Hi,

I was wondering how easy it is to get return flights from BA to Mexico - ideally Cancun - as when I am away travelling my mates are booking a holiday to Cancun and I'm planning on joining them.

I've had a look at a few other threads and tried a few companies for prices, but it seems to be that it's going to cost me as much to fly from BA as it is for my friends travelling from Glasgow!

Anyone know any cheaper/easier ways of doing it?

Thanks in advance,

Jonny

Cancun eeeeuw are you sure??? I couldnt wait to get out of that hole when in Central America and get to South America ASAP.Seriously there are so many more beautiful places in South America than Cancun.
Flying is your only option and flights within Cental/South America are not cheap.
My advice is spend the extra time in South America.I was there from July 06-April 07 and didnt want to leave.

Sadly its not my choice of destination, and to be fair, the guys are travelling from Glasgow to Mexico to meet up for a week or so. I can understand your discomfort at the thought - just thought I'd ask. Would you recommend anywhere else in Mexico that I can advise to my mates?

Thanks!

Depends what your mates want to be honest.If they want to get hammered every night,make complete fools of themselves,live the party scene and sit on a packed beach then Cancun is perfect for them.
Too be honest you wont even feel your in Mexico.

I went to Playa Del Carmen which is just south of Cancun but even there is too touristy now and slowing becoming as bad as Cancun just on a smaller scale.From there you can go to Cozumel.

Even further south where i preferred was Tulum and it gives you a chance to see some Mayan ruins too.

This is more my idea of a beach http://www.locogringo.com/research/beaches/xcacel.html

That does look pretty awesome

The guys are set on Cancun though, but maybe I could persuade them to take a few trips out of the all-inclusive hotel and see a bit of culture, who knows!Regarless, it'll be good to see them after being away for 9 months.

Anyway, back to the original question any cheap flights you know of? end of Aug for a week?

cheers

Have a look at travel agencys in Buenos Aires,the may have specials for Cancun,
Airefair plus hotel all inclusiv for cheap.
could be cheaper then only a flight,if you dont like the hotel part you just use the flight to go to Cancun.You look for a one way ticket ?
so you dont have to take the return flight.
I had a look at the prices at different airelines,they are really expensiv,all of them more then $1000.
