Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.

American and US Airways are offering more deals this week on flights to Cancun (CUN) from a number of different US cities. These discounted flights come on the heels of other cheap fares we’ve found to several different destinations across Mexico, including Cancun, Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta.

The cheapest fares we found are for flights from Newark (EWR) and Washington (DCA) to Cancun starting at $265 round-trip. We also found a similarly priced fare from Cleveland (CLE) for $266. In addition to these flights, there were deals from several other cities starting around $300. The deals appear to be available for travel dates as soon as today and as late as mid-October.
