Airfare to Cancun

Recommended Posts

Just venting and hoping airfare from Chicago to Cancun is going to go down eventually! When we sent our save the dates out in January... they were in the mid 350's which I thought was high, now its up to $500ish for non stops. Hoping that they will go down at some point in the summer (our wedding is November) did any of you other brides flying to cancun see the flights fluctuating a lot?

I am getting married November 12th. Some of my guests (including myself) booked in January for 380 non stop round trip from NY. Non stop is now over 600 round trip. Many of my guests have since only booked the room in the hope flights will go down during the summer.

Same here. We booked our trip from NJ (Newark) a few months ago for $350 non-stop. Now prices have skyrocketed. I'm just hoping they go down. I think guests are going to have to make a stop if they don't want to pay a huge amount for their ticket.

We are flying non-stop out of St. Louis on a charter flight and the cost is approx $300 pp RT. And the 11th person flies free so the price goes down from there. We were able to find commercial flights for a little less but they had layovers. We are traveling 10/1-10/8. I believe Jan is more 'prime' season, that is one of the reasons we opted for early fall travel...the resort prices were cheaper then, too. Good luck! Oh, I would HIGHLY suggest using a TA, they are a huge help in getting the best pricing and perks!

Usually, from my experience anyway, prices go up around summer time when every one starts booking summer holidays. It's always a gamble though...they could go back down or might even go higher, but I think next time they are in the $300's BOOK!!! That's a great price to CUN imo.

I wish I had your prices - in Calgary, Canada - direct flights to cancun are one, hard to come by and for some reason the most expensive. Flights alone start at $600 and go upwards to $1200.

Count your blessings........

I have been looking at travel prices from Chicago as well, and they are going up. Hopefully they'll come down once we get into summer, but while people are planning summer vacations and such it's usually high.

Depending on how many seats are left, it might just get higher sad.gif

they fluctuate allllll the time....just keep your eye out for a special! I religiously watch the prices, and as soon as something great pops up i notify the guests that i know are still not booked....on tuesdays apple vacations is the first website i visit. course, if you have a TA he/she is probably doing this for you already!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
