How much is a cab from Cancun airport to downtown Cancun?

A cab from the Cancun airport to downtown Cancun starts at $31 USD when booked in advance with Happy Shuttle Cancun. Unlike airports in other cities, you cannot walk out of Cancun airport and hail a cab, it is against the law. Unlicensed, uninsured and unscrupulous pirate taxis are notorious for their Cancun airport scams, beware! There are no ridesharing apps, Uber is not allowed at the Cancun airport.

Pirate cabs in the Cancun airport prey on unsuspecting tourists who may be tired from a long day of travel. They’ll approach you looking friendly and ask for the details of the transportation you have booked in advance. They will tell you that your transfer has already left and that you will need to pay an elevated price for a cab from Cancun airport to downtown Cancun. They may even promise that this money will be refunded but this is never the case. You may end up paying more than $100 USD for the 18 km trip downtown, don’t do it, book ahead!

Never agree to enter an unknown vehicle with an undefined price. The cost of a pirate cab in Cancun is robbery, they will try to trick you with currency confusion and unclear and undefined prices. At the end of your ride you may find your wallet is far emptier than you expected. Avoid paying too much for your cab from the airport to downtown Cancun, always reserve ahead for a guaranteed price with Happy Shuttle Cancun.

Trusted Customer - 6 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Emporio Cancun

Very happy. We did the round trip. Pickup was smooth. We didnt plan too well on the return trip and traffic was bad so we had to walk/run the last 0.5 mile to catch our plane. Driver was very reasonable and chatty. Would use again.

Safe & reliable

LARRY LARRY - 8 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Isla Mujeres Ferry

I called to book shuttle service from the cancun airport to the ferry to cozumel round trip. The shuttle came about 40 minutes after we got through customs and drove us to the ferry. When we got on the other side and asked to taxi driver to take us to the address we then found out they had taken us to Isla Mujeres and not cosumel. We had to pay $130 for a hotel. another $100 for a taxi to take us to the Cozumel ferry and then another $80 for ferry tickets. I called you guys and they had booked us to go to Isla mujers and not cozumel like I originally requested. Then when I told them to change the pick up point to the cozumel ferry they charged me another $79 dollars and had no concerns that your company had made this mistake. So all in all I lost a whole day of my vacation, and had to pay $389 extra for your mistake. So needless to say I am not happy with your company.,
