Best Day Transfers:Shared Van, 1 person, taxes and fees included $16usd;
Private Van with wi-fi, 1-9 people, taxes included, $57usd

Canada Transfers: Private Regular Vehicle, 1-3 people, before taxes, $50usd
Private Van, 8-10 people, $83usd, taxes included

Or just take the ADO bus with wi-fi for about $10usd, taxes included
absoluteAL, we have a friend coming to Playa for the first time and he will be landing at T4. Does Best Day service T4? Also, the website uses a pick the drop off location and it won't take our condo location. Is there a Best Day sales location in Playa?

A little cool out there this morning for your walk!

Mur, I am sure they are at T4 also. Best Day is a big company. Best Day had/has (?) an office in the Royal on Constituyentes. I always book on their internet website. As far as a drop off, just put in a nearby hotel and I am sure the driver will drop them off anyplace nearby.....and tell them do forget the propina!

Been out walking already..........in sweatpants and sweatshirt!

See you at Lido's this afternoon?

Did that trip once. ADO to Cancun and Taxi to IM ferry pier. Might be a better way but that is how it went down. Reverse on the way back.

What I did was send my friends a pic of the condo and the avenue and streets it is between. They will drop at the door. They may have a listing for just condo or house or private condo that would work.

We are taking transfer from airport to Puerto Juarez (ferry terminal to Isla Mujeres) just so we can go straight to Isla after flying all day. We will likely take the ADO from Cancun to PDC because we have lots of time.
Here is the answer to your question.
PDC to Puerto Juarez is $73 usd for 1-3 persons and $83.00usd for 4-7.
If you are flying home after Isla Mujeres I would use a transfer just so you can go straight to the airport.
It is $32 usd or $37 usd from Puerto Juarez to the Airport.

Definitely much less to take the ADO to Cancun then taxi to ferry vs the private transfer.
For 2 people you are approx 75 pesos each (5.00 CDN) for the ADO then a short 5-10 minute taxi to the ferry. I can't recall the taxi fare as it has been awhile, but maybe 100 pesos ?

Well done! thanks for the tips.Since we got time and its our 7 th time in the riviera maya area,ado buse and taxi to puerto juarez seems to be a new adventure that we will try. cheers!

P.S. We got both a medium size suitcase and one travel bag each.Is it well manageable for this journey?
