Budget travel from the US to Mexico

by risse73

-->From So. Cal/LA area to Mexico

It is quite possible to get cheap airfares from Southern California/LA area to Mexico via low-cost air carriers such as Viva Aerobus & Volaris. Check out their respective websites. I believe Viva Aerobus has flights from Tijuana to the rest of Mexico, and it looks like Volaris will have a new flight segment soon from LA directly to Guadalajara.

This is what you'll need to do:

1.) Take the bus, train or drive a car rental between LA and San Diego.
2.) From San Diego, go into the border to enter Tijuana.
3.) From the border, take a taxi to the airport.
4.) Viva Aerobus flies out of Tijuana Airport, then goes to its hub in Monterrey, Mexico.
5.) From Monterrey, Mexico take a connecting flight to Cancun (or other cities) via the same airline.


Take a look at flights from Volaris for an alternative option.


-->From the US to Mexico

Most people in the US visit Mexico via these states: California, Arizona or Texas.

When people visit Mexico, they mostly use their cars, and depend less on the bus. If you're a backpacker, then the bus will be a good way to "rough" up your trip, and it is obviously the cheapest mode of transportation. You may want to check bus options from California or Arizona, which I think are less than those offered by way of Texas.

In case you don't make it to California, there are several low-cost air carriers in the US that will allow you to travel to Cancun since this is a really popular destination. Check out these LCCs for more info on US-Mexico flights for a sampling of fares:

1.) JetBlue
2.) AirTran
3.) Spirit
4.) Frontier

Also, check those Mexican LCCs I mentioned above for more information on their destinations. I believe VivaAerobus flies out of Tijuana, Las Vegas, and McAllen, Texas, while Volaris flies out of some Californian cities and Las Vegas.

I'm afraid there aren't too many budget flight options other than the ones I told you, unless (of course) the major air carriers decide to have their sales or fare wars with the LCCs.

By the way, regular meta-search sites like Expedia, Travelocity, etc. do not typically publish the fares of low-cost air carriers.

Good Luck & Enjoy Your US-Mexico Adventure!

Booking Travel Online

by Electradrvr

Hello All,

Who's the best for Online Travel Booking? There seems to be tons of sites,,, list goes on and on.

Please post your experiences with booking travel online.

Thanks in Advance,

Re: Booking Travel Online

by ABL1958

I've had good luck with Expedia. A friend of mine is faithful to Travelocity and books all her many flights through them. CheapTickets is pretty popular, too, I hear.

I've also found that booking directly through an airline's website can give you good deals. We've often done better booking through, for instance, rather than through Expedia.

Air Search

by LolaSanFrancisco search 28 different air web sites at once, like Orbit, and Travelocity, listing the lowest price up. You can seach the whole web in 2 min!

Re: Booking Travel Online

by malinaberg

Ive used travelocity with success, and lately I found a very cheap ticket to Australia at Orbitz. However, they didnt accept foreign credit cards so I called the airline up and booked the same flight (same price) directly. (that ticket was not found when searched for on the airline's website)

Expedia does not accept foreign credit cards either, but travelocity does.

Also, at travelocity you can see different available dates, a great feature I havent found anywhere else.

Qixo sounds pretty darn good, Ill try it next time.

Re: Booking Travel Online

by nav_jewel

I believe in do-it-yourself, by using the online booking site I have bene using for last 5 years without a single complaint.

The site is owned by same parent company IAN who owns Expedia, and many more, is a Wrodl leader in online travel bookings - so I am in safe hands.

Re: Re: Booking Travel Online

OPODO, jointly run by several major airlines, is good and reliable.

Promotion codes for travel discounts

by greenthumb2000

Is anyone aware of a website that you can search for promotion codes that allow you to obtain a discount on booking hotels, airline tickets, or rental cars at places like Orbitz, Expedia, Travelocity, etc. Before completing any booking, they always ask if you have a "promotion code" in order to get a discount.
Thanks for your help.
Sincerely, paul

I am travelling to San Francisco in July for 3 weeks!!
We are going to hire a car and drive to LA, San Diego and Vegas with all the stops in between!!

We were looking on doing a side trip to Cabo, Mexico!!
We were wandering if this was possible and were would be the best place to fly from and best time to fit it in!!

Thank You!!

Re: Cabo

by YVRDave

Sans Diego and Francisco and LA have non stop flights. Weekends are very fun in Cabo

Re: Cabo

by travelgourmet

Seeing that San Diego is the closest city you mention to Cabo, I would fly out of San Diego for flight time and maybe even price. Your last stop might be the best to fly out of as to save money on the car rental drop off fee. Make sure your passports and visas to Cabo are in order.

Re: Cabo

by travelgourmet

BTW, you don't say where you are from and that may dictate if you do need a visa or not. Passport for sure and a round trip ticket needed.

Re: Cabo

by ViajesdelMundo

Most often, the best price is from LAX, not SAN;also, there are fewer non-stops to SAN. I believe weekdays would be less expensive, too. AND, I would first check say, TRAVELOCITY, and if ALASKA AIR shows a good flight, then go to ALASKA's own website and probably get a little better fare. Lately, the airlines own websites have cheaper fares for the same flights as you see on Travelocity, Expedia, etc.(I live in Baja Sur and am frequently checking these two airports.) But also remember, July is very humid!!!

Innovative pizzas with many different tastes

by spartan about California Pizza Kitchen

Hearth-baked pizzas Many options to choose from, but I would recommend the Original Chopped Salad (chopped lettuce, basil, salami, chilled roast turkey breast, diced tomatoes, chopped garbanzos and cheese tossed in a herb-mustard Parmesan vinaigrette topped with scallions), the Sweet & Spicy Italian Sausage Pizza (a combination of sweet italian sausage and grilled spicy Italian sausage with thier own tomato sauce, roasted red & yellow peppers, mild onions and mozzarella cheese) or the Jamaican Jerk Chicken Pizza (grilled jamaican jerk spiced chicken breast with spicy sweet caribbean sauce, mozzarella cheese, Nueske's applewood smoked bacon, mild onions, roasted red & yellow peppers and scallions). Wash it down with a nice cold brew like Sierra Nevada...OMG it is so good, full of body but no aftertaste.

This was another wonderful fun thing to do when we visited here. The Palm Springs Air Museum is a non-profit educational institution and home to one of the world’s largest collections of flyable WWII Airplanes. This museum has some of the finest examples of WWII flying aircraft, related artifacts, artwork and library sources.

All the aircraft are in flying condition also. So if you smell fuel & oil, that is why. They have two hangers filled with wonderful working display for children and adults to enjoy. So many wonderful exhibits and plenty of volunteers willing to show you around or answer any questions you have. Most of them are Veterans. They even have some future exhibit aircraft located outside, so wonder out there and enjoy the beautiful mountain range.

WWII is unparalleled in all of the history of the world in that it was the greatest, most costly conflict ever fought, taking the lives of more than 70 million people. My uncles from both sides and my Mom are/were all WWII Vets. My father was a Vet of Korea and Vietnam. So be sure to check this wonderful museum the next time you are in Palm Springs.
