There are several ways to get to the ferry. Whichever
way you choose, once in Cancun, head to Puerto Juarez, which
is both an area of town as well as the name of one of the docks. The
other dock is named Gran Puerto.
- Airport Shuttles: At Cancun International Airport,
the airport shuttles (located outside of baggage claim) are
very reliable and reasonably priced (usually $12 USD per person). The
shuttles will escort you to Puerto Juarez. A shared shuttle
will be much cheaper but will take longer. Puerto Juarez is
the last stop, and you will get a tour of the Cancun Hotel
Zone as other passengers will be dropped off before you. Travel
time ranges from 60-90 minutes. Cost: $12 US per person (or
more) and can be paid in US dollars.
- Public Taxis: An alternative to a shuttle is
a quick cab ride. All the cabs leaving Cancun International
Airport belong to one company, which means they are safe and
have fixed prices. Just tell the driver where you’re
headed and how many people are in your party. A private
taxi will cost approximately $57 USD to get to the ferry. Travel
time is about 30 minutes. This is the easiest and fastest way
to get to the ferry.
- Private Van: You can also arrange for a private van
to take you and your group directly to the ferry dock.
- Buses: When you leave the terminal at Cancun International
Airport, walk directly to your right and follow the sidewalk
along the departures section until you come to the end. There
you’ll find comfortable, air conditioned buses run by
ADO. Costs are very low. The bus will drop you
off at the bus station in downtown Cancun. From there
you can take a taxi to the dock or walk out and wait for another
bus to Puerto Juarez.
Once at Puerta Juarez, there are several express services currently
serving the island. Detailed schedules and fares can be
