Playa.info Transfer-Van big enough for 9?

Booking our transportation through PI, and had originally planned on doing one 10 pax van and one 6 pax van, but we had a couple of cancellations and now only have 9 people coming.

Does anyone know if the 10 passenger van would accomodate 9 adults with luggage?

I'm assuming luggage space is considered when providing airport transportation, but just want to be sure.

(And I already sent an email...waiting to hear back. But I figured you lovely people may respond a bit quicker )

If they use the same van we had a few years back it will be tight but yes. We had 10 plus all are luggage and one of us had to sit on the floor.

we are taking a PI van from Playa to Tulum and it's a 14 passenger van (no luggage/just backpacks). that one should have plenty of room for 9 passengers with luggage.

Yes, we can accommodate 10 people. The vans hold 14 passengers, but with luggage, only 10.

Mondays are tough--anything that came in after 2 pm on Saturday is waiting for me Monday morning. I answer them in the order in which they were received--so it might take me a few hours to work through them all. Thanks for your patience.

But I guess I just answered your question already.

Oh I'm sure you are overflowing with emails after a weekend!
I figured it would take a couple of days to hear back (and it didn't even take that!). So thanks!!



I've already booked and can't wait to see our driver waiting for us

What a bummer!! My guess is that it's going to be very different kind of trip than the usual R&R vacations that Hubby & I take.

It took a couple of years to convince everyone to finally come with us, but we did it. They were probably sick & tired of being bugged about it


We started out with 12, and we're down to 9.
