Gettting from Airport to Alhambra in Playa

I have always taken big bus--but this time I come with total of 4. Is it faster and about the same price to just take a cab? REgards, Scott

For other options, including the bus, just type in "airport transfer" into the search function, using the advanced option and clicking to show results as "posts."

Hmmm, Thiessen - a good southern Manitoba name . I grew up with some Thiessens in NE Montana and went to college with others in south central Kansas.

Anyway, as Heather said there are several options for transportation. The bus cost is 80 pesos per adult now. That would be about $30US total. If some of your 4 are children, their price will be less. Very young ones are usually free.

The Alhambra is walkable(5 blocks) from the bus station if you don't have a lot of luggage. Otherwise you'll need to hire a tricícolo for the luggage.

Bus is still probably cheaper, but less convenient than the van. And bus will definately NOT stop to buy some cerveza.
We had to take a van the first time since we landed after the last bus. Used Cancun Valet, it was very nice. Hadn't heard about this site at the time or we would have tried Playa Info's.
4 peeps w/ luggage would be a very tight squeeze in a Mexican cab, they are all compacts at the biggest.
