Your transportation guy from Cancun Airport Transportation's staff we'll be where there is people waiting for arrivals, the person will be holding a sign with your name on so you have to look for your name, sometimes there is some crowd so try to be patient while you look for your name. One thing you can do is to go towards the side where the Margarita Ville is, it's an easy to find place and Cancun Airport Transportation's staff is almost always close to that part.
Once you find the person, they'll take you to your van which will be parked in one of the lines of the "waiting" parking lot. Please give them a minute because sometimes vans cannot stay really long in those areas, so sometimes the staff will call the van to come in for you, but the vans are actually just outside in a parking lot called the "launcher" (They launch the vans).
