The ADO shared service has specific departure times. If you want to economize to the maximum you can take this service. As such, it will drop you off in downtown Cancun and from there, you will have to take another bus to your hotel.

Rent a car

If you want to feel the freedom of getting to know the city, you can rent a car to get to your hotel and then go out and drive around freely. But it is worth mentioning that there are not many places to park in the hotel zone.

Transfer from the Airport to the Riviera Maya

Is your hotel located in the Riviera Maya? The Riviera Maya is made up of several regions of the state of Quintana Roo, from Isla Blanca to Punta Allen.

So, depending on how far away is the destination where your hotel is located, the transfer options from the airport are more limited, however: The ones that will always be present are: Private Transfer and ADO.

Private Transfer

The private transfer service is mainly based in Cancun. This means that most companies cover the entire state of Quintana Roo. This makes it by default, the best option to go back and forth from one place to another in Cancun, the Riviera Maya and even outside of it.


Generally the ADO service offers a transfer from the Cancun airport to downtown Cancun and from here, from the same terminal you can take a transfer to other destinations. This means that you can get to the city where your hotel is located and then take another public transfer to get to your hotel.
