Is there Uber in Cancun Airport 2024?

Uber in Cancun has been a controversial issue for years. In 2024, the taxi union has now come to an agreement with Uber, but they are still not allowed to provide rideshare services at the Cancun Airport. Uber is an option for transportation in the downtown area and the hotel zone of Cancun. Cancun Airport transportation should be reserved in advance.

The Uber situation in Cancun in 2024: What’s the Deal?

  • Uber is not allowed to pick-up at the Cancun Airport.
  • Uber has services in the hotel zone of Cancun and downtown
  • The taxi union agreement means Uber in Cancun is less risky
  • Cancun taxi drivers will now work together with rideshare apps
  • It is recommended to reserve Cancun Airport transportation in advance

What can I use from the airport instead of Uber in Cancun?

  • Private Cancun Airport transportation reserved in advance
  • ADO bus service to Cancun Downtown
  • A ride from a cool Cancun friend
  • Bad idea to arrive with no transportation, risking money, time and safety

The ADO bus is an economical option but has a limited schedule and the bus will not wait for you. ADO brings you to the downtown Cancun bus terminal on Avenida Uxmal. You will have to find a way to get to your accommodations from there which can mean a public bus or an expensive taxi ride. This can add hours to your travel day, you will have to manage your own luggage and really leaves you on your own to navigate the complicated streets of the city.

Arriving without transportation is a bad idea as you will not find Uber services at the Cancun Airport and it is not legal to simply hail a taxi. Hitting the ground and running into the “sharks” trying to hard sell you on services is overwhelming and stressful. You risk being scammed at the Cancun Airport, losing time, money and the safety of you and your travel partners. Dealing with shady sales people and taxi drivers is not how you want to begin your fabulous vacation. Always book Cancun transportation in advance, then use a simple “No, gracias” to all the aggressive salespeople as you walk confidently to your prearranged ride.

MICHAEL - 6 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 - 8 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.
