Getting to the Cancun Airport for your departing flight

Getting to Cancun Airport: Your Departure Ride Choices in 2024

  • Pre-paid private Cancun Airport transportation
  • Local busses and ADO bus from Cancun centro
  • Taxis in Cancun?
  • Using rideshare like Uber or Lyft a no-no in Cancun’s hotel zone

So, you're wrapping up your amazing vacation in Cancun and it's time to head back home or move on to your next adventure. But hey, let's talk about how you're gonna get to the Cancun International Airport – it's not just about the destination, it's also about how you get there and what kind of experience you wanna wrap up your trip with.

Private Cancun transfers are the way to roll. Picture this: you, kicking back in a comfy ride, bidding Cancun farewell in style with a friendly driver as you watch the palm trees roll by. Getting to the Cancun airport with pre-paid private transportation is the most highly recommended mode of travel. Savvy travelers book ahead with round-trip transportation to their Cancun hotels and back again but better late than never if you need a lift to the Cancun airport. Safe, guaranteed smooth rides.

The ADO bus is another option to get to the airport but it comes with some drawbacks. The bus departs from downtown Cancun, not the hotel zone, which means you will need to cart all your luggage yourself on the local R1 and R2 buses or risk a taxi, not recommended. The ADO bus is an economical choice that is probably best for young and spry solo travelers or those traveling super light. The service is not 24 hours a day and will not depart early enough for many morning flights.

Regular taxis to the Cancun Airport will be VERY expensive and offer no guarantees of safety and no guarantee of price at the end of the ride. Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft do not operate from the hotels of Cancun or the airport due to ongoing conflicts with the taxi unions. Taxis and rideshares are not considered safe options for getting to the Cancun Airport in 2024.

Safe journeys home or beyond to all you intrepid travelers, beach lovers and Cancunaholics!
