What to Expect From Cancun Airport Transportation Services?

Know before you go! Knowing what to expect from Cancun Airport transportation services can put your mind at ease when landing at this busy international airport. Let us break it down for you, step by step tips from our family at Happy Shuttle Cancun.

What can you expect at the Cancun Airport?

The Cancun International Airport is a busy place, welcoming millions of visitors each year to explore the Mexican Caribbean and the Yucatan Peninsula. In 2021, Cancun was the second busiest airport in the world and one of the first to welcome travelers after the pandemic.

The Cancun Airport is located just 30 minutes from the hotel zone of Cancun and services the state of Quintana Roo from Cancun all the way south to the border of Belize. This includes the destinations of Isla Mujeres, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and all the hidden places in between.

The Cancun Airport has four terminals, terminal 1 is primarily private air travel, terminal 2 is mostly domestic and terminals 3 and 4 are the busiest for welcoming visitors from the USA, Canada and the UK. There is a free shuttle that runs between terminals if your group is arriving on different airlines from different parts of the world.

When landing in the Cancun Airport, be prepared to go through immigration with your passport and travel documents in hand. There is no longer a requirement for a paper “tourist visa” or FMM at the Cancun Airport, you will receive a stamp valid for 180 days in your passport.

After picking up your luggage at the Cancun Airport baggage claim, you will make your way through Customs which may include a random search of your belongings. Pack smart and don’t take risks with what you are bringing in!

Now comes what some consider to be the trickiest part of arriving at the Cancun Airport,”The Gauntlet of Sharks”. There will be salespeople doing their best to capture your attention to get in their transportation or to go on a timeshare tour with promises of great gifts. It can be overwhelming, it is noisy, it is confusing and the best way to get through the Cancun Airport is to keep a smile on your face, just keep walking and saying “NO GRACIAS” until you find your pre-booked Cancun Airport Transportation greeters. The “sharks” will straight up lie to you and tell you that your transportation has already left and that you need to pay again to get to your hotel.

It is important to note that you cannot simply hail a taxi at the Cancun Airport, it is illegal and highly risky to get into a pirate cab. Rideshare apps like Uber are NOT available at the Cancun Airport either, it is best to reserve your Cancun Airport transportation in advance.

With pre-booked Cancun Airport transportation you are guaranteed a light at the end of the tunnel and NO negotiating or bargaining with unscrupulous vendors. Reserve with Happy Shuttle Cancun and your pre-paid transportation will be waiting for you to make the transfer to your hotel easy peasy, fresh and breezy. Just keep walking until you find our greeters in neon green holding the easy to spot Happy Shuttle Cancun sign. Ensure the greeters have your name and confirmation number on their list, then let them lead the way to your impeccably clean, air-conditioned van. And voila, you are on your way to your Happy place!

Knowing what to expect from Cancun Airport Transportation services will save you time and money and stress. Be prepared, book ahead and then simply enjoy your Cancun vacation!
