Most people rent a car but others take a shuttle down for about $85 for two people.Reserve shuttled in advance. DON'T GET INVOLVED WITH HAWKERS OUTSIDE AIRPORT. There also now is a bus that goes from terminal to terminal. It is free. If you travel light you can take the comfortable ADO bus to Tulum (changing in Playa del Carmen) and then get a cab back to Tankah 3 / Pavo Real entrada. The bus is about $10 and the cab about $15.
To get around you can walk out to the road 1 km and take a shared van called combo for about 20 pesos to Tulum or 40 pesos to Playa del Carmen.
