The closest international airport is the Manuel Crescencio Rejón International Airport (MID), located right in town and a ten minute drive from our wedding venue. There are direct flights to MID from many major cities in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Once you arrive at MID, if you have not booked a rental car, you can take a taxi or Uber to Hacienda Santa Cruz or to any venue where you might opt to stay. For those who might prefer to fly into Cancun airport, this is located about 4.5 hours away and we recommend arranging a rental car.
We recommend booking your rental car in advance to get the best rates. Prices go up significantly when you book in person. We strongly recommend booking with either National or Enterprise; they share an office and in our experience the service was great. We have booked with Hertz as well, which was just fine, but for some reason it seems everyone books with them and the office is very busy. The rental car offices are located just across the street from the airport, easy peasy - no need to wait for shuttles if you can manage the walk with your luggage. We cannot provide a recommendation for booking with companies other than these ones.
Some of our guests may consider flying into Cancun Airport, rather than Merida - depending on where you'll be traveling from. We have done the drive from Cancun to Merida before (and will actually be flying into and out of this airport ourselves!). From Cancun Airport to Hacienda Santa Cruz, our wedding venue, its just about 3 hours 15 minutes. This is a straight, safe route through the verdant landscape of Yucatan with lots of amazing places to stop on the way, if you have the time for a more leisurely trip. We're not exactly sure what the toll charge is in 2024, but be sure to have some Mexican pesos for tolls along the way. A few points of interest, all of which are suitable for kids and adults: -Cenotés- These are gorgeous natural water pools formed in lime sinkholes that have filled from underwater springs. Prepare to be transported to a higher plane. One of the most unique and special experiences you absolutely cannot skip when you come to the Yucatan. There are soooo many on the way but three to check out are--Cenoté Oxman, Cenoté Xcanahaltun, and Cenoté Xkeken. -Chichen Itza- An amazing relic of the Mayan world - huge historic site complex with incredible pyramid, ancient ball court, and many other architectural sites. The lines to get in can be long, but if you're willing to pay a little more (we remember it being about $50 a person) pay to skip the line and get your own personal tour guide. Ours was amazing and so knowledgeable. -Valladolid- Gorgeous old city about halfway between Cancun and Mérida. You could easily spend the day here if that timing works with your trip, or stop for a pit stop, walk or meal. -Izamal- Another picturesque old city, painted almost entirely in golden yellow and white, one of Mexico's "pueblos magicos" (magic cities). Also could easily make a day of your trip here, or just a stop for lunch and short walk.
