Southwest Airlines is offering $250 round-trip flights to Cancun for late summer. It’s an excellent opportunity to enjoy the flawless hot waters of the Yucatan Peninsula.
This special offer is valid for flights from Texas, mainly leaving at Love Field Airport, which is the most crucial airport for Southwest Airlines, which currently owns around 95% market share of this airport.
You can find this offer directly on the Southwest website. These prices are available for late August, around the date of 16/17 of August, with the return on the 25th. In truth, these are not specific flight offers that need to fill some requirements, but random flight offers often pop up on their website.
Texans seem to appreciate a lot the Yucatan Peninsula, as two of the five main cities in the world that fly to Cancun are from Texas. The second busiest destination is Houston, and the fourth is Dallas. In addition, it is one of the southernmost states in the U.S. and is located on the geographic center of both the West and East coast, making it a quick and easy getaway to the gorgeous waters of Cancun and its surroundings.
This specific promotion comes as close to a 50% discount on the price. So, for example, a round-trip flight with Southwest from Dallas to Cancun drifts around $350-400. Of course, Southwest is one of the many companies that fly to Cancun. However, being one of the most important airlines in the south, this discount may be an excellent chance to fly abroad during late summer, which can be pretty hot in a city relatively away from the ocean.
Southwest currently operates non-stop flights to Cancun from 17 major airports in 16 major cities (Chicago operates in two different airports – Midway and O’Hare). Unfortunately, Dallas Love Field doesn’t have direct flights, so this promotion has a short layover at Houston Hobby Airport. This offer is for you if you’re in for a quick stopover for a low price. There are many options to fly to the beautiful Yucatan Peninsula, from wherever you wish in the U.S.
Tourism in Cancun is returning to its pre-pandemic levels and is now one of the top destinations for Americans this summer. It seems that this summer season will be outstanding for the city, which relies heavily on tourism revenue, as many Americans are starting to choose Cancun even more. As a result, the pandemic restrictions are totally lifted, and it seems that mandates won’t come back, as well as testing and masks, indoors and outdoors, from anyone entering Cancun.
It’s vital to notice that many airline companies fly to Cancun. Currently, nine major airlines are making the route from the U.S. to Cancun. From budget to top airlines, all of them offer an excellent service and can provide you with the best vacations in a world-renowned destination.
Some advisories should be noted, as Quintana Roo is experiencing an uptick in violence cases. Most of them are rivalries between gangs controlling the area’s drug distribution, but some innocent U.S. tourists can be victims of an unfortunate event.
This violence doesn’t mean it’s an unsafe place to visit. On the contrary, it’s a very safe vacation destination, as crimes are not directed towards tourists, as in major cities like Las Vegas or European cities like Barcelona and Paris. Indeed, according to a new report, Cancun has been named a safer destination than Vegas and Paris.
