You have two options for getting to Playa Del Carmen. You can fly into Cancun International Airport and take a shuttle from the airport to Playa del Carmen or you can fly to Cozumel International Airport and take a ferry from Cozumel island to Playa del Carmen.

We recommend flying to Cancun because its an easy shuttle ride (about 45 KM -- 30 min) from the airport to the condo whereas from Cozumel requires a 45 min ferry ride. If you fly into Cancun there are many options (shuttle, taxi or bus) to get from the airport to the condo. Shuttles are usually the cheapest option. We recommend using the shuttle service provided by BestDay travel or the Paradise Transfers shuttle service. We like Paradise Transfers the best because they donate money from each of their sales to the local Playa Del Carmen animal shelter.

If you use a shuttle service, dont worry if your flight is late or the customs lines are long they will wait for you outside the airport. This is a key thing thing to remember: they will wait outside the airport. There will be people inside the airport (just before you get outside) that will try to trick you and tell you BestDay or Paradise went out of business so that you use their service. Don't listen to those people. Just walk outside the airport and as soon as you get outside look for a guy with a BestDay shirt or someone holding a sign with your name on it :).
