Cozumel Taxi Rates To/From Cozumel Airport
Cozumel Taxi Rates FROM Cozumel Airport
Mexican Pesos Bills & CoinsOnce travelers arrive at the Cozumel International Airport and clear Immigration and Customs then it's time to be transported to vacation rentals, condos and hotels all over the island for a relaxing week of fun in the sun. The good news and the bad news is that there are few options for leaving the Cozumel Airport.

Good news because it makes it simple to explain but bad news in that there is no competition and taxi rates are fixed at a per person rate that travelers pay whether they like it or not. Incredibly nothing has changed in the past 20 years since our arrival to the island: hotels, vacation properties and other businesses are NOT allowed to provide a courtesy shuttle to take their guests out of the airport. Some one from the hotel or property may be there to GREET certain V.I.P. travelers but unless they purchase a shuttle taxi ticket and DONATE it to the taxi coordinator to look the other way, greeters cannot transport travelers out of the airport.

The Airport Taxi Shuttle Union effectively has a monopoly on travelers as they leave the airport. Simply exit the Customs area with your bags, purchase a ticket at the Airport Taxi Shuttle booth inside the airport lobby and go outside to be loaded into vans leaving for the hotel zones. The only ways for travelers to avoid utilizing this taxi union are ~

  • 1. Walk out of the airport to the Swallow statue on the corner of Avenida 65 and Airport Road
    and wait for a "street" taxi to come along.
  • 2) Rent a car there at the airport Show Me the Options

    Cozumel Taxi Rates to Cozumel Airport
    Whatever was paid to the Airport Taxi Shuttle union to get you from the airport to your hotel is irrelevant for estimating what it will cost to get back to the airport at the end of your vacation since the OTHER taxi union (White with Red stripes) is the only one authorized to drop off (rather than pick up) travelers at the airport and this taxi union has different taxi rates than the Airport Taxi Shuttle union. Since the US Dollar exchange rate varies daily, all taxi fares for around town and getting to the airport are listed in Mexican Pesos and should be used as guidelines when checking fares with drivers. If you pay in US Dollars you will not be given a very good exchange rate and thus will end up paying more that the fares listed below.
