There are many vacation destinations that are perfect for a fall getaway, but Cancun is one of the most popular.   

It’s also one of the most affordable tropical destinations to visit in the coming months.   

In fact, Cancun is among the top destinations for an affordable vacation this fall, and with so much to offer, it’s no wonder it’s so popular among travelers from all over the world, especially American travelers.

Cancun – A Destination That Never Stops Growing In Popularity  

Cancun is a fairly new vacation destination.  It wasn’t until the 1980s that it really began to grow as a resort city after a study was done to determine if it was a suitable destination.   

Prior to that, there was a Maya population of about 100 people that inhabited the area until 1970.   

Fast forward to 2022 and more than 30 million travelers visited Cancun throughout the year.

How Affordable Is Cancun? 

In comparison to many other tropical destinations with similar amenities to offer, Cancun is definitely more on the affordable side.   

As with any vacation, you can make it more or less affordable based on what your expectations are.   

But for a mid-range 7-day Cancun vacation you can expect to pay anywhere from $1,800 to $3,100.

What You Can Expect To Pay For Cancun Flights This Fall 

Flight costs will obviously depend on where you’re flying to Cancun from, but a sampling of ticket prices from a few different U.S. cities will give you an idea as to what to expect.   

A roundtrip direct flight to Cancun from NYC for the dates of November 11-18 is currently only $285, and roundtrip airfare for the same dates from Chicago to Cancun is only $227.   

From Los Angeles that flight would cost $266, and from Orlando $191.

Cancun All-Inclusives During The Fall Months 

Part of what contributes to Cancun being a more affordable fall destination is the drop in rates for the ever-popular all-inclusives.   

Cancun is filled with fantastic all-inclusive resorts, and since fall is typically slower, the rates tend to go down a little.   

For a five-star all-inclusive for the same seven days, the 11th-18th of November, rates can be as high as over $900 a night, but you can find a five-star all-inclusive for as little as around $300 a night too.   

Hotels and hostels are even more affordable but many prefer the all-inclusive experience. Would you stay at Hilton’s newest All-Inclusive Resort in Cancun? #travel #allinclusives #allinclusiveresort #cancun #allinclusiveresorts ♬ Dance The Night (From Barbie The Album) – Dua Lipa

Affordable But Not Lacking In Quality 

While Cancun may be an affordable vacation destination, it certainly isn’t lacking in quality.   

High-end shopping, luxury all-inclusives, and endless and varied activities give travelers a little bit of everything.   

And the level of hospitality provided to visitors is top-notch.

Why Fall Is One Of The Best Times To Visit Cancun 

There are three reasons for fall being one of the best times to visit Cancun, one being the affordability compared to busy seasons like spring break.   

The second is that there are fewer crowds. And last but not least, the weather is perfect.

Things To Do In Cancun In The Fall 

Hitting the beach at least once is always a must when visiting Cancun at any time of the year, but the milder weather makes it the perfect time to explore other things too.   

Specifically, it is a great time to visit some of the Mayan ruins in the region because the heat isn’t so bad.   

You can also choose to do nothing but relax in your all-inclusive resort during your fall Cancun getaway, making it an even more affordable vacation.
