Transfer Company or Taxi?

Is there any benefit to using a Transfer Service over a taxi to get from the airport to the Ferry terminal and back again? Any idea how much the taxi rate would be? Seems to me that last time we were on Isla the Taxi drivers would try to inflate the rate from the Cancun Ferry Terminal back to the airport if you didn't know what is was going in.

Yes, there is a benefit, a taxi to the ferry is very expensive, around $60usd, the taxi to the airport is not so much. Most of us use a transfer service, there are several reliable ones and all will be cheaper RT then a taxi each way. Our preferred company is CARM, $60usd RT.

You are welcome. We have used USA also but switched to CARM which is owned by a former USA employee.

Where In MI do you live by the way? Grand Rapids area here.
