There are Cancun Airport Transportation agencies that you can contact if you want to get from one point to another, acquire an open service and live the comfort of private transportation, there is also the option of renting a taxi when leaving the airport. One disadvantage is that taxi rates are usually very high and can increase if you go to various areas such as downtown Cancun or the hotel zone.

If you prefer a more comfortable option, you can get a Cancun Car Rental, because you can drive it yourself and get to the place you want in a fast and practical way.
