The service was prompt at the Cancun airport but the driver spoke zero English and drove so slow to our resort. Every other cars on the highway was passing us. It took us a lot longer to get to our hotel tulum hilton. However, our pick up person at the hotel showed up on time and drove in appropriate speed to take us back to the airport.

I did roundtrip airport transfer from Cancun airport to Tulum for two separate reservations in our group and they were SO PUNCTUAL!! Friendly and even offered to have us stop to get food or use the bathroom. Amazing service. This isn’t my first time using them and it definitely will not be my last.

Great shuttle service!
- 8 months ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Riviera

Happy shuttle was a great option with low fares compared to the competitors. There was great customer service before we arrived. There was a wait for the shuttle at the airport but the driver made up for it with beers. The shuttle back to the airport arrived promptly and got us back to the airport before our flight. Would use them again when I come to the area.
