5 Cancun Vacation Tips That Will Surprise You

3. Finding Affordable Flights

It is generally pretty affordable to fly within Mexico. You’ll save money by avoiding Aeromexico, but as this largest carrier in the country has the most flights available, it’s necessary to begin the search for alternate tickets well in advance of your travel dates.

Mexico’s smaller carriers – Interjet, Volaris, and Vivaaerobus – all go to Cancun for less money, but because they are small you may have to book with them directly rather than through a booking website.

Vivaaerobus usually offers the cheapest fares, but their services are a la carte. That means you have to be careful to meet their strict requirements for carry-on luggage if you want to avoid a checked baggage fee and may have to pay extra to board in one of the first groups.
