Private Taxis

To move around Cancun, we recommend using authorised taxis or get your hotel to phone a cab or from the commercial or tourist establishment where you are located. At the airport, taxis are located at the outputs of Terminal 2 and 3. If you decide to use this means of transport, you need to purchase tickets on installed modules. It is quite likely there may be long queues to purchase tickets. All taxi fares are priced per trip, not per person, most taxis have a capacity of up to 4 people and vehicles in some cases for up to 3 passengers.


The service is available from 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 pm at Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 service is available 24 hrs. Visitors cannot pay with credit card credit card. In case of not having cash, visitors should contact their operator to indicate the nearest ATM and thus make the payment in cash. When you make your reservation, we will e-mail you a detailed arrival confirmation, as well as some instructions for your arrival and checkout service (outward or return). We will know if your flight is delayed since we keep track, as well as when your flight lands. Do not be concerned and take your time in immigration, our representatives will be waiting for you outside the building with a banner or sign.




Public taxis

Cancun offers a large taxi fleet to get around the city. Taxis are safe, reliable and fast, although you should bear in mind the difference in rates that can apply between the urban area and the Hotel Zone. The cost of a taxi ride to downtown Cancun is considerably lower than in Cancun Island, thus within the Hotel Zone is more cost effective to use buses (especially if you have to go between downtown and the Island).



The most economical means of transport to go from/to the downtown and the Hotel Zone (single ticket costs $8.5 pesos) or within the Hotel Zone along Kukulcan Boulevard (ticket around $11 pesos). Buses (also called "trucks") going from the Hotel Zone to downtown have a "Downtown" sign on the front window, those travelling from downtown to hotels have a "Hotels" sign.


There are excellent tourist bus companies to travel to locations around Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen or Chichen Itza. Frequent and daily service is available at the ADO Bus Terminal in Cancun (Pino Lote 1 and 2, Super manzana 23, Benito Juarez) to get around in the Yucatan Peninsula. There are also frequent trips to the airport for a very convenient and affordable price for those without transfer included from the hotel.
