About The Author


  1. Hello-I am traveling with my service dog later this month, and will not be bringing a carrier as she flies in the cabin with me. Am I able to utilize your services? I will be arriving in January 22nd in Cancun and traveling to Tulum. Thank you!

    • Hello Cassidy

      If you click the link and talk directly to this recommended transport company, they can answer your question based on size of dog and more info.

    • Hi cassidy, I am doing the same next month. Please post what information you found. I am also curiours about accessing the Cancun terminal with my service dog without a carrier

    • We mentioned it to them that it would be good to by one to have for customers but we are not sure if they have gotten it yet. It would be best to chat with them after you click the link to talk to them and see if they have one for you.

  2. I am glad I found your transportation article because I travel with my dog all the time and it is hard to find cabs or transportation that allows dogs. I guess Mexico is pretty dog friendly? My rental allows dogs so that is nice. How are restaurants?

    • Hello Brian

      Mexico is two worlds when it comes to pet privileges. Many love pets and treat them like family and others do not care for them that well. Most restaurants do not allow dogs inside due to health restriction. Outside is fine at most places that have tables outside. We are glad you found our article as well and hope you have a good vacation.

  3. Even if your dog is a service dog you should bring a pet carrier with you as most taxis wont take a dog w/o a pet carrier if you plan on taking your dog with you anywhere. They are much more expensive to buy in Mexico for some reason

    • We did ask the transportation company to see if they could buy one to have on demand. You could ask your question directly to them and see what they say. When you click the link you go to their page and there is a message section.

  4. We will need transportation from Cancun to Merida,if that possible? We have two cats. Will be arriving in March 2019.
    Thank you for any help in advance.

    • Hello Michael and Eliana

      Thank you for your comment on our article. You will however need to contact the transportation company directly to ask them about your request. You can do so by clicking the link and then using the chat function or email on their site. We wish you the best.

  5. Just wanted to say I really had good care with my dog at the airport. It was nice to have such a good driver and care of me. I was concerned arriving in Mexico, but that soon melted away.

  6. So….emotional support animals that fly in the cabin from the US….must be in a carrier at CUN? For a December 2020 trip.

    • Hello Debbie

      This is a good question. You might want to email this transportation company to check what their requirements are for emotional support animals.

  7. I was thinking about moving to Playa De Carmen. I would be traveling from SF. What if your dog is to be for a carrier. I can’t pick up my dog as it is. She’s a 6 year old boxer.

    • Drivers can help load your things including dog. Check with this company because they might have a carrier upon arrival for the time in the van, that is if you are not traveling with one. It will be important to put in the comments that you are traveling with a dog so they are prepared.

  8. Hey I am currently in the UK looking to fly to Mexico with my cat, as soon as possible. I am aiming to get to playa del carmen via cancun airport but have been told this is not possible and that I can only travel as far as Mexico city. If anyone has any info or updates would be much appreciated! thank you so much. Dave

  9. I recommend this service. I hired them to pick me up with my dog to go to Tulum. It was spacious and very accommodating. I will be sure to sue them again.
