We have negotiated with
TRAFIC TOURS an excellent price for the round trip airport-hotel-airport. It will cost only $15 USD per person. It is a safe and comfortable service. The office is situated in the Ocean Coral and Turquesa Hotel.

MEXICO CITY AIRPORT
Mexico City is very interesting and plenty of touristic attractions. However, the city is very large and during rush hours it can take time to move between not very distant places. If you have a stop in Mexico City international airport (MEX, Benito Juárez) and have few hours of waiting time you have to be careful if you are tempted to go out of the airport (located within the city), it can be risky, you can be trapped in the heavy traffic. We recommend planning at least one full day to visit Mexico City.
 
WEATHER
During summer the average low-high temperatures in Puerto Morelos are 25 – 32 C (77 – 90 F). Some rain can be expected; however, the rain can last from few minutes to a couple of hours and then back to sunny weather. It is important to use sun protection. After sunset, mosquito repellent will be useful for people with sensitive skin. 10 days weather forecast.
