Colectivo from Secrets The Vine to Puerto Morelos

We're considering spending part of a day in Puerto Morelos to go snorkeling and look around and would rather do it without a lot of expense. It looks like a colectivo might be our best option, but I'm a little fuzzy on the particulars.

Do we just go out to the main road and wait for a colectivo to come past and flag it down?

If the colectivo is going southbound, is it reasonable to assume that it's going toward Puerto Morelos?

Will it take us to Puerto Morelos or does it drop us off at the highway nearest it and do we need to let the driver know where we want to get off?

Sorry to have so many questions, but I hope someone can help out.

1) Get on an R1 hotel zone bus heading north. About 8.5 pesos

Go to the downtown ADO bus station.

2) Hop on an ADO bus to Puerto Morelos. Every 15 minutes. 24 pesos. 35 minute travel time.

3) At the PM stop, take a taxi to your final destination.

CO_Pilot's instructions will be the easiest. However, if you have your heart set on the colectivo, they park across the street from the Commercial Mexicana store, which is on Tulum. Basically take the R-1 bus out of the hotel zone and it will eventually turn down Tulum. When you see Commercial Mexicana on your right, get off. The colectivos will be lined up in the parking area across the street from the store. They go to Playa but will stop in Puerto Morelos. It's about 25-30 minutes. The colectivos stop outside of town about 2 miles, so from there you take a cab into town (20-30 pesos). You'll want to tell the driver you're getting off in Puerto Morelos, as they charge a little bit less than if you were going all the way to Playa del Carmen.

Thank you for the info. I missed seeing your replies earlier. I was hoping that the colectivo would be quicker/easier than taking the R-1 and then getting the ADO, but that doesn't sound like that's the case. Thank you again!
