What time of day is cheapest to fly to Cancun?

Flights in the evening are typically the cheapest time of the day to fly to Cancun. Flights in the morning are usually the most expensive.

Once a small, unremarkable fishing village, the resort of Cancun is today the reason most people visit Mexico. It is made up of two parts: the glitzy hotel zone dedicated to tourism, and the downtown area inhabited by the permanent residents. A different atmosphere prevails in each, with a dramatic contrast between the air-conditioned shopping malls, chic restaurant dining, and wealthy pleasure-seeking tourists in one; and bustling market street stalls, noisy vendors, and the daily grind of people at work in the other.

The hotel zone, situated on a thin strip of land (Isla Cancun) in the shape of a figure “7”, is what people imagine when they talk about Cancun. It is a vision of Caribbean paradise with soft white sand beaches and clear blue-green waters. There is plenty of high quality accommodation available, a wide choice of restaurants and shops, a notoriously energetic nightlife, and an array of activities, including both land and water sports. The city is also a good base from which to explore some of the nearby attractions, particularly the ancient Mayan site of Chichen Itza on the mainland, which is the best restored and most famous of the archaeological sites on the Yucatán Peninsula.

When is the best time to fly to Cancun?

Peak season:

The best time to take a flight to Cancun is between February and April when the weather is warm and sunny and there is little rain. However, this is also the high travel season and when many university students take their Spring Break so flights and accommodation can be pricey.

Off season:

Late April and May are good times to snap up a cheap flight to Cancun. Temperatures are in the upper 20s and Cancun gets humid, but the breezes off the Caribbean should keep it manageable. Between June and November the weather in Cancun is hot and humid; it’s hurricane season too. But, if you’re willing to take your chances with the weather this is also the best time to find cheap flights to Cancun and discounted resort rates.

Getting around Cancun

It’s easy to walk around Cancun. Be aware that taxi prices are supposed to be set by zone. The reality is that locals pay far less than tourists, and guests at expensive hotels are always charged more. One popular way to get around the city is by bus. To get from the mainland to the beaches along Avenida Tulum you can take route 1 and 2. Route 8 buses are for Puerto Juarez/Punta Sam, where you can catch a ferry to Isla Mujeres. Pick up a route 8 bus on the east side of Avenida Tulum. They run between 6am and midnight every day. Watch out for private buses that go the same places, but charge a higher fee. For a little more adventure, you can rent a moped for around $30 each day, but be safe and wear your helmet.
