Thank You Happy Shuttle

Our experience with Happy Shuttle was great. From our pickup & drop off at our condo, the service was great. Thank you for providing a great service at a reasonable price.

This was our 1st vacation to Cozumel. My husband and I had a long trip with several delays, when the driver got us to Playa del Carmen, he went the extra mile and walked us to the ferry! We were so tired and disoriented we probably would have missed the ferry if it were not for happy shuttle. On the way back I did not realize the ferry schedules were different than what I read online. Our flight was at noon and with traffic and construction we could have missed our flight. Our driver was waiting for us 10 minutes early and got us to the airport in record time. We have used Happy Shuttle over 8 times and every experience has been positive.

I had minimal wait time at the airport for my ride to be ready, and the Happy Shuttle people were easy to find outside. Car was clean, driver was friendly, and my ride had no problems. Got me right to where I needed to be safely. As a woman traveling alone, I felt safe knowing had a reliable ride.
