Mexico has an excellent bus service running to every town no matter how small or far away. Every town has a bus terminal and tickets prices are extremely reasonable.  

Public buses in Cancun run between the Hotel Zone and downtown from 6 AM until midnight and cost about 5 pesos. Taking the bus can save you a considerable amount of money on taxis and are great for meeting the locals. There are designated bus stops but you can also flag down drivers and if they can stop safely they will. Buses from the Hotel Zone do not go into downtown but will drop you off at Avenida Tulum, where you can catch a connection downtown. Look for buses that say “El Centro” for downtown buses. Route 8 public buses go to Puerto Juárez and Punta Sam. Buses will be crowded during rush hour from 7 to 9 AM, 1 to 3 PM and from 7 to 9 PM.  

The downtown bus terminal is located on Avs. Tulum and Uxmal. First class and second class buses to all the major cities and ruins (Valladolid, Mérida, Chichén Itzá, Tulum, Cobá) leave every few hours. Buses to Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, and Xcaret leave every 20 minutes.
