After a month in PDC, it was time to move to Cancun to see what life was like there. Also it was full-on high season, and I noticed many prices had increased in Playa del Carmen. Quite a few restaurants and cafes had put their prices up.
Cancun is a massive hub for the region, and is split into two distinct areas – Cancun downtown and Cancun Hotel District. I opted to stay downtown.
Getting to Cancun was very straight forward. I hailed a taxi to go to the Ado bus station. It was fast and only MXN$25.
At the bus station it was easy to buy the tickets, and buses left quite frequently. The tickets were MXN$65 one way.
It was only a 20 minute wait until the bus pulled up.
The journey took about an hour, and the bus played a stressful Owen Wilson movie that just didn’t seem right on a public bus. Whatever happened to Happy Feet?
Arriving at the Ado bus station in Cancun, I just followed my nose out to the street.
I was very happy that our Airbnb host, Susie, had agreed to meet us, and I was shocked to see her holding up a sign with my name…. just like at the airport! It was funny.
We hailed a cab together to head home. So far so good. Welcome to Cancun.
