How to get there
From central Cancún, drivers should take Carretera Cancún-Chetumal until the ‘km 22’ exit, and then follow signs for the airport.
A public bus service (tel: +52 998 848 0333) links Terminals 2 and 3 with Cancún’s central bus station and Playa del Carmen, but this is not a recommended option for travellers. The fare to Cancún is US$4, and the journey time is around 35 minutes.
There is an official public shuttle service from the airport to Cancún (tel: +52 998 848 0335; www.cancunsharedshuttle.com) and the Riviera Maya, making a number of stops at various hotels and towns between 0800 and 2000. The fare into central Cancún is around US$12, and the driving time is about 30 minutes. The shuttle leaves the airport when the bus is full and therefore journey times can be lengthy. Tickets can be purchased at the desk in the baggage reclaim area. Private shuttles are also available.
An official taxi company (tel: +52 998 848 0335; www.cancun-taxi.com) provides individual and group services from the airport. Taxis can be reserved in advance online or paid for at the airport just after the Arrivals hall. The cost to central Cancún is US$40, with a travel time of 25 minutes.
Car parking is located at the airport main entrance. The car park, which offers both short- and long-term rates, is open 24 hours a day and is patrolled by a security service.
