We decided to use the bus instead of taxis while in Cancun. The bus stop was a block and a half away from the Vacation Club. Go out the main entrance. Turn right, walk straight, and it's right there! You'll need pesos to pay for your fare. It was 13 pesos per person—what a deal. We just couldn't justify taking a taxi when it was so convenient to take the bus. Plus, we got a flavor of the local culture at the same time. We mainly took the bus down to the market area or to downtown Cancun. Just make sure you make a note of the bus line number that you get on and where it drops you off so that you can get back on it.
One day, a man with an accordion hopped on and entertained us with authentic Mexican song during our ride. Of course he wanted tips, but it was quite enjoyable. Another time, there was a promotional give-away set up alongside the street at one of the traffic lights. As cars would stop at the light, guys would run out to them and give them sodas for free. We were trying to figure out what was going on at first, and thought that they had to pay for them, but when the bus pulled up they gave everyone on the bus a free soda! It was very interesting. The buses were clean and the ride was nice.
