Getting to Playa del Carmen

Cancun International Airport, code CUN, is the nearest airport. From the airport you’ll take what is known as a transfer. A transfer can be one of many options.

Another way to get from the Cancun International Airport to your final destination is to ask your hotel or resort if they offer transfer from the airport.
