Cheap alternative from Playacar to Cancun?

We normally stay at Playacar/Playa del Carmen. We take the ADO bus form airport and just take a short taxi cab from 5th to the resort. Last vacation, we did 1 week in Playacar and than another week in Cancun Zona Hotelera. Shuttles are expensive so we did the ADO to Cancun downtown and then taxi cab. It was difficult with a 4 yr old then and luggages to lug around.

Is there a better way but not too expensive than shuttles arranged by hotel?

Not sure what the hotel arranged transfers cost, but this is the one I use when required.

Please explain your itinerary a little better. Airport-Playa-Cancun-Airport? Or Just Playacar to Cancun Hotel Zone?

Just Playacar to Cancun Hotel Zone.

I took this picture one time as we were on our way to Cancun Hotel Zone (ADO bus took a short stop/break to pick up passengers). Unsure if they would work for us because they also pick up from the road. We'll have luggages.

I don't know what your hotel is charging you for airport shuttles, but I'm guessing there's something in it for them.

Yes. Schedule your own transfer from any of the reputable companies, such as USA Transfers, Canada Transfers, etc.

Done.
