What is a colectivo ?
A colectivo is a form of transportation in Mexico that is generally geared towards moving the population around Mexico’s vast labyrinth of roads and highways. Quite often the colectivo is a mini-van. On the Highway 307 when a colectivo approaches he will flash his headlights if he has space in his van. If you want a ride wave your arm and he will stop. You can tell the driver where you are going BUT do NOT expect him to remember, so keep a sharp eye out for your stop and when you get to it just shout out anything. STOP or Alto will work.
Running Times: 5a.m. – 10p.m every 5 – 15 minutes
NOTE: The rate is fixed so if you only go 1 km you still pay the full fee.

Why You Should Use Personal AGI Tours Ground Transportation
Javier Gonzalez, the owner of AGI Tours
See rates below
Our personal ground transportation is one of the best bargains you will encounter while on your vacation to any of the Mayan Riviera Resorts.
When you arrive to your normal transportation offered, there are buses or vans that are full of other passengers that are going to their resort also. You must wait until the bus or van is full before you depart for your resort. You will be waiting for that couple whose luggage was lost. Depending on where your resort is located you could be in the bus or van for up to 2 or 3 hours waiting to arrive at your resort. With AGI Tours your trip to the Grand Palladium will be approximately 60 minutes.
Most travel packages include transportation to your resort, but there is no way of knowing in advance if you will get a private van or a big tour bus. If it’s a large bus it will take an hour or more just to fill up the bus and get ready to leave the airport.
With AGI Tours, you will be at the hotel enjoying a ‘mojito’ or a ‘pina colada’ long before the tour buses even leave the airport. You will also beat the line up to check in that is generated by a bus load of vacationers.
AGI Tours qualified and friendly staff will meet and greet you at the airport(see rates below) and drive you safely and non-stop to your hotel. Caution: There is certain Internet transportation providers that sell ground transportation based on a charge per person, not per vehicle as with AGI Tours. Those are typical airport shuttle with other passengers.
We are all day checking the flights online and updating our staff at the airport, especially when we find out that there is a delay, in such case we also call the airline for more accurate information, therefore you have nothing to worry about but to have a good rest and relax on your flight. Have for sure that we will be there waiting for you upon your arrival.
On the other hand, some flights are delayed because of maintenance and we don’t find out about the delay until it’s the supposed time to arrive, in those cases if you get to your airport and find out that there is a delay I will appreciate you take a minute to call me toll free 1-877-244-6090 or to our new number in USA 941-AGI-TAXI to give me your new flight information and/or ETA. Either way we will always have staff at the airport until the last flight arrives and all of our passengers have been dispatched. For cancelled or diverted flights we ABSOLUTELY NEED updated information, your phone call will help us to serve you better.
If you elect to use AGI Tours private transportation(see rates below) you will be driven directly to your resort without any additional stops. This could save you one to two hours of precious vacation time. For your return trip wholesalers will pick you up 4 to 5 hours before your flight departure, especially taking into consideration that your resort is one of the farthest from the airport. You can be sure that the bus will stop at several resorts before arriving at the airport. With AGI Tours you will be picked up at any time you choose to go back to the airport and we will go directly to the airport.
We are your best option, not only for your arrival and departure transfers, but also for your private tours to the Mayan Ruins, Ecological sites, shopping, etc. AGI Tours will customize your services at your leisure.

Due to the 2014 tax law in Mexico imposed a 16% sales tax on ground transportation, in AGI Tours we are doing an effort and we are keeping our old rates: We will continue absorbing the constantly increased operating costs but there’s not much we can do about the tax so far. I will keep you posted about it if there is any change. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
