Cancun attracts many tourists during the holidays and winter months. Many people travel to Cancun’s beaches and around downtown Cancun to attend various winter music festivals and events, causing the streets to get even more crowded.
Cancun International Airport is the 10th busiest airport in the world, with an average of over 500 daily flights. Most major international airlines offer direct flights into Cancun at competitive prices.
On the other hand, Cozumel International Airport is significantly smaller and much simpler to operate. However, there are direct flights to Cozumel, typically from Canada, the United States, and other Mexican cities.
