That’s mainly for small low-budget airlines.

Cancun Airport Terminal two

Terminal 2

Handles mostly domestic flights but also some international flights.

Cancun Airport Terminal three

Terminal 3

Which is almost brand new handles mostly International flights from the United States and Europe and it has two runways that can work simultaneously giving the airport the possibility of a bigger operation.

Cancun Airport Terminal four

Terminal 4

Was inaugurated in 2017 to receive national and international flights.

Cancun International Airport is the first airport in Mexico to have four terminals, and this is something it really needs since the traffic is getting bigger every year and the hotel offer in Cancun and the Riviera Maya is getting bigger too.


ASUR (Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste) is the official company that operates the Cancun Airport. You can visit their official site at https://www.asur.com.mx/, beware of other websites you’ll find on Google claiming to be the official site.

Cancun Airport to Tulum

Getting to Tulum can be actually easy by booking transportation in advance. If you are traveling by plane and don't book transportation, it can be slower than expected as the closest airport is Cancun Airport (until Tulum Airport is officially on business).

The average transportation time from Cancun Airport to Tulum is 2:00 hrs. This will vary according to the exact location where you are going, weather, and traffic conditions at the time of your service. The best time to avoid traffic is before 7:00 or after 21:00 since hotel workers whose workday starts between 8:00 - 9:00 and ends between 17:00 - 19:00 take this route on a daily basis.

Tulum Transportation

Tulum Airport Shuttle provides transportation from each of the 4 terminals with a prior reservation made on our website.

In order to get to us, you first need to go through baggage claim, then customs, and then pass the hall where you’ll see tour vendors as well as the Timeshare people. As you walk up to the exit, follow the hall to the “pre-purchase transportation area”, which you can identify by all the vans and private transportation shuttles that are parked there. Be careful not to follow people to the “family and friends” pick-up area.

Once you meet, show him your confirmation email and follow him to your vehicle. Verify you are bringing all your luggage pieces, and let the driver load it into the trunk, hop up in the vehicle and get yourself comfortable. If you added drinks to your service while booking, you may want to ask your driver for them in case you are thirsty after the flight. While on the way, don't forget to shoot a nice selfie and tag #FollowTheSuitcase on your Social Media post, we'd love to see how you enjoy and share your experience.
