Flight deals to Cancun

Find flight deals and special offers on fares from Australia to Cancun in Mexico.

Updated

Fact checked

Cancun on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula is a well-known destination for tourists looking for beach resorts and sunshine. However, the area’s diverse offerings go beyond the natural beauty of white sand beaches and turquoise Caribbean waters. Lush green rainforests and Mayan ruins are begging to be explored. Or you can go wildlife-spotting, diving or simply enjoy the lively nightlife.

Flights to Cancun from Australia can be found with both American and Australian airlines. These flights transit via the US making it easy to create a multi-destination trip. Cancun is located in the Quintana Roo province of Mexico which borders Belize – so it’s also a good starting point for travellers visiting other parts of Central America.

Cancun insider flight tips

  • The months of February to April offer great weather and little rainfall in Cancun. This is a very popular time for American students on Spring Break – when partying and accommodation prices are at their peak. Late November to February are cooler months, but the region is quieter and you are more likely to find cheap flights to Cancun.
  • Get a window seat if you can as the views of the ocean and forest on descent to Cancun are stunning.
  • Low-cost carriers such as JetBlue fly direct to Cancun from various American cities.
  • As with most flights from Australia to the Americas, the quickest flights to Cancun are one-stop via Los Angeles International airport (LAX). Some involve a second stop at Atlanta, Houston or San Francisco. A terminal change at LAX may be required so make sure you’ve enough time between flights as it is a vast airport with several terminals. Queues to clear customs and baggage can also be long, especially with heightened security measures.

How to get from the airport

Cancun International Airport (CUN) is 22 kilometres southwest of the city. The best option is to arrange a transfer with your hotel as official taxis are not allowed to pick up at the airport. Reliable public bus services to Cancun and Playa del Carmen run every 15 minutes and take 20 minutes to the central bus terminal. Visitors can also arrange to share a shuttle bus with fellow passengers to central Cancun or Playa del Carmen. It’s best to book these online although you can arrange them on arrival.

Watch out for scams involving locals trying to entice you with dodgy timeshares. General advice is to ignore anyone who approaches you. This includes not letting anyone “help” with your luggage. Car rentals can be arranged at the airport or in advance and there is an information desk at terminal two. Buses and taxis are frequent and plentiful for getting around Cancun once you are there.
