How much does it cost to get from Cancun airport to the hotel zone?

Getting from the Cancun Airport to the hotel zone costs from $62 USD for private Cancun transportation with a reputable and experienced service. Getting to the hotel zone of Cancun from the airport will take around 30 minutes, the exact time will depend on the location of your resort.

What is the “hotel zone” of Cancun? How do you get there?

The hotel zone of Cancun is located on one long street, Kukulkan Boulevard which runs approximately 26 kms. Hotel addresses are based on their location along the strip. The lower the km number, the closer you are to downtown Cancun, the closer you get to the airport, the higher the numbers. A hotel with an address at “km 9 Kukulkan Blvd” for example is located 9 kms from downtown, in the heart of the “party center” of Cancun’s vibrant nightlife. When you make a reservation with a private transportation company, it will cost you from $62 USD per van to get from the Cancun airport to the hotel zone of Cancun.

I have 20 years of experience living in Cancun and traveling through the airport. After all my rides with friends, taking the bus and hustling on my own, I will only use private transportation now. It saves me time, money and stress every single trip. Taking the ADO bus is hard on my aching back after travel and having to wait for the next departure time is super inconvenient. Late night arrivals are out of luck with buses too, you will definitely want to reserve a private transfer to the hotel zone in advance. It is worth every peso to book ahead.

Cancun is one of the world’s favorite beach vacation destinations for a million reasons! White sandy beaches, world-class hotels and resorts, fine dining and incredible adventures. Cancun offers some of the best scuba and snorkeling on the planet with warm, crystal-clear waters and the Mesoamerican Reef full of marine life. Cancun is located in the world of the ancient Maya, inviting visitors to explore Mayan ruins and discover the history and culture of a fascinating civilization.

Safety, comfort and the best price for Cancun Airport transfers to the hotel zone with Happy Shuttle Cancun

The best way to get from the Cancun airport to the hotel zone is with a pre-arranged transfer with Happy Shuttle Cancun. Paying in advance means you get the best price available and have NO worries or stress when arriving in the chaotic Cancun International Airport. Your pre-paid Cancun airport transfers to the hotel zone guarantee a safe ride will be waiting for you with licensed drivers, impeccable vehicles and the assurance that you will never face unexpected charges or fees.

Travel days are stressful enough, don’t arrive at the Cancun airport and expect to get a good price on a cab to the hotel zone. You must remember that it is illegal to hail a taxi at the Cancun Airport and rideshare apps like Uber are not permitted. If you wait until you arrive to look for transportation to your Cancun hotel, you’ll pay an elevated rate and run the risk of getting scammed by taxis or unscrupulous companies at the Cancun airport. I sincerely do NOT recommend landing without a ride waiting, it is just an anxiety attack waiting to happen.

MICHAEL - 9 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Hotel Occidental Costa Cancun

Friendly drivers and always on time.

Know what you want before booking. Snorkeling not good, drunken co-ed vibe.
Trusted Customer - 11 days ago Cancun Catamaran Tour

The service was just fine. Everyone was very nice. However, it was definitely a "drunken co-ed" vibe, and that was just not what we were looking for. Loud music, and a guy dressed up in a bra and wig pouring shots into people's mouths on the way back. That's not our vibe, but if that's what you're looking for... The sea was quite choppy where we were let out to snorkel. Obviously, they can't control that, but it was so rough you really couldn't see anything. We were quite rushed, and they only provided masks and snorkels, no fins (they did provide life vests). I had my own equipment, including fins, and I actually had to help a lady who was starting to panic, as she was swallowing. I had to grab her and tow her in as the guides were yelling at us to hurry up. Finally a guide came back and helped. Not a super great experience. The beach club was ok. The food was mediocre, but that's to be expected. The beach area was crowded and smelled of raw sewage.
