Due to increasing traffic, at the beginning of November 2017, Cancun International Airport opened Terminal 4 doors.
Cancun Airport Terminal 4
It has everything an International Airport should have. Travelers will find several services, such as:
- Information desks
- Flight Information Display
- Public telephone services
- Luggage Protection Services (secure wrap).
- Food and beverage services
- Public Toilets
- Duty-Free stores
- Car rental agencies
- Ground transportation.
As the extension of Terminal 4 are brand new facilities, few things were missing, especially signs to direct the passengers to the correct exits. After several months of the official opening, everything is running smoothly. However, there is some information travelers must have upon their arrival at that terminal.
Immigration filter, Baggage claim, and Customs clearance at Cancun Airport Terminal 4
The path from getting off the plane, pass through Inmigrations (in case of International flight) and baggage claim is quite short and simple. Airport agents will lead you during this process. Once gone through customs, the next step is to look for the exit and find your Cancun Airport Transportation service.
Watch out for people offering Tourist Information around terminal 4 of the airport
While walking to the exit, travelers will have to walk through a hall full of people offering “Tourist Information”; they are actually OPC’s (i.e. Outside Public Contact, the first link of the time-share selling process). We recommend just to say ‘no thanks’ and continue the way to the exit.
Go straight forward to get out of the Cancun Airport terminal
Travelers will also see rental cars, bus tickets, and other taxi services while walking to the exit. If you already have a booked transportation with Cancun Airport Transportation, just keep on walking unless you are interested in getting information, in which case we recommend to greet the driver first and ask him about it. Drivers will give all the information you may require 100% transparency.
Two ways to exit the airport
Once reached the exit, travelers will find two doors. One is for travelers’ families and the other one is for shuttle, transfer, and transportation companies. Walk out by the second one, unless you have a close person waiting for you.
Do not take the Friends and Family exit. If you do, some taxi drivers will do their best to get you convinced about hiring them for a service that you surely will consider way too expensive. Prevent all this by taking the left exit, the one for Hotel Shuttle/ Ground Transportation.
