Taxi from Airport at 1:00 AM?

Our plane will be landing at Cancun airport slightly after 1:00 AM. I was told there are no low-cost shuttles operating at that time between the airport and the hotel zone. Would it be possible to get a regular taxi (not some overpriced limo service) at that time to take us to our hotel? Also, our hotel (Holiday Inn Express) claims to be in the hotel zone but it is actually not on the main Kukulcan Blvd. Would that make a difference in the price? Thanks in advance for your advice!!!

I don't know when the shuttle services stop running from the airport to the hotel zone and would suggest you contact the Holiday Inn Express to see if they can tell you.

During our last trip we arrived in Cancun at 1:30 AM and booked a private transfer because we knew ahead of time that the ADO buses would not be operating at such a late hr. Rather than go through the hassle of trying to find a taxi driver and negotiate a price (rates are always higher leaving the airport, even with standard taxis), we decided on the convenience of a private transfer.

I'm so glad we did this -- our driver was waiting for us upon arrival and promptly drove us to our hotel in Playa Del Carmen. The entire experience was quick, seam-less and professional.

For the most competitive rates with a reliable company that many have used here on TA, I would recommend Canada Transfers. A one-way private transfer from the airport to the hotel zone is $30 for 2 or 3 people. Contact them to see if the rate is the same from the airport to the Holiday Inn Express - www.canadatransfers.com/transfers/

Good luck!

A taxi from the airport is high priced, about $60us and that's one way.

Check with Best Day, $9 per person

Yellow Transfers will take you in a shared van 24 hours a day . At this hour, 12 dollars per person and they do request an advance reservation on their website.
