More About Flights to Puerto Morelos

Are you wondering how to reach Puerto Morelos? For starters, book a flight into the main international airport in Cancun, Mexico (CUN). Located about twenty minutes south of the airport, Puerto Morelos is accessible via a well-maintained four-lane highway. Read on for more great tips to plan your trip!

What are Some Things I Should Know Before Booking my Flight to Puerto Morelos?

Puerto Morelos, along with the entire Riviera Maya region, is an extremely popular Spring Break destination. To get the best rates on flights, avoid traveling during key Spring break weeks, which are generally early March through mid-April.

Cancun International Airport is one of the busiest airports in Mexico. There are a number of major airlines with direct flights to Cancun from the United States, including Delta, American Airlines, Delta, Frontier Airlines, Aeromexico, and United Airlines. 

What is the Best Way to Get to and From the Airport? 

Road transfers are easy between the international airport in Cancun and hotels in Puerto Morelos. Most travelers staying in an all-inclusive or other large resort will have access to the hotel’s transportation busses. These group hotel transfers typically range from $20 to $40 U.S. Dollars per person.

There are also lots of private transfer companies in the greater Cancun area. If you have a large group, consider getting a transfer quote from a private transfer company, as it may be less expensive to book a van for your group than the per-person transfer fee charged by some hotels.

If you have booked a vacation rental or other private residence and plan to explore Puerto Morelos and the Riviera Maya during your vacation, consider renting a car. Driving in the Riviera Maya is generally easy and safe. The main highway that runs the length of the Riviera Maya is called the 307. Be sure to pay close attention to the speed limits, which tend to change often and with little notice, and keep an eye out for topes, or speed bumps, as you approach intersections, public transit stops, and small towns along the road. 

Taxis are not allowed to pick you up at the airport, but they can bring you back. If you have time and are looking to save money, consider taking a local bus, called a collectivo. This involves walking a bit from the airport to the bus stop, and the schedule is variable because the busses don’t depart until they're full.

Are There Any Hotels Near the Airport in Cancun? 

The closest hotel to the Cancun airport is the Courtyard Marriott Cancun Airport. This hotel features 32-inch LCD televisions, air conditioning, iPod docking stations, free Wi-Fi, and sound proof windows in every room. Be sure to take advantage of the hotel's complimentary airport transfers.

What is Navigating Customs in Cancun Like?

Upon international arrival, all travelers head to the customs area. Here you’ll find two lines for passport inspection. This process can take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on how many flights happen to be arriving at the same time. 

After passport inspection and baggage claim, all luggage must be scanned through a machine prior to exiting the terminal. Here, one member of each party pushes a button, which assigns a manual check at random. A red light signifies a hand check and a green light means you can exit the secure area of the airport.

What Amenities Can I Find at the Airport? 

The Cancun International Airport is one of the busiest airports in Mexico, and also one of the nicest. Generally clean, well maintained and organized, flying through CUN is a pleasant experience.

Starbucks coffee shops are found at check-in as well as gate-side. The airport’s flagship restaurant is a lively Jimmy Buffet Margaritatville, located in the center of the main international terminal. The menu here includes burgers, quesadillas, handmade guacamole, and as expected, cervesas and margaritas. 

A large duty-free shopping area is found immediately upon exiting security. Other shopping in the terminal includes a large souvenir shop and smaller kiosks selling sunglasses, snacks, and pharmacy items. 

With many airlines flying to Puerto Morelos via the Cancun International Airport, this charming Mexican town is easily accessible for a relaxing beach vacation.
