Airport Public Transit Directory


Cancun has a safe and very inexpensive public transportation system.  You can get
to most parts of the city, including the hotel zone and tourist areas for about 8 1/2
pesos.  But the buses do not serve the airport.  First, see if your hotel provides free
or cheap airport transfers, or if your vacation package includes transportation.  If not,
the most affordable option is to take the bus that leaves from the Airport Bus Station
(terminals 2 and 3) to either downtown Cancun or Playa Del Carmen.  The bus
between the airport and Cancun run hourly from 8:00am until 8:00pm, and you can
connect to the public bus system downtown, which will take you to the hotel and
tourist areas.  Fare is US$4.00.  The ride takes about 35 minutes.  Buses to Playa
Del Carmen leave every 30 to 60 minutes from 10:50am until 7:00pm.  Fare is
$10.00 and take 65 minutes.  For information on these services, or any other ground
transportation from Cancun airport, e-mail or call
800-317-1921 (from U.S. and Canada) or 01-800-822-7116 from Mexico.
