U.S. News & World Report quoted:
"Cancún has an excellent bus system that motors through the Hotel Zone on Boulevard Kukulcán as well as Avenida Tulum in the downtown area. You can flag down drivers along the strip; once inside the bus, you'll find the stop-request button located above the handrails. Cancún buses charge a flat rate of 8.5 Mexican pesos per ride. (Be sure to have Mexican currency on hand.) If you'd like to travel in luxury, Bus One is the only air-conditioned bus in the Hotel Zone and costs 11 pesos. There are also regional buses that take tourists to and from Chichen Itza and nearby tourist towns like Tulum and Playa Carmen. These buses leave from the downtown area at the intersection of Avenida Tulum and Uxmal."
