Colectivo to and from Playa del Carmen

I noticed a colectivo stand in the square on a map I was looking at. Does this mean I can take a colectivo from that stand all the way to the colectivo stand in Playa? I didn't think the colectivo came in off the highway so I just assumed we would have to either walk in from the highway or take a taxi.

There are colectivos that go from the town square to the colonia across the highway, but they will drop you off at the highway (or so I'm told). These are different than the ones that run up and down the highway (Cancun - Playa and Playa - Tulum). I was just there and the cab driver told me they were 20 pesos per person.

If you can get from the in town facility to the highway...and IF they drop you off at hwy 307 where the ADO bus stops going southbound....just wait for the ADO bus to get to Playa del Carmen.

Yes the one shown on the square will take you to the highway. You will want to get off on the west side of the highway. There will be plenty of colectivos to Playa from there about every 5 minutes. Just tell the driver here that you are going to Playa and he will drop you off at the right spot.
