We are doing this next week and did it in 2013. USA Transfer has always been right on time. The cost went up a little this year. Airport-TTR-Desire-Airport $105. Still not bad for a private transfer.

We booked USA Transfer from airport to TTR and Pearl to airport. We used a taxi from TTR to Pearl it was $40 and we didn't have to pre plan when we were going to leave TTR.

If you want to pay by credit card I believe that you'll have to do so on line at their website, before the pickup date.

We always just pay cash, as to tips we usually tip the guy that greets, calls the vehicle and usually helps with our bags a couple of bucks per couple and the actual driver about $5 for a couple - if you are traveling with another couples you may want to up those amounts a bit.



CokeMann, we are going to Pearl on 5/18, leave on 5/22. How much cash we need to spare for tips on our 4 nights trip? This is our first trip to any Desire. And whom and when you normally tip? Thanks a lot!

It's definitely not required at either of the Desire properties, but if you feel that you want to acknowledge the service that you receive then do so !!

There are already many threads on the subject of tipping - just put the word tipping
in the forums search engine (top right of any page) to see what others have said on the subject.

Tipping is really a personal thing that you will have to sort out for yourself.....

It seems that Uber operates in Cancun, and the trip from airport to DP is pretty cheap. Has anyone tried this yet?

FYI - Uber is not allowed to pick up fares at the Cancun airport, just the same as regular taxis are not allowed to pick up fares at the Cancun airport

We did once and won’t again. You are in a van with other people and they stop at different resorts.

We use USA transfers and you have your own van that goes direct to your resort. I book thru the forum, as it benefits the forum. Pay cash and tip. Very reliable also.
