Transport from airport

I always have a hard time finding anything a second time on the forums. TA has a lousy search. Somewhere I read that a certain company is safe/good to use to get to Secrets Maroma. Please tell me the name of the transport from and to the hotel. thank you in advance

If you go to a larger root forum, such as the Playa del Carmen or Cancun ones, and check out the Top Questions box on the right, you'll find a link (often several links) that will give you the information you seek.

That said, there are many safe and reliable companies that offer transfer services. I've personally used USA Transfers, Cancun Valet and Dream Days (Escalade service) before and would highly recommend all of them.

Canada Transfers is a new company that's getting great reviews and is usually a few dollars cheaper than the competition while offering a few nice extras such as cold towels ant $1 pre-ordered beer.

CARM is also recommended by many, including Mapchick, a very frequent traveller to the area.

Here are some links to start you off:

http://www.usa-transfers.com/

http://www.cancunvalet.com/

http://www.dreamdays.com/

www.cancunandrivieramaya.com/transfers/

http://www.canadatransfers.com/transfers/

All the foregoing are private transfers. For shared transfers check out Best Day - http://www.bestday.com/Transfers/Cancun/

Since it's just going to be the two of us, we were thinking about just grabbing a cab outside the airport to get to our hotel (hate to share a van and make three different stops before getting to our hotel).

Does anyone know what it costs to take a cab from the airport to the Catalonia Playa Maroma?

Thanks,

Beechluvr: Have you every taken a cab from the airport - they are more expensive than a private reserved van

Here is an FAQ on types of transfers on many of the trusted types of transportation

Costs will likely be half of what I stated (which is for Akumal)

Thank you all for your help. We just got back. Used USA transfer and there was no problem. They were on time to take us back to the airport.

So I'm getting a price of $60 for a one way transportation from the airport to Catalonia Privileged Maroma on Cancun Shuttle - $104 roundtrip.

Is it cheaper to take a taxi? I can't believe that a taxi would be more than $60 one way.

Beechluver - check out some other transfer companies as the price you've been quoted by Cancun Shuttle sounds high.

For two adults, Canada Transfers wants $75 round trip and USA Transfers are $80 round trip for up to three people.

Taking a taxi FROM the airport is a bad idea as it will cost you MORE than a private transfer. For the trip back to the airport when it's time to come home, a taxi may save you a few bucks but many people (myself included) just book a private transfer company for the round trip.

You pay them both ways ahead of time and are confident they will handle the return trip to airport?
