Cancun International Airport
Located 16 km (9 miles) southwest of the heart of Cancun and 10 km (6 miles) from the Hotel Zone southernmost point, Cancun International Airport receives direct scheduled flights from many cities, including New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., Houston, Dallas, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Charlotte, and Atlanta. An increasing number of direct charter flights from other cities are also available. Hourly buses link the airport to downtown Cancun; taxis, colective transport, hotel shuttles, and rental cars are other options.
Rent a Car
If you are planning to visit only Cancún, you don't need to (and probably shouldn't) rent a car. But if you want to explore the region, a car can be convenient if expensive.
In Cancun there are several companies where you can rent a car, you can even make your hiring at the Airport.
