Long-term parking at Cancun Airport with iPark

At lot of people ask us about long term parking at Cancun Airport. There is both parking at the terminal and also this option offsite at iPark. iPark is a company that has come up with a solution to those that need to leave their car while away from Cancun. So how does it work and is this the best option for you?

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.

      Hello Yvonne

      That probably is not a problem because the vans are usually not full driving to the airport since they go frequent and, knowing how accommodating people are here, probably will say how cute your dog is and then drive you to the airport. But to be sure, it would be best to contact them.

  2. Is there a fee for your shuttle to and from the airport?

  3. Excellent! We’re looking at leaving our vehicle for 2 weeks. Are all vehicles fully secured?

    • Mr.Yucatan // June 28, 2017 at 3:56 PM // Reply

      We feel that the parking lot is secure. There are cameras and security gates to get in. We have never heard of any problems there.

  4. Thanks for your input on that, it’s very helpful.

      Yes, we park there and feel very good. And we have no vested interest in this business, so it is not like we are promoting them, they are just the one place to do long term parking.

  5. Do you know what hours the toll booth stays open? We are arriving on a late flight (same flight last week was 2 hours late…arriving at CUN at about 1:00 a.m.)
    Thanks so much for this article and helpful information!

      They are open 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. We updated this in the article. They also look to have increased the price to 140 pesos a day.

  6. Where do you find the ipark shuttle at the terminal when you return?

      Hello Debbie

      The vans go past the exits of the terminals at Cancun Airport. They are fairly frequent. You can take the phone number to call just incase you do not see them. But it is fairly easy to spot them. There is no marked spot but near the exit.
