They met me at the ferry so there was no getting lost or worry which was great. Then the driver was chatty and nice, stopping for me to get water as well.  Overall it was a very positive experience.


Driver arrived 5 minutes early, was courteous, understood English very well, helped load our bags, and had us to the airport on-time.  Van was clean and spacious.  Will recommend/do business with again.

Everything worked out smoothly both directions. The drivers were on time and the vehicles were clean.  Both drivers were friendly and drove safely. The vehicles were also equipped with safety belts and had good A/C (which is important in that area). I would definitely use them again.

We were picked up at Cancun Airport and dropped and Paseo Del Sol in Playa Carmen and the returned to the airport 8 days later. Both drivers were prompt, pleasant and helpful. Great service at a reasonable price!

Shuttle Service From Playa Del Carmen To Cancun Hotel Zone

Our shuttle was on time and although parking was approximately 2 blocks from the Playa ferry our driver met us at the ferry and walked us to the van.  The transportation fee was very reasonable.  We requested a private shuttle for 6 adults and the cost was just $65 US dollars for a 45-minute drive to Cancun. The van was new and very comfortable. The day before our trip, I contacted Travel Yucatan to change the time of our pickup and they were very accommodating in making the last minute change. We will definitely use Travel Yucatan on our next trip to Mexico.

When I booked our 2 am (yes, 2 am) shuttle for the wrong date, my wife noticed immediately. It took a little effort to reach someone, but we used every number on the contact form, and eventually fixed the booking. Travel Yucatan was nice enough to change our reservation without penalty. Our driver was waiting for us when we exited immigration. We will use Travel Yucatan again in the future.

We used the service for 4 of us to go to Playa del Carmen.  The driver was on time,  professional,  and drove safely. Making them my go-to transport company in and around Cancun.

Excellent, Professional Transportation – Easy To Work With And Flexible

We used Travel Yucatan for our transportation while on a family vacation to Mexico Dec. 2017. They were outstanding -went above and beyond every step of the way. We went from the airport to Tulum, from Tulum to Playa del Carmen, and then from Playa del Carmen to the airport and had to make time changes and location changes on 2 or 3 occasions. They were flexible, prompt, and professional. Each driver was outstanding. We will use Travel Yucatan any time we are in Mexico.

Transfer From Playa Del Carmen To Cancun

Fabulous service! Getting a private transfer to Cancun from Playa Del Carmen was effortless and saved us so much time and stress. Our party of 6 split the fare which made it very reasonable and preferable to public transport. Our driver was waiting for us as soon as we hopped off the ferry and took us straight to our accommodation in Cancun. He was courteous and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and recommend them to other travelers

Great company! Good clean transport, if I come back to Mexico, I will definitely use travel Yucatan again. I would definitely say travelers should use this company

Fany, we appreciate everything you did to have everything planned for our trip.  Loved having my name on a card for pickup at the airport and Manuel was excellent and in a lot of ways helped improve our trip.  We thank you and next time coming to the area will get back In touch.  Thank you so much again!

Playa Del Carmen Private Transportation

For me there is nothing better than knowing that someone will be there on time and holding a sign with your name upon arrival at a busy airport like Cancun where everyone is looking to tell you they are there to pick you up all the while attempting to talk you into a time share. Thank you for your prompt, attentive and courteous service from Cancun Airport to Playa del Carmen and back. Your drivers were perfect and on time wouldn’t think twice about using your service again.

The driver was on time and the service was great.

Cancun Airport To Playa Del Carmen, Playa Del Carmen To Cancun Airport

Just a Quick review to give a Shout out to Tavel Yucatan for their shuttle service to and from the Cancun Airport. Our driver arrived on time, but I could not find him, so I sent him a msg and he immediately responded telling us where he was. There were 8 ppl so we were a little cramped on the way to the Iberostar Quetzal in Playa del Carmen but we stopped to get beer and we were all good after that! We stayed for a week and when on the return trip the driver was on time and even had a larger Van to accommodate all 8 of us! Leaving always stinks, but at least we were comfortable on the way back! BTW check out Xel-Ha if you stay in Playa, don’t pay for the extras, bc you will be worn out by the time you leave! Wonderful natural park! Thanks again Travel Yucatan

Transportation Playa Del Carmen To Cancun

Great trip!

Shuttle To Airport

This trip really helped me out. My Playa del Carmen hotel was unable to provide a shuttle to the airport for me as it was “too early and they did not have shuttles that ran at that time”. They did offer a taxi service but I was low on cash. Travel Yucatan was prompt to respond to me via email when I was feeling desperate and also allowed me to pay online with a credit card. The driver arrived early and brought me to the airport with no issues. He was polite and also let me sleep on the ride. Thank you so much for bailing me out!
