We no longer recommend shared airport transfers for anyone visiting Cancun or the Riviera Maya. Shared airport transfers to Cancun used to be a good way to save a few dollars, but no longer!
Best Day, the biggest shared transfers company in Cancun, increased their prices a few years ago to such an extent that it is now only marginally more expensive to book a private airport transfer, who have held their prices constant for the last 8 years or more.
For example, Best Day’s current price for a shared return transfer between a hotel in the Cancun Hotel Zone and the Airport is now $26 per person with a minimum booking of 2 people!
This makes the total $52 (for 2 persons) and is only $3 less than booking a private transfer with our recommended transport provider – USA Transfers at $55. If you book with USA for more than 2 people then the price differential is huge. With the shared transfer it would cost you $104 for 4 people with Best Day vs $60 for up to 7 people with USA Transfers.
Plus, with a private transfer you don’t have to wait for the van to fill up and twiddle your thumbs while other people are dropped off at different hotels and unload their luggage etc. Instead you get your own personal vehicle and driver with no stops for other people, direct to your hotel. The price increases of the shared transfer companies means that choosing private transfer over shared is now a no brainer.
