If you are in downtown Cancun you can take a cab to Puerto Morelos without any problem, although it should be noted that cabs in the city are not very nice, neat and equipped. So it would be up to you whether or not to take one of them.

What if I am at the Cancun airport? Here you can do two things, you can either book a private cab or stand in line outside the airport to take a cab. The difference between the cabs in downtown Cancun is that the airport cabs are more well-kept, air-conditioned and much more comfortable.

It is worth mentioning that cabs are small units with a maximum capacity of 3 passengers and little luggage.


Another option that can only be taken from downtown Cancun as such is the ADO. The ADO runs the Cancun Playa del Carmen route, but makes small stops between the town of Puerto Morelos and the hotel zone. Therefore, you can ask to be dropped off at that location.
