Cancun/Riviera Maya

Cancun International Airport (CUN) is the point of entry to the "Mundo Maya." One of the busiest airports in the Caribbean, CUN sees direct and connecting flights arriving daily from all over the world. The two terminals used for domestic and international flights offer banks, convenience stores, a beauty parlor, VIP lounges, and a business center, as well as a host of restaurants, bars, and duty-free shops.

Traveling around Cancun by bus is easy and inexpensive, and you can catch one every few minutes along the main streets. Taxis are also plentiful, but establish the fare before you get in. A list of designated fares can be found in the lobby of most hotels, or you can ask the concierge. Taxis and buses are available in Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos, Puerto Aventuras, and other towns along the Riviera Maya, but if you plan to travel throughout this area, consider renting a car, as distances are great.
