From Cancun Airport:
There is a bus that goes direct to Playa del Carmen. The first one leaves at 8:50 am and the last one at 10:15 pm. They leave approximately every 40 mins and charge $114 pesos per person. There are also 'collectivos' (shared vans) and taxis available for higher rates.

Once you arrive

From the bus station to the Happy Gecko walking:
We are only four streets away. Take Avenida Juarez up 1 block from bus station to Avenida 10 and turn to the right.
You will find us between Calle 6 & Calle 8, just 3 and a half blocks away.
