When you go on vacation, you want to feel like a VIP. You’ve worked hard, so you deserve it – and you’re not alone in feeling that way.
Cancun is home to Mexico’s second-largest airport, which has over 30 million visitors passing through each year – and this number keeps increasing, despite the pandemic. Cancun has spotted this growing market and is catering to it with gusto.
With so many tourists entering the country by air, there are more takers for VIP airport services, to minimize stress and up the luxury factor. You can take advantage of the VIP lounges, use the meet and greet service, or arrange a VIP transfer, making sure you start and finish your vacation in style.
● VIP Lounge
Terminals 2 and 3 at Cancun Airport both have a VIP Lounge, and each is bookable in advance. It’s great for getting away from the crowds and kicking back during the (sometimes long) wait for the announcement of your departure gate. The VIP Lounges are free to use for Premier Pass holders, business-class, and first-class travelers. Other visitors can pay an entry fee at the door.
● Terminal 3
Open daily from 7 am until 10 pm, the Mera VIP Business Lounge Lounge is exclusively for passengers waiting to board departing international flights. You’ll have to pay $29 usd to enter, and priority pass or business class tickets won’t exempt you from this, but because of that it’s less crowded than some lounges. The lounge offers hot and cold meals. Pasta, sandwiches, tamales, hummus, veggies and salads. The lounge is located in Terminal 3 after security next to Gate 17.
● Terminal 2
This VIP Lounge is open from 6 am until 10 pm each day, and is available exclusively for passengers with scheduled flight departures. The lounge offers hot drinks and snacks, comfortable seating, and tables, but conferencing facilities are chargeable. Guests are limited to 3 hours for international flights and 2 hours for domestic.
● VIP Meet And Greet With Fast Track
There are a number of private companies offering Meet and Greet packages at Cancun airport.
Using this service will save you precious time, so you can be en route to your resort much more quickly. It’s also great to know someone will be there to guide you through what can sometimes be a stressful and confusing process.
One company offering this service is AssistAnt which has over a decade of experience, and promises clients the following assistance:
- You will be met at the arrivals gate and driven to passport control.
- They will assist with collecting your luggage.
- They’ll take you through the customs process.
- If you’ve arranged a transfer service, your rep will make sure you find your driver and are on your way safely.
- They will arrange transportation for you from your accommodation to the airport if required.
- Use their expedited services to get through check-in, security, and passport control quickly and easily.
- If you’re a first-class/business ticket holder, you will be escorted right to your departure gate.
● VIP Transfer Service
Once you’re through all the formalities of the airport, you may want to add on a VIP transfer service too. This is perfect to avoid the confusion and potential lines you may encounter when arranging your own transport at a busy international airport.
We recently tested out Cancun VIP Transfers and the company did an amazing job. Our driver was on time waiting at the arrivals area with our name on a sign. The Escalade was luxurious, comfortable and well stocked with ice cold, water, soda and beer.
Of course, there are other, less costly ways to get from the airport to your resort such as Cancun Transfers Van Service.
