Last Updated

The Mexican Caribbean is a vacation hotspot for American travelers during the winter months when it’s much colder in many parts of the U.S.   

For this reason, it isn’t surprising that many airlines ramp up their availability of flights and offer additional seasonal nonstop routes during this time.   

American Airlines is one of them, offering new flights not only to Cancun but to Cozumel this winter too.

Best Time To Book Your Direct Flights To Cozumel Or Cancun 

If you want to be able to pick your seats and be sure that you can get a flight to Cancun or Cozumel this winter, it’s best to book early.   

While in some cases, last-minute savings can be found, you risk not getting a flight at all to these popular destinations.   

This is particularly the case for Cozumel because there is a limited amount of availability.

Why The Mexican Caribbean Is The Best Place For A Winter Vacation  

The average temperature during the winter months in both Cancun and Cozumel is around 83 degrees, so it’s no surprise that both destinations are popular during this time.   

But the fact that connectivity increases so much with both places during the winter contributes to making them great winter destinations too.   

This is why thousands of visitors flock to Cancun and Cozumel every winter.
