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.

Cancun, baby! Who’s up for a trip to the land of beaches and drinks with little umbrellas in them? We’ve managed to dig up some fantastic fares from cities around the US — and while you’ll save an extra 20 or 30 bucks by connecting, we opted for nonstop flights to help maximize your time on the beach. As is typical (for whatever reason), you’ll find the cheapest fares from Philadelphia (PHL), with nonstop options on US Airways running just $264 round-trip, including taxes. Miami also has some attractive fares ($270), as do New York ($317) and Chicago ($328) for travel this summer and beyond.
