Airport Car Rental

Why not get your rental car right at Cancun Airport? Cancun is all about the beach, and many beautiful public beaches are just a short drive from the airport. Besides swimming and working on your tan, you can try out scuba diving, surfing, and other fun water sports and activities.

When you want a break from the beach, how about driving your rental to the amazing MUSA museum of contemporary art? It’s fully underwater and features Cancun’s symbiotic relationship with the marine life surrounding it.

If you’re up for a longer drive, take your rental to Chichen Itza—these ancient ruins of the Mayan civilization are a must see. On the way back to the city, be sure to visit the Parque de las Palapas in the center of Cancun. There you’ll find a great selection of local handicrafts and delicious Mexican food.

Cancun is fascinating, but Mexico has lots more to offer. Get a long-term car rental and explore the Yucatan jungle, head north to Mexico City, or cross the border to the lesser known, but equally fascinating Belize and Guatemala. You can even pick up your rental car at Cancun Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your Mexico adventure today!
