Going from Place to Place in Mexico


Traveling to Mexico is one thing, transportation within Mexico is another. Mexico is indeed a large country and if you want to visit more than a few destinations, you will have to start thinking about the transportation options and ways to get between the destinations. Here is the complete guide to the main transportation options and ways of moving from place to place in Mexico – the Caribbean region:



Apart from your flight to Mexico itself, the most convenient and fastest way to get from place to place is definitely by domestic flight. You can cover long distances in a very short amount of time, so if you want to get somewhere quickly, you should definitely consider taking a plane. However, it is important to note that this is the more expensive way. If you are planning a vacation in Mexico only in the Caribbean (Yucatan Peninsula), there is no reason to use a flight to move between destinations. Domestic flights are only useful if you want to visit other regions in Mexico such as the Pacific side or Mexico City. There are daily domestic flights in Mexico and even their low-cost airlines provide remarkably good service.

Admittedly, traveling by bus can be a bit oppressive and cumbersome. Especially if you are on your honeymoon or on a family vacation with children. But this is undoubtedly the safest way when it comes to long trips. Mexico has an extensive network of buses that will take you from place to place. The options range between state-of-the-art and modern buses and the traditional buses of the locals in general. The most convenient and popular company for moving between destinations is ADO. You can find their stations in all the main cities such as Playa del Carmen, Cancun, and Tulum. It is also important to note that in most cases, you must book the bus ride in advance, especially during peak season. But in the other seasons, you can buy tickets on the spot.




Car Rental

Renting a private car is definitely an advantage for anyone who wants to manage their schedule independently. There are many offers for renting a car in Mexico and you can choose which prices suit you best. Prices range from $40-60 per day. Depends on the period and the agency. During busy periods, it is recommended to coordinate with one of the agencies to book in advance.
Recommended car agencies: Hertz, Firefly, Alamo
It should be taken into account that the road rules in Mexico may be different from what you are used to, so it is always better to exercise extra caution.

If you are looking to make short transitions within the destination you are in (for example from the hotel to the beach or to a restaurant), a taxi is an appropriate option for this. Apart from Tulum where taxi prices are quite expensive, taxi prices in Mexico are relatively cheap. Most taxis operate on a price based on distance, but sometimes you can negotiate with drivers regarding the price when you want to reach a specific area.

Cancun taxis




As one of the most popular cruise destinations in the world, there is no shortage of sailing options in Mexico. If you intend to reach one of the islands of Mexico, such as Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, and Holbox, you will have to take a ferry. Ticket prices and sailing times are relatively affordable but vary according to each destination and each season. It is recommended to be updated beforehand on the latest schedule for each destination and the ticket prices.

Service Taxi – “Collectivo”

If a taxi ride is too expensive for you, you can make the trip using a shared taxi that runs on a specific route. Colectivo drivers will usually stop anywhere along their route to pick up or drop off passengers. The trip is charged per person and the drivers usually try to share as many people as possible with the trip. Another option if you are a large group, is to coordinate with a private driver for a trip for the group.
