Valladolid to Cancun Airport

I have an 11:30 am flight out of Cancun. Is there a shuttle service available from Valladolid to Cancun Airport?

Would appreciate some input. Thanks.

Personally I would take the ADO bus to downtown Cancun the day before then stay at a hotel near the airport (Courtyard by Marriott or Comfort Inn) or your preferred hotel downtown or in the hotel zone.

ado.com.mx for schedule

CoPilots suggestion is best ADO has no early bus to Cancun to get you there in time for the flight.

I was in the same boat - the first ADO wouldn't quite get me to the airport soon enough.

However, I noticed there were frequent 2nd-class departures starting in the wee hours, all going to the Cancun bus terminal. I set the alarm, got up early, and had a slow but scenic ride to Cancun via the non-toll road that goes through various towns enroute. From the Cancun bus terminal there are frequent ADO shuttles to the airport.

Budget an extra hour if you go 2nd-class.

Good suggestion, VP. When I lived in Valladolid, I often used the Oriente second class buses departing in the wee hours. Oriente is ADOs second class company and the buses are fine--air conditioned and reclining seats.

And the buses are often almost as fast as first class at that time of day since few people are waiting by the road to board.

That is an option. I just prefer to be closer to the airport on departure day.

Sounds very stressful to me to go early morning. Am surprised that there is not shuttle or collectivo service.

Its a little far for a collectivo or shuttle. I also prefer to be closer to the airport but its not everyones choice I realize.
