Flights to Cancun

Are you looking for cheap flights to Cancun? On the Beach offers huge savings on Cancun flights. Cancun is on the south east coast of Mexico, and is often referred to as the Mexican Caribbean. Flights to Cancun are popular with couples – it is a very popular honeymoon or romantic break destination – and groups of friends, thanks to the excellent nightlife.


Once a small fishing village, today Cancun is the main reason people visit Mexico. It is divided into two parts: the flashy tourist area, which is full of swanky hotels, fine restaurants and air conditioned shopping centres, and the downtown area, which is mainly inhabited by permanent residents and overflows with bustling street stalls, noisy vendors and people going about their business. It is the hotel zone which brings holidaymakers to Cancun in droves. On a strip of land shaped like a “7” called Isla Cancun, it’s a Caribbean paradise of soft white sand and turquoise waters. The standard of accommodation is exceptional, and there are bars, restaurants and clubs at every turn. There are also enough activities to keep you occupied for a whole year! It really is no wonder cheap flights to Cancun are so sought after – with all this and the fantastic Cancun weather, it’s easy to see why holidays in Cancun are so popular.


Cheap Cancun flights from the UK depart from all major airports, including Gatwick, Heathrow, Manchester, Bristol, Cardiff, Liverpool, Glasgow, Belfast and many more. Weather wise, the best time of year to book flights to Cancun is between February and April when the weather is hot and there is little rain. This is not necessarily the time to get the cheapest flights to Cancun, however, as it is the peak season and “Spring Break” time, so flights and accommodation is pricey. For low cost Cancun flights, between late April and May is a good time to look, as is between June and November. The weather is hot and humid, and hurricane season starts in autumn, but if perfect weather conditions aren’t the main factor for you, you can find some really cheap Cancun holiday deals around this time.
