1. Re: Distance to Cancun from Catalonia Playa Maroma

Why would you go for a shopping to Cancun? Playa Del Carmen is only 25 min from the resort with a lot of shopping and there are two free shuttles a day to go there that resort provides - they need to be reserved a day before and you can use it one way if you do not want to stay that long - you could take it one way, do some shopping and use a taxi to go back to resort. When staying at Catalonia Playa Maroma it is impossible to use the collectivo (public transit) as it takes a very long walk from the resort to the Hwy and I would not like walking that road trough the jungle as there are might be some very nasty insects there.

Thanks, Olga. My preference is PDC but one of my travel companions wants to go to Cancun. She thinks the shopping is better there.

Then it leaves you the only option to call taxi to get there, the bell boys are usually the ones to arrange it. The distance will be about 40 min to get there, as I understand Cancun is a little further away from CPM the PDC, may be someone can comment on the cost of taxi fare from CMP to Cancun mall.
