I'd suggest Best Day travel. They do make other stops for other people; however you can pay more to have a private drive. I believe thier website is bestdaytraveldotcom We will use them again this coming February- 5 weeks from today!!! The property is large, but we enjoyed it; including the walks to the pool. Have a great trip!
