Immigration & Customs


When you reach the arriving terminal, you will be guided to the immigration hall where you will form a line and wait for your turn with the immigration officer. You will 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 Cancun.

Getting Around Cancun


The overall layout of Cancun is tourist-friendly and easy to explore. If you need to get around town, 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 Cancun is by renting a car, but make sure the car is in good condition or the police may stop you.
