Quoting Mariner (Reply 6): This is considered "off-season" in Cancun - it is hotter than Hades. There are tourists there, but the hotels are a long way from full.
I work as a RM for a Mexican Hotel Chain that has four properties in Cancun and I can tell you this is not Off-season in Cancun. On contraire, our hotels are at 90% for all July and the first 15 days of August. Off-season in Cancun is September and October. Jetter2, enjoy Cancun!!!!!!!!! and by the way, great fare you got. Here in Mexico you just can´t get a flight to Cancun for less than $400 USD even on a schedule charter flight.

Quoting Dogfighter2111 (Reply 4): could get a flight departing MAN (UK) to CUN for $210 PP. And you are closer than us to CUN.
Dogfighter if you are finding fares that low I need to know about them! I have never seen a price of a flight MAN-CUN for that!!!! And I've worked i travel for 12 years! $210 is GBP105.00 or thereabouts. Thats the price of air tax alone!!!
Perhaps you'd like to elaborate on that?
Debate is what you put on de hook when you want to catch de fish.

I am on the mailing list for MLT and/or 11th Hour, and I periodically get emails with MG DFW-CUN R/T's as low as $79.00. When they get close to departure date and have significant space left, they dump big time to derive marginal revenue.
So the deal you got was not bad , by any means (esp. compared to AA), but it is not MG's hottest price.
And, by the way, in my experience, MG does a fine job. Just make sure that you have all your paperwork in order when you get to the airport at DFW. And don't pack anything too embarrassing in your bags, because all bags are hand-searched at CUN when you are returning.

The humidity is outrageous here. Usually above 60%. I'll take that ocean breeze with a cold one any day
I booked through a Travel agent that went through MLT. I can't wait for the 722!
Well I head you're best bet to book trips is around 6 weeks out. Its when the prices start to drop. I'd be scared to sit on my hands and hope that CCP has a 25% full flight so I could get a great deal lol.
I'm staying at the Gran Costa Real All Inclusive! I CAN'T WAIT! Just me and my 19 year old buddy going down there to party hardy =]
From what I've heard, its best just to take you're ATM card down with you and pull money then. But everyone around here I have talked to that went said take USD$.
