Assuming that is the per person cost for a round-trip ground transfer. How many in your party?

The cost for a taxi to/from the airport/Barcelo complex for 1 to 4 passengers is $600 pesos each way.

You can also pre-book with a ground transfer service such as AGI Tours for even less.

Best Day - shared transfers - $35 per person, round trip - http://www.bestday.com/Transfers/Cancun/

USA Transfers - private transfer for 1-3 people = $120; 1-7 people = $135 (both are round trip, per vehicle, not per person) - entertainment-plus.net/transfers/puerto-aven…

Other private transfer companies that you can price check would be Canada Transfers (never used them myself but they`re getting excellent reviews and their prices are usually slightly cheaper than USA Transfers), Cancun Valet, Lomas .... there are lots.

I`ve used both Cancun Valet and USA Transfers and would highly recommend either one. I`ve used Best Day as part of a vacation package (air, hotel and ground transfers) and wasn`t particularly impressed but, on the whole, other people seem to like them and for solo travellers, they`re a much more affordable option than a private transfer.

"Canada transfers > USA transfers"

Not sure what this means if it's meant to imply that they're the same company, they're not. USA Transfers is owned by a Canadian guy named Brant but Canada Transfers is a division of Comfort Travel. USA have been in business for years. We only started hearing about Canada Transfers comparitively recently - as in, the last six months or so.

I've used both Canada and USA transfers and found that the child seats with Canada transfers were newer and felt safer than the ones we got with USA transfers. This is important to us as the drive from the airport is not a short one. Also the free water / cold facecloth / beers at $1 each are a great touch. We also got a great price when we booked (107$ for 6 passengers to Barcelo Palace) but I believe that the prices have since gone up.

@ VSD - yeah, that's kinda what I thought but without explanation, it didn't really make much sense.

@ MKmont - thanks for the clarification; now post #6 makes a lot more sense to me.
