        Airlines list and phones  

Airport to hotel transportation

The airport is 5 miles far from the first hotel in the hotel zone, and the farest hotel is about 10 miles far from there. Airport to hotels transportation are concessions to some companies for better service, fees, etc. and they uses only Mini-Vans or Deluxe cars.

The fare is approx. $10 US from Airport to Hotel zone or downtown, ask the driver for other destinations.

There are not Taxis in the airport for transportation, is foribidden for taxi drivers to pick up tourists there. They only can leave people at the airport.

Airlines

Here is a listing of the airlines and their phone numbers in Cancun. If dialing from the United States, you must dial 011-5298 and then the number. You would probably prefer to find a US number to avoid long distance charges.

Cancun's airport is located about three miles inland from the southern end of the Hotel Zone. A departure tax of US$12, also payable in pesos, is collected for all international flights.

 

Buses of public service

Public buses, city buses and taxi vans, some of them air-conditioned, run between downtown and the Hotel Zone from 6 a.m. till midnight. The service is dependable and drivers will stops if you flag them down. The trip anywhere on the island costs only $3.00 (about $0.40 US). Buses can be crowded during rush hours--from 8 to 9 a.m., 1 to 2 p.m., 4 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.

Buses to other cities in Mexico

Taxis

Taxis are available 24 hours a day at the hotels and practically everywhere. Taxis are the simplest way to get around Cancun, and fares are moderate. Cabs are plentiful in the Hotel Zone and downtown; you can either flag one down or go to a taxi stand. Rates are posted at many hotel entrances, but you should establish the fare with the driver before getting in. Although tips are not expected, they are always appreciated. We recommend you to ask for the fare before getting in (the doorkeeper at the hotel or your tour representative can help you with the acceptable fares).

Car Rental

Rental cars, primarily standard-shift subcompacts and four-wheel-drive vehicles, are available at the airport and throughout Cancun. You can rent an automatic car with air-conditioning if you reserve it in advance. You can also hire a big, late-model car with air-conditioning and an English-speaking chauffeur at many hotel travel desks. There are no rental cars available on Isla Mujeres; you can, however, bring a car over on the Punta Sam ferry.

International road signs are used in Cancun-- although the words are in Spanish, you'll recognize the signs themselves. Keep your eyes open for bicycles, three-wheeled carts, mopeds and pedestrians, and be especially careful in the traffic circles. One final word of advice: Look out for yellow signs with small mountains on them--they indicate topes, or speed bumps, ahead--sometimes immediately ahead.

In town, the limit is generally 40 km/hr (approx 25 mi/hr) and in the Hotel Zone 60 km/hr approx 37 mi/hr), with busy sections at 40 km/hr. Highways range between 90 km/hr (approx 55 mi/hr) and 100 km/hr (approx 68 mi/hr). Speed bumps are a very popular way of keeping drivers within the speed limits, look for them when entering and leaving towns and villages. If they catch you off guard, they can knock you senseless!

If you run out of gas or break down, don't leave the vehicle; Mexico's "Green Angels," part of the Tourism Department, patrol the main roads and will lend you assistance.

If you would like to rent a car while in Cancun, here are some phone numbers for you. Remember to dial 011-5298 plus the number when dialing from the USA.
