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 links Terminals 2 and 3 with Cancún’s central bus station and Playa del Carmen.
There is an official public shuttle service from the airport to Cancún and the Riviera Maya, making a number of stops at various hotels and towns. The shuttle leaves the airport when the bus is full and therefore journey times can be lengthy. Tickets are available on the airport’s website (cancunairport.com).
An official taxi company provides individual and group services from the airport. Taxis can be reserved in advance (cancunairport.com).
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.
