Pulling in and parking at iPark
When you pull into iPark you will go through the toll booth. Here they will ask you some questions. Just so you know what they are if you don’t speak Spanish, they are:
- How long are you leaving your car?
- What time are you coming back?
- Which terminal are you flying out of?
- What airline are you flying with?
- What is your name?
These questions help them know when you are arriving and they have your information for parking.
After they give you a magnetic number for your car and a paper receipt. You are supposed to put the receipt on your dashboard.
After you park, one of the iPark vans will come by and pick you up and drop you off at your terminal in the Cancun Airport. The trip takes about 5 minutes. This is a free service and a very smooth connection.
