How much does it cost to get from Cancun airport to Riviera Maya?

Getting from the Cancun Airport to Riviera Maya costs from $85 USD for private transportation. The price of getting to Riviera Maya from the airport will depend on the location of your accommodations, hotel, resort or Airbnb. The Riviera Maya is a vacation destination of unparalleled natural beauty, reaching from Cancun in the north to Tulum in the south, roughly 100 kms of coastline and jungle.

Getting around in the Riviera Maya is made easy by the modern, four-lane 307 highway that runs north/south through the whole state of Quintana Roo all the way down to Chetumal and the border with Belize. The recent construction at the Cancun Airport is complete and the results are flowing, a much smoother experience for all travelers and drivers.

I have 20 years of experience living in Cancun and traveling through the airport. I can go on and on and on about the magic of the Mexican Caribbean, some of my top experiences in the Riviera Maya were pretty mind blowing. I love snorkeling in Puerto Morelos, going “caving” in the cenotes of the Riviera Maya, exploring the Mayan ruins of Tulum and Muyil.

I have stayed at so many Riviera Maya resorts that I can’t remember them all! Getting to hotels in the Riviera Maya can be tricky, lots of hidden roads and sometimes complicated directions to your private villas or hidden hotels. Honestly, the best way to move is with private transportation, no stress, makes me feel like a rock star every time.

Getting to Riviera Maya: A Million Reasons to Visit

Riviera Maya is a beach destination in the Mexican Caribbean that will delight anyone looking for a laid back and relaxed vacation in the sun. The Mesoamerican Reef sits just offshore making Riviera Maya the ideal place to scuba and enjoy exceptional snorkeling adventures. The nearby “cenote route” invites visitors to dive into the underworld in natural limestone sinkholes that are unique to the Yucatan Peninsula. Riviera Maya is also home to extreme adventures like ziplining over the canopy or ATV rides down challenging jungle trails.

Riviera Maya hotels run the range from economical hostels to internationally recognized luxury brand resorts. You may stay in an exclusive Riviera Maya boutique hotel on the beach or a luxurious private villa, a big resort with all the amenities or a simple, basic room to lay your head after all your adventures. A Riviera Maya vacation has it all, nature, history, culture and adventure in a peaceful Mexican Caribbean paradise.

Safety, comfort and the best price for Cancun Airport transfers to Riviera Maya

The best way to get from the Cancun airport to Riviera Maya is with a pre-arranged transfer with an experienced company like Happy Shuttle Cancun. Paying in advance means you get the best price available and have NO worries or stress when arriving in the chaotic Cancun International Airport. Your pre-paid Cancun airport transfers to Riviera Maya guarantee a safe ride will be waiting for you with licensed drivers, impeccable vehicles and the assurance that you will never face unexpected charges or fees.

Travel days are stressful enough, don’t arrive at the Cancun airport and expect to get a good price on a cab to Riviera Maya. You must remember that it is illegal to hail a taxi at the Cancun Airport and rideshare apps like Uber are not permitted. If you wait until you arrive to look for transportation to your Cancun hotel, you’ll pay an elevated rate and run the risk of getting scammed by taxis or unscrupulous companies at the Cancun airport. I sincerely do NOT recommend landing without a ride waiting, it is just an anxiety attack waiting to happen.

MICHAEL - 9 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Hotel Occidental Costa Cancun

Friendly drivers and always on time.

Know what you want before booking. Snorkeling not good, drunken co-ed vibe.
Trusted Customer - 11 days ago Cancun Catamaran Tour

The service was just fine. Everyone was very nice. However, it was definitely a "drunken co-ed" vibe, and that was just not what we were looking for. Loud music, and a guy dressed up in a bra and wig pouring shots into people's mouths on the way back. That's not our vibe, but if that's what you're looking for... The sea was quite choppy where we were let out to snorkel. Obviously, they can't control that, but it was so rough you really couldn't see anything. We were quite rushed, and they only provided masks and snorkels, no fins (they did provide life vests). I had my own equipment, including fins, and I actually had to help a lady who was starting to panic, as she was swallowing. I had to grab her and tow her in as the guides were yelling at us to hurry up. Finally a guide came back and helped. Not a super great experience. The beach club was ok. The food was mediocre, but that's to be expected. The beach area was crowded and smelled of raw sewage.
