Cheap Flights to Mexico

Every year more than 30 million foreign travelers reserve a flight to Mexico.  They come for the white sand beaches and turquoise waters, the towering ancient temples and the famously spicy food.  They stay for the warmth of the Mexican people, the ease of travel around the country and the strength of their currency against the Mexican peso

Best Time to Book a Flight to Mexico

Because Mexico is such a large country, the weather varies greatly depending on the region.  Generally speaking, the entire country tends to have little rain between December and April, while the wettest weather is usually between May and October.  Along the Mayan Riviera tropical rainstorms are often limited to the late afternoon and bring a welcome break from the heat, though there is a small risk of hurricanes along both coasts throughout the summer and early autumn.  Many travelers like to visit Mexico for the evocative Day of the Dead celebrations that take place on November 1st and 2nd, and the country's Easter celebrations are also worth a visit.

What to See and Do in Mexico

Mexico is exceptionally diverse and offers something for every type of traveler.  The country is famous for its all-inclusive resorts, which are located along the Pacific Coast (especially in Puerto Vallarta) and on the Yucatan Peninsula (including Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum).  The country also has a rich indigenous and colonial history, which can best be explored in cities like Mexico City, Guadalajara and Oaxaca.  If you're passionate about arts and culture, consider heading to the former mining towns of Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende or Taxco, which now attract artists and craftspeople from around the world. 

Tips and Advisories for Travel to Mexico

At press time, the Canadian government was advising against travel to Mexico's northernmost states, as well as parts of Guerrero, Michoacan and Jalisco, due to the threat of drug-related organized crime.  The only major resort included in this advisory is Acapulco, and authorities note that traveling by air (rather than by car) reduces much of the risk.  Women who are pregnant, or who may become pregnant in the near future, are also advised to speak to a doctor before traveling to Mexico, as the Zika virus is present in many regions of the country.
