How far is Cancun? Map

One of Cancun's main attractions is its proximity to millions of tourists from the United States and Canada. Most direct flights can reach Cancun in less than four hours, making it possible to board a flight in the morning and enjoy drinks on the beach in the afternoon.

When planning your flight, try to arrive in Cancun as early as possible—you'll pay for that first night's hotel whether you arrive at 1pm, or 11pm.

Don't forget, even though your plane arrives at 1pm, it still could take you several hours before you arrive at your hotel. During high-season, we prefer to fly on a weekday when the Cancun airport isn't as busy.
