Peak season:

The peak season typically sits somewhere between February to April. Here, the weather is hot but not unbearable and there is little rainfall. This is also an extremely popular time for students who take their Spring Break, so cheap flights to Cancun will be a little difficult to come by. You’ll notice accommodation increase their prices too. Spring Break in Cancun is incredibly popular and the place gets overrun with partying, celebrations and lots of drinking. There are some resorts which pop up specifically for students who come to celebrate, whereas other hotels refuse entry altogether to people celebrating Spring Break. If you do plan to visit between February and April, expect to love the constant partying or expect to hate it and feel like you should have booked your flights to Cancun at a different date. If you decide to visit but not to party, then every year on either the 20th of March or the 21st of March is the Spring Equinox at Chichen Itza. It should not be missed as thousands of people gather to witness the ‘serpent of Kukulcan’ engulf a side of the pyramid.


Off season:

Late November moving up to early February tends to be the quietest time to visit as the weather can be a lot cooler. That said, you can find the cheapest flights to Cancun and the weather does warm up towards the middle of January. May sees the start of the hurricane season with Cancun usually feeling the brunt of a few hurricanes, although usually they are not large or too damaging.

When is the best time to book a flight to Cancun?

You’ll tend to find the cheapest flights to Cancun around December and January, so aim to secure your flight tickets a few months earlier. Use this general rule for whenever you plan to travel, allowing at least 3 months between booking your flights to Cancun and when you want to visit to find better prices. Despite being the hurricane season, you’ll notice July and August are more expensive, purely because the weather is at its warmest. You should factor this in when looking for your flight tickets. Try to sit on the left-hand side of the plane if you can for the best chance of views. That said a lot of it comes down to the wind and which route the airline is taking, so either side could have stunning views of either the forest to the west or the hotel strip and the sea.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Cancun?

Which airlines operate flights to Cancun?

British Airways have the added bonus of complimentary snacks and drinks throughout their flights to Cancun which is a welcome addition. Whoever you ultimately decide to fly with, it’s definitely worth looking into any free loyalty reward schemes so you can earn a good amount of ‘points’ or air miles for journey, which you can then redeem against future flight tickets.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a train service from Cancun International airport. However, there is a reliable bus service which runs between the centre of Cancun and the airport throughout the day. You can also jump on a bus to Playa del Carmen too, so if you’re not staying in Cancun itself there’s a handy bus for a cheap price. Official taxis aren’t allowed to pick up passengers at the airport, so do not interact with any taxis as soon as you land in Cancun. There are authorized transportation services available which are permitted at the airport, but watch out for scams as you find your way. The best idea would be trying to get your hotel to provide a transfer for you to and from the airport.
