Flying out of Detroit

You'll leave Detroit from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, which goes by the international code DTW. You can catch a nonstop flight to Cancun on American Airlines, United Airlines, or US Airways from this airport, or you can look for deals on single-stop flights. Taxis provide transport to the airport for about $45 from downtown Detroit or about $57 from Ann Arbor, Michigan. For a more economical trip to the airport, catch a SMART bus in downtown Detroit, and ride it to the airport bus stop on the outer roadway near the North Terminal. Local transportation companies are also available to offer private car service to the airport.

From fast food venues such as Popeyes, Taco Bell, and Burger King to dining establishments such as Chili's and Tequileria, you'll find plenty to eat at the airport while you wait for your flight. If all you need is a cup of coffee, Starbucks outlets can be found in both airport terminals. You can also enjoy shopping at bookstores and luxury stores while you wait.

Cancun Adventures

Cancun has adventures for everyone, including exploring archeological sites, participating in outdoor recreation, and tanning on the beach. You can also play golf, relax at a local spa, or learn more about traditional Mayan culture in Cancun. The crystal blue water of the Caribbean and white-sand beaches of the Yucatan peninsula make this a popular destination for travelers from Detroit.

Visiting Cancun, Mexico

Travelers from Detroit to Cancun will land at Cancun Airport International, which is located in the northeast part of the Yucatan peninsula. City buses regularly shuttle passengers from the airport into downtown Cancun, and many hotels and resorts offer complimentary shuttle service for arriving guests. You can also hire a taxi to take you to your hotel or rent a car from Hertz, Budget, Thrifty, or Dollar, all of which have rental car offices at the airport.

Cancun has many attractions for every taste. You can enjoy exciting nightlife and fine dining, spend hours on the beach, or explore local culture and history. Embark on a tour to some of the local Mayan ruins, such as those in Coba or El Meco. Kids and the young-at-heart will love swimming with the dolphins at Dolphinaris Cancun and visiting the Interactive Aquarium. Golf enthusiasts will love teeing off at Riviera Cancun Golf or Iberostar Cancun Golf Course. After an exciting day, enjoy dinner theater at Pirate Assault or sip on a cocktail with your dinner at an open-air restaurant or bar in Playa Tortugas.

Because Cancun is in the tropics, it doesn't have four distinct seasons like temperate climates do. Instead, high temperatures stay in the 80s and 90s year-round, and lows stay in the high 60s and 70s. May to October tend to be rainier than other times of year, and if you are traveling during the June through November hurricane season, check to make sure there are no hurricanes or tropical storms heading to the area. The dry months of January and February tend to have the coolest weather, although it is still warm enough to swim and participate in water sports. Summer and spring break are often crowded in Cancun.
