My 8:30 am bus from Cancun to Tulum never showed up, causing me to take the 9:10 am bus & share the seat with someone from the Playa del Carmen leg. I’m working while traveling & booked an early bus so that I can log onto work on time. Thankfully the staff was really nice & helpful. I love how clean & new the buses are, as well as the movies playing.
Don’t get a ticket to Tulum through Budbus. When I went to get onboard they said my ticket was only valid to Playa Del Carma, which it clearly stated it was to Tulum. I had to pay cash for a whole new ticket. Don’t waste your time or money. Buy a ticket at the station.
This bus is not at the airport and it did not tell me that. I only found out that after I asked where the bus was at the airport and found out that it was in town. What a waste of money. Not the way to start a vacation
Good ride. Professional service. The only issue I had was the video that was playing was only in Spanish. It was an American film with Spanish dubbing. It would’ve been nice if it was subtitled in English. It was also fairly loud the entire trip so it was difficult to focus on relaxing or to listen to music in comfort.
Th bus journey from Cancun to Tulum went very smoothly. The driver was very good & careful.
However, it was a little difficult finding out exactly which bus was the one we were to board at the bus station. The screen inside the station told us the number of the bus we were travelling on, but didn't tell us which gate that bus was leaving from. No one we asked inside the station seemed to know?? I had to go out to the buses at the gates & ask at each one which was the bus going to Tulum. Nowhere on the ticket did it mention that we were taking the bus to Mahahuel which would stop Tulum en route to Mahahuel.
