Most flights coming in to Mexico end up in the International Airport where a bus usually waits for passengers to drive them to their respective Cancun hotel or resort. If not, you may ask a porter or just walk over to the bus stand right at the end of the front of the terminal.
If you decided to take a charter plane, the Charter Airport will be your stop point. Here, you can take advantage of the shuttle service right out the front exit/entrance of the airport.
