Thinking about a trip to Mexico this year? You might want to buy your ticket right now.
Aeromexico is selling discounted fares from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Antonio to several cities in Mexico for travel through Dec. 10, 2010. The sale ends Thursday, March 25, at midnight.
The fares are being advertised at $93 to $109, but that’s just one-way (even though a round-trip purchase is required) without taxes and fees. In reality, where airfare advertising seldom dwells, we’re talking about $300 to $320 round trip.
Not bad if you can make the dates work. Availability is quite limited and appears to be diminishing rapidly. (To make it even more fun, the Aeromexico Web site was quite balky last night.)
From New York, the sale covers flights to Acapulco, Leon, Culiacan, Mexico City, Merida, Monterrey, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos. I love Puerto Vallarta, which I think is one of the prettiest towns anywhere, but let me also recommend Mexico City, one of the great cities of the world in all its smoggy, gritty glory.
