DirectionsShow MapHide Map
The easiest way to get here from the centre is to take a taxi to Calle 2 norte. Entre Av 120 y 125 norte in Ejido.If you walk away from the bus terminal and flag down a taxi, it will be cheaper. Should cost around 25 or 30 pesos from the centre.
From the ADO, OCC ATS & Mayab Terminals on Juarez Av:
By bus: walk until Juarez with 30th avenue to take the bus (tucsa) towards Ejido and get off after you see the sports centre on your left. Keep walking up the street past the petrol station on your left, and the supermarket áki´on your right. Cross the main street and past the shops on your right. Take the first right, then the first left. We are the big orange gated house along the stony street.
By car from the Cancun airport, take Route 307 South for 35-40 minutes. STAY IN CENTER LANES IF POSSIBLE. This is the only tricky part of driving in this area. The highway is set up with a local access on the far edge, with the through lines in the center, but they tend to go in and out without much warning. You will pass the Puerto Morelos area at the halfway point. About 20 minutes later, you will go through the Playa del Carmen overpass (stay on right until you see the Juarez Ave Exit, On Juarez Avenue you will turn right. Continue straight. You are close now. when you see the lights with the petrol station on your left, go straight cross the interception, then take the first right then the first left down the stony street. We are the large orange house on the right.
