Getting There:

  • Playacar Palace is 45 minutes from the Cancun airport…but it can take up to an hour depending on traffic, so please be patient and relax if this is the case.  The traffic only slows in a couple of spots.
  • After you exit customs and come out the double glass doors, walk all the way down the air conditioned hallway.  You will see tons of greeters with smiling faces, but don’t be fooled…they all want to sell you a time share.  These are not the greeters you want.  Simply nod and keep walking all the way down the hall to the next set of double glass doors that will take you outside to the ground transportation area. Form here, you will look for AmStar Transportation that will set you up with the transfer van to take you to Playacar Palace.
