If you’ve decided to visit Yucatan in the next couple of days, you might be wondering when is the best time to purchase your flights to Merida. We have gathered the best options according to each season and airlines.

It has not been a secret that Yucatan is a touristic attraction in peak. Consequently, the International Airport Manuel Crescencio Rejon had a fabulous makeover. Several airlines land here every day such as American Airlines, United Airlines, Westjet, Aeromexico, Interjet, Volaris, VivaAerobus, and if you are flying inside the country, TAR Airlines and Aeromar have good deals too.

So, When is the best season to visit?

If you ask us, Merida is always a good idea no matter the season. But if we base on temperature and climate, starting December up to February are the lowest temperatures and scarce rains. Although from March to May the rain is minimum and full of sunny days.

Check out our blog YUCATAN WEATHER: THE BEST SEASON TO VISIT where we disclose the details on the changes in our city’s climate. So you can accurately pack your things for the trip.

Where/How to find the best flight bargains?

Now that you have decided which season suits you the most, you can begin your quest to catch the best flight deal. No matter if you’re not an expert, Skyscanner can be one of your best ally for catching the offers. Simply because there you can see the pricing fluctuation among the desired days and get notified when the deals get more interesting.

We have seen some of the best deals for North America by airlines before mentioned departing from Texas, New York, Florida and California. For Europe, Airlines like Aeromexico, KLM, Delta and Air France had shown great bargains too. All these during the months of February and March, September and October. Clearly, these are low seasons for tourism which is why you can find surprising bargains if you look it up with at least a few weeks in advance. Again, these won’t get in your way to enjoy all the activities and exciting attractions that the city has to offer, instead it will be less crowded and even cheaper.

If you are travelling with a budget and you are already in Cancun or anywhere around Yucatan, Campeche or Quintana Roo, you can take a bus for 25 dollars to Merida’s bus station, TAME. You can get your tickets directly on their website plus, you will be saving a lot of money on transport.
