Second time using Happy Shuttle Cancun! Will definitely keep using them. Construction traffic is terrible right now on the airport highway, but their drivers were on-time picking us up, drove very safely and patiently, and had good communication skills. The company has a very fine-tuned reservation and communication system that works well. Only complaint I have is that I wish they had a discount for repeat customers.

Great Shuttle in Mexico
- 9 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Playa del Carmen

This is the shuttle to call. From the moment you leave the airport and find your shuttle coordinator you know you made the right choice. We left on time from the airport and the shuttle driver was friendly and answered all our questions about the area we were staying. When we were returning to the airport the driver was right on time and got us to the airport way ahead of time. Will definitely use them again...
