first timers to Cancun airport.

As my daughter is taking her very first "parent free" trip this week I want to tell all first timers something the rest of us know so well: when leaving the airport avoid at all costs the " officials" to the left and right of the exit doors. They do NOT work for your hotel/transfer/tour companies. They are Aggressive sellers and I hVd been grabbed, chastised and shouted at all as they try to corral you into a corner. Hour transfer company is not allowed inside the doors and they are waiting politely and patiently outside in the sun for you. Dont feel bad if you have to be firm with these indoor handlers. Good luck. And yes u feel it is safe as I am letting my 18 year old go ( she has watched mommy navigate Mexico many times I taught her well). Adios friends.

It sounds as if you've primed your daughter well but here's a blow-by-blow account I wrote a few monts ago regarding the Cancun airport arrivals procedure which you/shemay find useful - tripadvisor.ca/…52125624
