Cancun airport has all the appurtenances one would expect at one of the world's mega-airports. Facilities include ATMs, bureau de change, business facilities, restaurants, shops, a beauty salon and tourist information. There are facilities for disabled passengers but those with special needs are advised to contact their airline in advance.

Spanish is the official language in Mexico. Some English is spoken in tourist regions.

Mexican currency is the New Peso (MXN) divided into 100 centavos. Credit cards are widely accepted, particularly Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Travellers cheques are generally accepted, but cannot be cashed on Sundays. ATMs are available in most cities and towns and are the most convenient way to get money, but for safety reasons they should only be used during business hours. Although most businesses will accept foreign currency it is best to use pesos. Foreign currency can be exchanged at one of many casas de cambio(exchange houses), which have longer hours and offer a quicker service than the banks.

Terminal Transfers

A shuttle bus runs between the main entrances to the terminals every 10 mins.
