What’s the best way to get around Cancun?
Buses are reliable, affordable, and run every few minutes between downtown and the hotel zone, so this is typically the easiest way to travel. Be sure to have change, as large notes can be difficult for the drivers. Some of these buses are very modern, often equipped with TV and Wi-Fi, so they can make for a very pleasant journey. Taxis are also an option, but they aren’t metered in Cancun so agree to a price you’re happy with before you get in.
