In general you should tip your Cancun shuttle driver 50 pesos per person on board. That’s about $2.50 USD but please remember that it is best to use the local currency of pesos for tipping! Change from other countries cannot be exchanged here in Mexico so US coins are a big no. You can absolutely tip in dollars, but stick to paper denominations, no coins please!

Tipping your Cancun shuttle driver for superior service above and beyond

Trusted Customer - 6 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Emporio Cancun

Very happy. We did the round trip. Pickup was smooth. We didnt plan too well on the return trip and traffic was bad so we had to walk/run the last 0.5 mile to catch our plane. Driver was very reasonable and chatty. Would use again.

Safe & reliable

LARRY LARRY - 8 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Isla Mujeres Ferry

I called to book shuttle service from the cancun airport to the ferry to cozumel round trip. The shuttle came about 40 minutes after we got through customs and drove us to the ferry. When we got on the other side and asked to taxi driver to take us to the address we then found out they had taken us to Isla Mujeres and not cosumel. We had to pay $130 for a hotel. another $100 for a taxi to take us to the Cozumel ferry and then another $80 for ferry tickets. I called you guys and they had booked us to go to Isla mujers and not cozumel like I originally requested. Then when I told them to change the pick up point to the cozumel ferry they charged me another $79 dollars and had no concerns that your company had made this mistake. So all in all I lost a whole day of my vacation, and had to pay $389 extra for your mistake. So needless to say I am not happy with your company.,
