Air Travel

A few national and international flights land at the Aeropuerto Internacional de Cozumel (CZM), 3 km (2 miles) north of San Miguel, but flights to Cancún are usually less expensive. A small airline called Mayair offers comfortable twin turbo-prop service between Cancún and Cozumel; one-way flights start at about MX$905, and luggage is limited to 20 kg (44 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 MX$350 and take about three hours.

The Cozumel airport is less than 10 minutes from downtown. On arrival, take a colectivo (a van seating up to eight) to your hotel; fares range from MX$100 to MX$350 per person depending on where you’re going.
