How to get to Puerto Morelos from Cancun?

Puerto Morelos is a charming town located 30 km south of Cancun, just 20 km from Cancun International Airport. Famous for its reef, its tranquility, its excellent atmosphere and delicious typical food of the Mexican Caribbean.

Moving from the city of Cancun to anywhere in the Riviera Maya is relatively simple and there are several options for the great diversity of travelers who visit these magical destinations.

Transfers in ADO buses, along with collective vans, are the most popular means among Quintana Roo residents. This is due to the affordable price and the good connectivity of this medium. They are usually punctual, safe, and more comfortable than collective vans, in general, they are an excellent option to go to Puerto Morelos from Cancun.

The ADO bus stations are located in strategic points in the state of Quintana Roo, and connect downtown Cancun with the airport and, basically, any destination you want to travel to in the Yucatan Peninsula.

The central station is located in the center of Cancun, (Pino Street, between Tulum and Uxmal avenues); and there are other ticket offices inside the Cancun International Airport.

You can purchase your ADO bus tickets through the official website or directly at the ticket offices, before midnight.

Payments can be made with your credit or debit card; unlike collective vans, which charge cash and pay directly to the driver.

You can make your payment in dollars or Mexican pesos; We recommend that you do it in Mexican pesos so that you do not spend more with the currency exchange.

Course specifications:

  • - The distance between Cancun and Puerto Morelos is 25 kilometers and the duration of the journey is between 35 minutes and 45 minutes.
  • - The cost of the trip is approximately MXN 110 (USD 5.5).
  • - Other local bus companies offer the same service and the same routes for a lower cost. However, ADO is more secure, comfortable, and reliable.
  • - The ADO company does not charge extra charges for overweight luggage, great news if you are looking to save your expenses!

Another alternative to get to Puerto Morelos from Cancun are the groups of the local companies Playa Express and the Foreign Collective Service. They are vans, which resemble a minibus, where 15 passengers can fit (counting the driver) and operate several routes constantly, both during the day and at night.

This means of transport is the most used by locals in the area, since it is quite effective to travel to their work areas at a low cost, and due to the large number of stops on the routes. It is a practical and safe transport although less comfortable than the ADO buses. The Playa Express service is operated by a private company while the Foreign Collective Service is provided by a taxi drivers union.

It is a practical choice; however, it is not as comfortable as ADO buses, and accidents tend to occur periodically, due to drivers not respecting traffic signs, speed limits, and maximum passenger capacity; serious problem in times of pandemic.

Between the two companies, the safest are the Playa Express vans. But if you are going to travel at night, you can only use the Foreign Collective Service since it is the only one that makes the journey from Cancun to Tulum at night.

There are several areas where you can make the bus stop. In Cancun you can take the service near the ADO station; and in Playa del Carmen, the stop is very close to Fifth Avenue.

Do not worry! Here you will find the exact addresses:

  • - Playa Express:
    • Cancun: In front of the ADO bus terminal.
    • Playa del Carmen: street 2 with avenue 20.
  • - Groups of the Foreign Collective Service:
    • Cancun: Avenida Tulum, next to the ADO Bus terminal and the “La Comercial Mexicana” shopping center.
    • Playa del Carmen: street 2 with avenue 20 and avenue 25.

Course specifications:

  • - The duration of the journey is between 40 minutes to an hour; It will depend on the number of stops that the same passengers ask the driver before arriving at the stop in Puerto Morelos.
  • - In the transfer on the federal highway, there are no designated or established stops, local people stand on the side of the road and the drivers already know that they are waiting to be picked up to go somewhere; the wait used to take between 10 to 30 minutes; however, with the pandemic, those times have doubled.
  • - Foreign Collective Services vans circulate every day, 24 hours a day, regardless of holidays.
  • - The price ranges from MXN 35 to MXN 40 each way, that is, between USD 1.75 to USD 2, it is paid in cash and directly to the driver; to whom you have to tell where you are going so that he knows how much to charge you; If you are not easily located, ask the driver to notify you when you arrive at your destination.

If you plan to visit various points of the Riviera Maya and the Yucatan Peninsula in a freer and private way, without worrying about departure times or buying tickets, renting a car is an excellent option.

The highways of the state of Quintana Roo, as well as the route from Cancun to Puerto Morelos, are in good condition. And the signs are clear enough so that you can easily reach your destination.

Many companies provide this service, and you could do online research to choose the one that best suits your needs; or evaluate the options found within the Cancun International Airport.

However, we recommend that you book your rental online and in advance; to make the process faster and ensure a lower rate.


  • - Whether you are Mexican or foreign, you will need an official ID, a valid driver's license, and a credit card to be able to rent a car.
  • - Rental prices range from MXN 400 to MXN 2,100 per day, an approximate of USD 20 to USD 100.
  • - Apart from the maps of your GPS on your Smartphone, we recommend that you request the maps with the most famous or recognized sites in the area, this will help you locate and/or ask for recommendations.

Among all the options to get to Puerto Morelos from Cancun, perhaps the least recommended is to travel by taxi. Unfortunately, the costs are very high and there appears to be no set base rate, meaning the price may vary depending on the driver.

However, traveling by taxi is still very common for many travelers, and sometimes even more comfortable and simple; since you do not have to pay anything or make a prior reservation.

Taxis are always outside the airport, ready to take you to your destination!


  • - Inside the Airport, there are exclusive companies that will take you to any destination, however, you will not be able to take a local taxi service from the city of Cancun.
  • - The approximate cost ranges from MXN 900 to MXN 1,500, in dollars, it would be around USD 45 to USD 75.
  • - You can pay for your transfer from the airport to Puerto Morelos with a credit or debit card.

Bad scheduling and impossible to contact them to make changes.
- 14 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Puerto Morelos

The pickup at the airport went very well. As soon as we walked out of the airport the driver was there with a sign. He called the van and we were on our way to the resort at playa del carmen. The problem was our last day when we returned to the airport. The day before we took a cab to Cancun. The driver asked us if we had a cab for airport drop off and we told him that we did. He asked us if we had accounted for road construction that was going on and the volume of people at the airport. Happy shuttles had only planned for 2.5hrs, which after doing some research was not enough. We tried to contact Happy Shuttles multiple times throughout the afternoon and evening the day before the pickup day and they never answered and we couldn't even leave a message. Their webpage also has the option to text them but they have a 24hr policy to return a text message. Therefore we contacted another shuttle company to pick us up 4 hrs before the flight and even with 4hrs we only had about 15 min at the gate before we boarded. If we would have stayed with Happy Shuttle we would have missed our flight. In summary, there were two problems. First, happy shuttles askes when you fly out and they schedule the pickup based on that information. They were way off. Second, when we tried to contact them multiple times, over several hours timeframe, they never picked up.

Great Private Transportation
- 21 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Puerto Morelos

I gave Happy Shuttle 4 stars and not 5 only because my best friend and I had to wait about 20mins for our private shuttle van. A representative from Happy Shuttle was located at the airport and had nformed us that our van was running late. When our private shuttle van arrived, our driver was very nice, talkative, and helpful! On departure date, Happy Shuttle was on TIME!!!! Our driver got us to the airport early and again was very professional! I would definitely use Happy Shuttle again when visiting Mexico!!
