Traveling from Cancun to Cuba is super easy although it can be a tad confusing for the first time visitor. So we put together this little article to let you know everything you need to get from Cancun to Cuba hassle free! (And while you are in Cancun maybe consider a trip to Tulum too!)
Cancun to Cuba
There are daily flights from Cancun airport to Havana run by Interjet, our new favorite airline. Interjet is a Mexican low cost airline that runs several flights a day to Havana and if you are lucky these flights are going to be around $90 one way. Once your flight is booked, all you have to do is get yourself to the airport.
Get the Tourist Visa
The first thing to do when you arrive at the airport in Cancun is to get a tourist visa for Cuba. Everyone needs to purchase one and the simplest way to do that is in line for check in. Interjet makes it super easy by having someone right there in line and you don’t have to go hunt them down. Make sure you have cash for the visa. The visa cost us $350 pesos or around $16 for the visa. In comparison, we ran into people who flew direct from New York, San Francisco and LAX and their visas were upwards of $75-$100 as the visa cost is determined by the airline. The same goes for flying out of Canada as well.
Once you have purchased your tourist card, check into your flight....
