Hi, I'm new to the board.
The misses and I will be staying for 7 days in Holbox and moving on the Playa del Carmen for 6 more. What is the best way to get to Playa? I'm assuming I need to get to Chiquila by ferry first and catch a bus somehow?
What are my options?
Thanks ni advance.
You would buss to Cancun Central Station and then on to PDC. It should be pretty easy.
My hotel is offering a transfer service from the airport to the hotel and back for140 each way. Is that a reasonable price? They state that it will take approximately 3 hours. What do you guys think?
holbox is great,so is playa del carmen just came back a few weeks ago from playa,I go a few times a year. as far as going to playa from chiquila,there were not any direct bus lines, we had to go to cancun and the take a bus to playa.the bus line is ADO.( that was a couple years ago)when you are in holbox be sure to go have dinner at mi capricho,It`s amazing,but make a reservation,the chef is french and kinda grouchy and they don`t take walk ups.if you don`t already have a place to stay casa las tortugas is wonderful.als be sure to bring baby oil,it`s the only thing to stop these evil bugs from biting,once the get you,you will have bumps the size of golf balls & they even chase you into the water!
The buses from Chiquila to Cancun leave at 5:30am, 7:30am, and 1:30pm. The cost is 74 pesos, and they will either be Mayab or Noreste buses. In Cancun the ADO buses to PDC leave every 15 minutes or so and cost around 34 pesos.
Mi Capriccio was destroyed by Wilma in October 2005. It no longer exists. Alain and Sonia have a wonderful gourmet restaurant now in Cancun called DuMexique on the corner of Avenida Bonampak and Pargo. I highly recommend it. You will also need reservations at this restaurant, as they only have 6 tables. Alain is an incomparable chef. PH: 998-884-5919 or 884-5889
