    • The Mexican peso is the currency of Mexico (symbol: $; code: MXN). Before traveling, it is recommended to buy a couple of hundred dollars worth of Mexican pesos so you can get a good exchange rate and it is also helpful to have some pesos to pay for (everyday purchases, souvenirs, tips, taxis, bars/clubs outside the resort....)
    • Bring your credit and/or debit cards for the hotel or if you need to withdraw pesos from an ATM. Most businesses accept credit cards. However some small businesses (especially in rural areas) do not accept credit cards.
    • To minimize any inconvenience of the exchange cap at banks, it is recommended to bring some CASH (Mexican pesos and US$) 
    • >> We strongly recommend comprehensive Travel Insurance to protect the investment you made on your trip. 
    For your protection, we strongly recommend that you purchase Comprehensive Travel Insurance with Emergency Medical, Trip Cancellation, and interruption (and ask them about their COVID-19 Pandemic Travel Plans). Here is a list of some Travel Insurance companies for Canadian Travellers:

    Using Public Transportation in Playa Del Carmen

    You'll want to travel around while in Playa Del Carmen to visit the sights and explore this beautiful destination. Whether it be Bus, Taxi, Collectivos, Motorcycle, or Car rentals, you'll definitely find your preferred method of transportation. Since there's so much to see and do in Playa del Carmen here is a list of transportation methods in detail to get around.
    Taxis are abundant in the Mayan Riviera and fairly inexpensive. There are taxi stands throughout Playa del Carmen and at most of the all-inclusive resorts in the area. Taxi prices are fixed, there are no meters. Please ask the bell boys of your hotel what the price should be and always agree on the price with the driver before setting off. Try to have the exact amount, and tipping the driver is not customary. Count on the fare being about $1US per minute of driving. So if it is about a 20-minute drive, the fare will be about $20US. Taxi drivers will accept USD but normally at a lesser exchange rate than the bank or exchange booths. The taxis in Playa del Carmen have turquoise stripes. They will all be numbered as all are part of the taxi union.
    The ADO is the local bus system with the main Playa del Carmen bus station being located on 5th Avenue and Juarez street. There are different classes, with the first-class buses offering wireless internet. All are large buses, with air conditioning, comfortable seating, and one seat per passenger. There are stations in major destinations and stops in less populated areas. Popular routes with tourists are Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum. The more adventurous may even take the bus to Merida, Coba, or Chichen Itza. You can consult their schedules and rates at 
    The Colectivos are mini-vans that run up and down the main highway in the area the 307. These cost a fraction of the price of the ADO buses, however, there is not necessarily seating and the comfort level is not the same. You can wave them down or head to the Colectivo 'terminal' located on Calle 2 South between 10 and 15th avenues. This form of transport is for people who want to live like the locals.
