SERVICIO COLLECTIVOS - Inexpensive way to travel in Yucatan
My husband and I recently returned from back to back cruises to Mexico. While in Playa del Carmen, we took a bus from Playa to Tulum for $2.80 each. Then, after seeing Tulum, we caught a Servicio Collectivo van back to Playa del Carmen for $2.50 each. The vans go back and forth between Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
On the next trip to Playa del Carmen, we took a Servicio Collectivo van to Cancun for $3.00 each. We then took a city van to Puerto Juarez and rode the ferry to Isla Mujeres, a small island off of Cancun. After walking around Isla Mujeres for a while, we caught the ferry back to Cancun. We then took a city van to the Servicio Collectivo drop off, then the Servicio Collectivo van back to Playa del Carmen. (It helps that my husband speaks Spanish.)
We had a great time, and saved a lot of money. Just thought I'd share this information with anyone who might be interested.
