BRIAN CARROLL - 9 hours ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Puerto Aventuras

We arrived at Cancun airport and were able to find Happy Shuttle located outside very easily, the rep was very polite and had our details making the transition much easier. Our shuttle was ready in 10 mins which gave us time for a nice cold beverage. Our shuttle driver to the resort was awesome and polite even when we tried our best Spanish to communicate. Our shuttle from the resort back to the airport was on time, professional and polite. Both shuttles were clean and everything we expected. Thanks Happy Shuttle!
