we need to hire a van from the Cancun airport to the ferry to isla mujeres
The regular van now $34 is OK but it stops in hotel zone first then ferry. Yoy ara last one off.
I pay the private and $60-65 plus tips is ok.
It is all rip off. A taxi ftom airport to ferry is about $60 now. But from ferry to aiportis $29. What? and walk across from ferry and up get for $20 to airport. So, same trip is $65 going or $20-29 coming!!!!!! Yes touristas, we don't have no stickin batches! :-) The trip one way is maybe 15-16 miles.
brisk - I have used Best Day twice and have yet to go thru the hotel zone, which I think would add a good 1/2 hour or so to the trip. It is just that they don't guarantee it. The shared van can/does drop off other passengers on the way, but usually, it is just passengers going to the ferry. :)
Thank you everyone this has been a great help
Going private means you will go directly to Puerto Juarez. This is at least a half hour faster than going through the hotel zone. Going regular means you MAY go through the Hotel Zone first, and probably will, because Puerto Juarez is always the last stop after other passengers are dropped in the Hotel Zone. Exactly how much time you lose in the Hotel Zone depends on how many stops are made. If everybody else is getting off at the same hotel, your trip will be faster than if the van has to stop at 3 or 4 hotels. Once in a while, if enough Puerto Juarez passengers arrive to load a regular van simultaneously, Best Day will send you directly to the ferry -- but it is all a matter of luck if you book "regular" service as opposed to "private."
I go with Best Day. Best price for the service. Even paying a TA doesn't guarantee the transfer service will be there. They can't help accidents, traffic, etc., etc. This is Mexico. Just relax and enjoy the Mexican time. I wouldn't pay $70 to get to the airport unless I was very, very late. I have never been taken through the hotel zone when going to/from Puerto Juarez.
We have used Bestday.com for years and they are profession and reliable. The cost is $17.00 for up to 2 people one way. You must book online.
I would recomend E-Plus as well used them the last 5 trips with no issues.
We've used Best Day, NO problems.;[[';]\
