We usually go first week of Dec, and usually we are the only flight arriving in the hall, terminal 3 and it's quick.

We went first week of March and it was like 2.5 hrs to get thru. No room in the hall and people waiting on the escalators, that had to be turned off. I never knew the Spring Break crowds could be to intense.

I’ve been twice in May and experienced what the last post described. Queuing on the escalators and over 2 hours to get through. And that was without spring break. By far the worst airport for arriving I have ever been to. However I love the dominos and Starbucks in departures so all is forgiven 😊

Today Saturday afternoon the airport was crowded but the lines moved as fast as ever. About 30 from landing to the outside of the airpot.

No one can really tell you how it will be when you arrive. Too many variables. As said in the various posts, it can be from a very short wait up to a two hour wait.

I went to Cancun last month & was out of the airport about 30 min after landing (the plane landed at 12:45pm). The longest part of the wait was for our luggage. We talked to people at our resort who arrived the same day but a few hours later, it took them over 2 hours to get out of the airport.

Our arrivals at CUN have never been more than 45 minutes, but we’ve had departures that took 2+hours with lines at ticketing kiosks and security.
