Can I get a taxi from the Cancun Airport to Riviera Maya? NO, you cannot simply walk out of the Cancun airport terminal and find taxis for hire. Taking a taxi from the Cancun airport is a big risk and it is definitely NOT the best way to enjoy a stress-free travel day. You run the risk of being overcharged by shady taxi drivers who are unlicensed and uninsured. You could take the bus but the ADO bus from Cancun Airport does not run 24/7 and will only bring you as far as the bus stops in a handful of Riviera Maya towns. From there you will need to get to your Riviera Maya accommodations with a local taxi. If you are unfamiliar with the Riviera Maya it can be super stressful. Booking pre-paid private transportation to the Riviera Maya lets you enjoy a comfortable ride at a great price, let the experts do the driving and get you right to the door of your Riviera Maya accommodations.

Where to stay in the Riviera Maya is up to you, your style and your budget, from shared hostels to exclusive and luxurious resorts and boutique hotels. The Riviera Maya is the ideal place to stay to explore the world of the ancient Maya and walk in the footsteps of a fascinating civilization, a visit to Chichen Itza or Tulum Mayan ruins is an absolute must.
