Tips for a Better Travel Experience in Cancun Airport

Cancun Airport is the second largest in Mexico and one of the largest in Latin America. Cancun Airport received over 25 Million passengers only during 2018. Cancun and Mayan Riviera continue to be one of the safest places in Mexico where you can enjoy peace and quiet or never-ending parties and dance. However, due to the huge number of passengers arriving, Cancun airport can sometimes be overwhelming and stressing. You might even take more than one hour from the moment you leave your plane till you exit the airport. Moreover, it can get even worse when you cross the exit door to the Taxis and Tour Operators area.

Don’t worry, all is fine, you will find a lot of people, which can cause an impact. However most of the people you will see there are honest Tourist Operators waiting for their passengers from a pre-hired service. The issue lies in the fact that “most” is not “all”.

The importance of pre-hiring a transfer:

When you pre-hire a private transfer, you ensure that someone will be waiting for you, and only for you, at the exit of the airport. For example, if you hired a transfer from Cancun to Tulum or any other destination in the Mayan Riviera, the transportation company will be waiting for you with a sigh with your name on it.  You will not have to deal with waiting on line to purchase a ticket for a taxi, or waiting for a van to be filled with passengers to be on your way. You will also not go hotel hopping dropping passengers off, which can take a lot of time from your precious vacations.

After being on the go all day since the time you left home, then wait 2 hours or more to get on your plane, the flight hours, the endless lines at migration and customs, and the hassle of the people when you exit the airport, wouldn’t you like someone to be ready to pick you up and be on your way to your hotel in a recent model, air conditioned, clean, safe and comfortable van only for your party?

You will most likely be approached by some persons arguing your transfer will not be there and that will even tell you the van broke and they will not be arriving or any sort of excuse for you to go with them, attention this is not true. They want your business and will only make you lose money, time and peace. If you booked with Paradise Transfers or any other legal and fully authorized company, we will be there. If you don’t see us for any reason, remember you have several ways to get in touch with you such as our WhatsApp number, local phone, cell phone or email. There is free Wi-Fi at the airport. Paradise Transfers will always be there for you or we will try to contact you with any means you gave us to contact you.

One of the greatest advantages when booking online a pre -hired transfer is the price. You will find the best prices online and from stablished and proven companies.

So, begin to enjoy your stay since the moment you are with your transportation company. You can even order drinks or stop at a convenience store to get snacks and drinks.

Once you arrive to your destination your options increase exponentially. You can enjoy the amazing beaches, exquisite regional and famous Mexican food, indulge yourself with breath-taking views of the area or have a tour to any of the magnificent zones of the region.
Mayan Riviera has a lot to offer, beaches, cenotes, Mayan archaeological zones, fine cuisine, ecological parks, top shopping and wellness retreats; all within your reach.

Happy vacation!

The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,

The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,

The depth of a family need,

When there was nothing more to add,

Therefore, we want to offer you a taste of some real pre-Hispanic Mexican cuisine which is very popular in the Yucatan Peninsula. This dish has a very particular name which derives from the way it is prepared. It is called "Pescado Tikin-Xic", which is a very special fish stew.

You can enjoy it in almost all the Yucatan Peninsula but specially in the states of Yucatan and Quintana Roo in the area of Isla Mujeres. Whether you have a tour by the island either with a guide, or by yourself in one of the rented golf carts, delight yourself with this fish dish in one of the several restaurants you can find on the Island.

This dish mostly served with rice, tortillas and cabbage salad. Chances are if you take a tour in Isla Mujeres you will find yourself eating this delicacy prepared with the ancient recipes of the older Mayas.

Worth to mention it is delicious!  

This Yucatan fish stew is defined by the presence of the paste of "achiote" or annatto, a classic condiment of the Yucatan cuisine that is made basically from sour orange juice and seeds of the annatto, seasoned with cumin, clove and black pepper.

Throughout the Peninsula you can find diverse pre-Hispanic spices differentiated  by its color from green to black passing thru shades of Orange. For example, in the Mérida market has a section exclusively dedicated to these spices. People selling this spices are happy to explain the Mayan techniques used in the local cuisine to prepare this spices!

In the US you can find the achiote prepared in a jar in several sections of Hispanic food in some supermarkets.


1 fish white and firm whole meat... something like 1 ½ kg, without head or scales and cost centre into two fillets
100 grams of achiote paste
1/3 cup orange juice (orange juice and white vinegar mix)
1 small green pepper, cut into wedges
1 güero chile, seedless and cut into wedges
½ tomato cut into slices
1 small red onion into rings cost
1 teaspoon dry oregano
½ Cup of beer
1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
1 softened banana leaf


First you have to wash the fish thoroughly with water and dry well with paper towels. Evenly sprinkle the salt and pepper. Mix the paste of achiote with orange juice and pour it evenly over the fish.

Let it marinate for about 3 hours, then place the fish on the banana leaf; then evenly distribute the peppers, tomato and onion on top add the oregano, the olive oil and beer.

Wrap the banana leaf may completely around the fish and place it in a container for baking. Cook in the oven at 350° c for about 40 minutes or until a fork easily penetrates through the foil wrapper.  You can also grill it without the banana leaf.

Serve and enjoy!
