Fly from Cancun to New York City

Located on the Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun has a vibrant party scene and tropical ambiance. However, a flight to New York City lets you explore historic skyscrapers and iconic monuments. The Statue of Liberty epitomizes New York City, yet there are plenty of hidden cultural gems to explore, including The Cloisters and the Rubin Museum of Art. Cancun International Airport (CUN) can be reached by car via the Mexican Federal Highway 307. A non-stop flight from CUN to New York City lasts four hours.


Upon entering the Empire State Building, you'll be dazzled by Art Deco murals that cover the marble floors and walls. Take the elevator to the 86th floor to spot New York City's skyline from an outdoor observation deck. After getting aerial views of Central Park, visit this large green space in the heart of Manhattan. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History are among the largest museums that flank Central Park. Visit Brooklyn's Prospect Park and Queens' Flushing-Meadows Corona Park, both of which feature zoos and botanical gardens.

Hints and tips

Thanks to 24-hour service by the automated AirTrain, there's rarely a problem with making ground transportation connections at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). If you have plans to fly from Cancun to New York City during the winter season, bundle up for freezing conditions. Summer temperatures in New York City reach the 90s, so T-shirts and sunglasses are appropriate attire for outdoor festivals like the Dominican Day Parade.
