Lots of emails from folks saying they are flying into Cancun because the airfare is cheap and they are wanting to go to San Pedro planning to take a bus and save some money because flying direct to Belize International is expensive.
Soooo I called around and got some info.
It seems this really might be true.
Ado Bus from Cancun to Chetumal is 30us (6hours) and cab from bus the terminal in Chetumal to San Pedro Water Jet terminal is 20 pesos. The ticket on the water jet to San Pedro/Ambergris Caye is 30.us.
This might make sense, Who has done it?

We have made the trip many times, the only price difference is that I have consistantly paid 30 peso's for the cab from the bus depot to the ferry.
Reality..What a concept!

Once we fly into Cancun, what is the best way to get to a bus station to take us to Chetumal? How long is that bus ride? Then from there is it an easy track to the water fairy?

I am about to do this route just one way for the first time very soon and dreading it! The difference one way from Cancun vs BZE was $119 vs $650. Will update the full details, exactly timing, cost, and whether it is really worth the savings after trip.

The first thing to be aware of -- there is no bus from the airport to Chetumal. Visitors will need to go from the airport to the bus terminal in either Cancun city or Playa del Carmen where they then get a bus to Chetumal. There are pros & cons for each route and only the visitor can decide which is best.

In Playa, be aware that the bus to Chetumal departs from a different terminal at which the airport shuttle bus arrives, so there's and extra taxi fare of MX$20 to transfer between terminals.

In order to get the water taxi from Chetumal, visitors have to be in Chetumal by about 2 pm. That means an early start from the airport. Later flight arrivals will mean an overnight somewhere along the way.

I have a detailed summary of the trip on my BelizeBus site:

This is the only way I go from England, last year made 5 trips, this year only made 2 trips. I take the ADO to Playa and over night there. England to Cancun £200-£300 (BZ$600-BZ$900) England to Belize £700-£900 (BZ$2000-BZ$2700).
