There are ADO express buses operating about every 2 hours between Chetumal and Playa del Carmen -- trip time about 4.5 hours and and about 250 pesos. You can get the full schedule with fares on the ADO website.
If you are on Ambergris Caye or Caye Calker, you can use a water taxi to get to Chetumal. There are 2 water taxis and they depart every morning.
The ADO express bus from Belize City departs at 8:15 pm and costs BZ$63 to Playa. It will make pick-ups at Orange Walk & Corozal.
ive taken this trip a few times, and while you can get a very cheap bus ride to the border, the local airlines fly to Corozal around 5 times a day. Not sure if you are staying on the mainland or on one of the islands, but the air fare is around US$50 one way per person. The flight is around 15 minutes where as the bus ride is a few hours and on not very comfortable buses. My understanding is you won't have A/C on the bus.
From the airport in Corozal, you can take a taxi to the border. They will take you to the Belize exit building, where you will clear Belize immigration to leave, then you taxi will take you to the Mexico side, which is around a 5 minute drive, to check in to mexico.
From there you can either take a taxi to playa del carmen to the cozumel ferry or you can take the ADO bus to playa del carment and then, depending on which ADO termial you arrive at, you can either walk up 5th Ave to the ferry terminal or if you arrive at the other terminal you will want to take a 5 minutes taxi ride to the ferry terminal.
The taxi from the boarder to Playa del carmen is around US$150 where as teh bus from the boarder to playa would be around US$10 per person.Edited: 21 September 2011, 10:45
