If we take the bus from Cancun to Chetumal, then the San Pedro Water Taxi to AC, where do we go through customs? And how much time should we allow to get from Chetumal bus station to water taxi? Thanks! Arriving for our first trip to AC on Sunday, can't wait!

You will clear customs here in SP on the dock.

15 minutes from bus station to dock, about 100 pesos or so (could be cheaper if you get lucky, but i dont bother to fight with them over what amounts to pennies in US dollars...its hot and they lug my luggage for me)

enjoy your trip!!!

Oh, and sit in the back of the boat...less bouncy wink

If arriving in Chetumal at the ADO bus terminal, there is a little booth inside the terminal where you can get water taxi information. There is (or at least there once was) a water taxi sign and a person who speaks English. You could probably buy a ticket there, but you might get pushed into an overpriced taxi. Iíd just go outside to get a taxi, and buy a ticket at the pier.

Itís about 3.5 km from the ADO terminal to the pier. A taxi should take about 10 minutes, and cost about MX$15 to MX$20 (thatís pesos), and certainly no more than MX$30. The taxi driver might not know about the water taxi, but he/she will know the pier. Write it down if you canít pronounce it.

When daylight saving is in effect in Mexico, SP Water Jets departs Chetumal at 3:30 pm Mexico time (2:30 pm Belize time), and SP-B Express departs Chetumal at 4:30 pm Mexico time (3:30 pm Belize time).
