How to get to and depart Chiquilá by Bus

If your are on a budget and would prefer to arrive to Holbox by bus, there are a number of options and timetables available to you. Whether you're travelling from Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Merida, Valladolid or Cancun, there are services to bring you that little bit closer to paradise. Please see the bus company listings, timetables and prices below for more information.

Be advised that on the 2nd class buses from Cancún there have been numerous reports of pick pockets on the bus. Make sure that you keep your valuables, money and ID close and not on the top rack. Especialy if you doze off

How to get a taxi to and from Chiquilá

Authorised airport taxis situated outside the terminal buildings in Cancun can bring you directly to Chiquilá; the journey takes around 2 hours. From there, take a 20 minute ferry ride or a private boat from the port to Holbox Island.

Note: these airport taxis are much more expensive than regular taxis, which are not authorised to pick up passengers from the airport. At an extra cost of around 160 pesos, you can also take the toll road (la cuota), which cuts off around 30 minutes from your journey. Ask your driver if you are interested in going this way.

On the way back to Cancún or other places in the Riviera Maya it is possible to hire registered taxis in Chiquilá. Please find the prices and contact numbers below.

Booking a transfer to Holbox

Pre-arrange your transfer to Holbox and a driver will be waiting for you outside of the terminal building. Again, the journey should take around 2 hours, plus the ferry/private boat ride over to the island. The transfer also includes a taxi that will pick you up at the Holbox port and drop you off at your hotel.
