Useful information about the flight from London to Cancun

Holiday in Cancún

Cancún has become one of the most popular destinations in the world for good reason. The beautiful weather and picturesque beaches attract a large number of tourists every year.

When is the best time to holiday in Cancún

In Cancún, tourists can expect warm temperatures all year round, but also high humidity. Despite the warmth, however, the months of November to April are best for a holiday. From May to October there is a risk of tropical storms hitting the region.

For those not just after a beach holiday, February is the time to go, which is when the Cancún carnival week takes place, marked by parades and festivities. Also exciting is the Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, which always takes place on 1 and 2 November and is a colourful folk festival.

British tourists can travel to Cancún without any problems and without a visa as a tourist, however, passports must be valid for six months. On arrival, tourists will receive a tourist card, which must be presented again on departure.

Tourists can expect much lower prices than in the UK. The cost of living in Mexico is 35 to 40 percent lower on average.
