Washington Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) sits south of Washington, D.C. in Arlington, Virginia. Driving from Arlington takes about 12 minutes via George Washington Memorial Pkwy. Metro rail's Blue and Yellow lines also lead to DCA.
Typical flight times from DCA to Cancun International Airport (CUN) are three hours and 15 minutes. Driving to Cancun takes 20 minutes via Carr Tulum-Cancun/Mexico 307. Taxis are located outside terminals 2 and 3.
Cancun is home to sought-after beach resorts with lots of attractive amenities. Outside of your hotel, you can enjoy many exciting coastal adventures, like snorkeling to the Cancun Underwater Museum.
For thrill-seekers, theme park Xel-Ha Park is a 90-minute trip south of Cancun. Chichen Itza is a frequented Mayan ruins site, about two hours west of Cancun on Mexico 180D. El Rey Ruins are a closer and equally amazing option. It is also a good idea to take a ferry to Isla Mujeres for a peaceful day on the sparsely populated island.
Cancun's "Hotel Zone" is the most popular place to stay on the island and the most expensive. Those looking for more affordable accommodations should stay closer to the downtown area.
