Immigration & Customs
When you reach the arriving terminal, you’ll be guided to the immigration hall where you’ll form a line and wait for your turn with the immigration officer. Supply the officer with your passport and answer a few routine questions about the nature of your stay. Regarding customs, for US and European travelers, all you need to do is produce a current passport in order to enter and leave Riviera Maya.
Getting to Your Hotel
Travelers have concerns about vacationing in Mexico. For the past several years, Cheapcaribbean.com has partnered with Amstar as our premier transportation company to provide safe, comfortable and professional transportation for our clients from the airport to and from your hotel and back. They’ll also provide transportation to any excursions booked through our site that you’d like to take while you’re in your destination.
Amstar is also the official transportation rep for CheapCaribbean.com excursions when you book vacations to Mexico on our site. The majority of our partner hotels have an Amstar desk in or near the lobby so they’re easy to find, should you need them. For this reason, we suggest that our guests do not rent cars while in the Caribbean or Mexico as traffic laws and road quality and street signs are not the same as they are in the US.
Getting Around Riviera Maya
The overall layout of Riviera Maya is tourist-friendly and easy to explore. If you need to get around the area, the bus is the preferred mode of transportation as it's both affordable and operates throughout the day. If you'd rather have some privacy, taxis are always available, but can be a bit expensive to use so make sure you agree upon the fare before getting in. Another popular way to get around Riviera Maya is by renting a car, but make sure the car is in good condition or the police may stop you.
