There are more flights between U.S. cities and the popular vacation destination of Cancun, Mexico than ever before, and the number keeps growing.   

Most major U.S. airlines and numerous smaller airlines offer nonstop flights to the city.   

Now, one of the low-cost airlines that already offers flights to the destination from multiple U.S. cities, Frontier Airlines, is adding a new nonstop Cancun flight from Chicago.

The Newest Flight From Chicago To Cancun 

The flight from Chicago to Cancun that Frontier is adding is from Chicago’s Midway International Airport.   

Flying out of this smaller airport gives travelers the advantage of dealing with smaller crowds, and Chicago Midway is closer to downtown Chicago.   

These nonstop flights are currently starting at $161 roundtrip and are being offered once a day from now until at least the end of February. 

@m3gtravels I recently flew from Dallas to Cancun on Frontier and had absolutely no complaints. It was easy, no issues, spacious seats. I will definitely use them again! #DFW #Cancun #frontierairlines #traveltiktok #makingmemories #m3gtravels #travellife ♬ Mission Impossible Theme (Movie Trailer Mix) – Dominik Hauser

Why Frontier Is Adding This New Flight Now 

Winter is one of the most popular times for Americans to visit sunny beach vacation destinations like Cancun.   

Considering how cold the Windy City gets, it makes perfect sense to give Chicagoans another option for escaping the cold.   

With winter just around the corner, now is the perfect time to add this flight to their schedule.

Why American Travelers Love Cancun In The Winter 

Cancun is known for its warm winter temperatures that still allow vacationers to enjoy the beaches and other outdoor activities.   

From November through the month of March, you can expect daytime temperatures to average around 82-84 degrees, and nighttime temperatures to rarely drop below about 67 degrees.   

Not only are the temperatures warm, but winter is also the dry season in Cancun.   

Additionally, the Caribbean Sea stays warm throughout the year, so the water is still warm enough for swimming, averaging around 80 degrees in December.

Top Winter Cancun Activities 

With the weather in Cancun being somewhat milder during the winter, and the minimal chance of rain, it makes it a great time to enjoy some other outdoor activities as well.   

While you’ll undoubtedly want to spend some time on the spectacular beaches, it’s also a fantastic time to tour some of the region’s Mayan ruins.   

Jungle tours are much more comfortable during the winter when the temperatures drop those few degrees too.   

Additionally, winter is the perfect time to enjoy one of the area’s adventure parks, because the weather in the wintertime is nearly perfect in Cancun.
