Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
Thomas Cook Airlines fly out of Terminal 1, while Thomson Airways fly from Terminal 2. Terminal 1 is the airport's newest terminal. Cancun is outside the EU, so you can enjoy a duty free discount in stores like Biza Duty Free, Boux Avenue, Monsoon and Fatface. Pick up some poolside reading at WHSmith, or stock up on sunscreen at Boots. There are good food options, ranging from cafes (Starbucks, Upper Crust) to restaurants (Cafe Balzar, Giraffe). You can enjoy cocktails and tapas at Bar MCR, or kick back with some self-serve beer at The Grain Loft. Terminal 2 is slightly smaller, with a functional range of shops (including airport favourites Dixons Travel, Biza Duty Free and Boots) as well as two coffee bars, a pub, a Burger King and Frankie & Benny's. Every airport customer can enjoy one hour of free Wi-Fi. If you want to kick off your holiday in style you can check in to the Escape Lounge for £19.99* per person. This includes comfy seating, unlimited internet access, and a complimentary selection of food and drink.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Don't entertain the touts who hang around the international arrivals area. Official taxis are pre-paid and you can buy your tickets from the podiums beside the ranks. If you want to take a public bus, walk over to domestic arrivals. The buses run between the airport and bus station in Cancun, where you can find a taxi to take you to your hotel. If you're hiring a car you can take the free shuttle bus to the car hire centre. Compare car hire at Cancun Airport now.
You need a valid passport to fly to Cancun from Manchester. If you're visiting Mexico on your holidays you won't need a visa, you simply need to fill in an immigration form on the plane. This grants you your tourist card, which you need to present when it's time to come home again. If you lose it during your stay in Cancun you can buy a replacement at the airport immigration office. If you're heading to Mexico for work, even if it's voluntary, you will need to get a visa from the Mexican Embassy. You can't change your visa type once you arrive, so double check that you're definitely applying for the right one.
What to expect in Cancun
Cancun is five hours behind Manchester and the currency is the Mexican Peso ($).
