Fastest and easiest is to fly from San Pedro to Corozal, arrange a transfer from that air strip to the bus station in Chetumal, then take the bus to Cancun.

There is also an airline that now flies from Chetumal to Cancun, Alma Air, but I don't know their schedule or pricing. I think the flights are early morning and evening.

The bus ride from Chetumal to Cancun is about six hours. We've always stopped part way and spent the night, either in Tulum or Playa del Carmen.

Some of the transfer companies will take you all the way to Cancun, but it will be hundreds of dollars, we used http://www.belizetransfers.com/ to get from the airstrip to Chetumal. And another time they picked us up in Chetumal for the reverse. I greatly overestimated how long it would take to cross the border and such, we ended up with a couple hours to kill in Corozal. The driver took us to a nice restaurant on the water, then came back and picked us up and dropped us at the airstrip.
