Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points (on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year). Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Flights from various US cities to Belize have dropped as low as $254 round-trip — can you Belize it? Even better: there’s a lot of availability from mid-west cities that don’t see deals like this to Central America as often.

Puns aside, this is an awesome deal to take advantage of if you’re looking for a tropical getaway this fall. The availability for these low fares is pretty limited from September through early November, so you’ll have to start planning soon. However, you probably won’t want to plan too much as we’re pretty sure you’ll be just fine lying on the beach here.

You won’t be able to check a bag or pick a seat free of charge with these fares, but you are allowed a personal and carry-on bag on both airlines.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
