    How to take the Colectivo in Quintana Roo, Mexico? Well, first let me tell you it’s easier than you might think. It’s not as formal as public transportation where I’m from, Alberta, Canada – but, it’s reliable and convenient. Plus, as an added bonus, we saved over $200 Canadian by taking the Colectivo over a Taxi. An important thing to know is that there are two Colectivo ‘lines’ if you will.
