Affordable flights to Cancun

Vibrant Cancun

Catch a cheap flight to Cancun in Mexico and help us get the party started in one of the world’s most exciting hotspots!

Cancun was designed with beach life in mind, and with good reason. These are some pretty special beaches. The glittering Caribbean Sea and mile upon mile of pristine white sand make Cancun the ultimate destination to relax by day, and to party by night.

Cancun might boast all the comforts of a modern Mexican beach holiday, but it’s also surrounded by history. And if the mystery of the Mayan ruins doesn’t tempt you from your sun-bed, the diving, golf and high-end shopping just might.

Cancun’s finest

Sample the nightlife

Mayan ruins

If you're interested in archeology, the Yucatan Peninsula is within travelling distance.  Perfect to explore palaces, pyramids and numerous other historical sites.

Meet a dolphin

The memory of hands-on experiences with sharks, sting rays and dolphins will last much longer than your tan. You can swim, pat, or (if the mood takes you) smooch with a lovable dolphin in Cancun.

Make a splash

For total escapism, hike or swim in complete silence through Rio Secreto’s incredible underground river system. Don’t forget to marvel at the huge stalactites and stalagmites along the way.

Be taken for a ride

Looking for more family activities in Cancun? Horse riding is always popular with the kids. Follow a gentle trail as it winds through the jungle and ends up at the beautiful shoreline.
