A few national and international flights land at the Aeropuerto Internacional de Cozumel, 3 km (2 miles) north of San Miguel, but flights to Cancún are considerably less expensive. A small airline called Mayair offers flights between Cancún and Cozumel for about $70 each way, with luggage limited to 25 kilos (55 pounds) per passenger. A budget alternative is to take a bus from the Cancún airport to Playa del Carmen and then the ferry to Cozumel. If everything runs on schedule, the trip should cost less than $20 and take about three hours.
From the airport, take a colectivo, a van that seats up to eight, to your hotel; fares range from $7 to $20 per person depending on where you're going.
