Transport for an early morning flight

Got an international departure at 7am so guessing we need to be at Cancun airport about 5.30am but staying in Playa. Who will offer the best service at 4.30 in the morning??? Cheers

We use Thomas More Travel, I think they would pick you up when you want.

In another recent thread some posters have mentioned private transfer companies that they've used to get to the airport. You may want to look into a few of these companies and contact them to find out if they are able to transport you that early in the morning.

Otherwise, if your hotel is "flexible" meaning you can cancel a day or two, you may want to look into staying at a hotel by the airport the night before just so you can sleep in a bit more.

I would not chance anything less than arriving 2 hours before your flight departs.

We were at the Royal Haciendas last year and had the same problem.

We found that just a private taxi was the best & cheapest way to go.

We just asked the bell captain to have us one out front in the AM, and it was there when we asked. And was a very nice ride to the airport.

Hope this helps. Have a nice trip.

We alway use cancuntransfers @ www.cancuntransfers.com and they work around the clock. So If you need a 3:00 AM pick up they will be there with a smile on their face. Or the idea of just get a taxi outside your hotel is another great idea.

Have a great vacation and next time try to book a later flight so you can sleep a bit!!

Agree with Fishboy. The easiest way to go is just to have your hotel have a taxi waiting--and to confirm the price. No reason to go through all the arrangements for a transfer. Have done this often in the past and always worked very well.

Generally it is required to be at CUN 3H in advance, but at that hour I dont think you need that much time. I would contract with a private car service -- you can do that by email -- then have concierge in your hotel (or front desk) call the car service the day before to confirm.
