The Best DC Airports

Before you call airlines looking for flights from Washington, DC, you should check with Orbitz.com. The two major airports in DC are Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Alaska Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines handle domestic flights from Ronald Reagan, while Virgin America, ExpressJet Airlines, and Colgan Air operate out of Washington Dulles. Ronald Reagan is only three miles from the downtown area, and Washington Dulles is 26 miles from downtown.

Long-Term Parking Options

The five parking lots at Ronald Reagan offer daily and hourly parking rates, and the airport charges $20 per day for parking in the long-term lots. The economy lot only charges $12 per day, but this lot is open and uncovered. Washington Dulles has two long-term parking lots that charge $17 per day and one economy lot that charges $10 per day. For $30, you can use valet parking.

Public Transportation Choices

The Metrorail and Metrobus make at least one stop at each airport every day. The stops are clearly marked around the city, and you can find maps that help you find the correct line. Taxis are not as low cost as the public transportation options because the drivers charge a pickup fee, baggage fee, fee per mile, and a fee for any time that the driver must wait.

Places to Eat

Both airports offer a range of dining options. Washington Dulles is home to Dulles to Go, Five Guys, Subway, and Wendy's, while Ronald Reagan has Dunkin' Donuts, Euro Cafe, and Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Once you have something to eat, you can browse through the sales at some of the shops surrounding the restaurants. If you want to enjoy your vacation, use Orbitz.com to look for flights from Washington DC.

Cancun International Airport

Cancun International Airport is the second busiest airport in Mexico, so finding cheap flights to Cancun can take some time. Orbitz.com can assist you with finding the best deals available when you are planning your trip. Cancun International Airport is located at kilometer 22 of the Cancun-Cheturnal highway, approximately 25 minutes from downtown. Over 60 airlines fly into its three terminals, including American Airlines, AeroMexico, Iberia, Delta and United Airlines, so finding good deals on an air ticket should be possible.

Transportation from the Airport

Buses are the most popular form of transportation from the airport to your hotel or downtown. The fare is $4.00 per adult passenger, and the trip is approximately 35 minutes long. Shuttles and cars are available, but all ground transportation should be prearranged as taxis are not allowed at the airport. Orbitz.com will be able to assist you with your ground transportation needs.

Weather in Cancun

The best time to travel to Cancun is from November to February when temperatures are in the mid 80s and humidity is low. August to September is hurricane season, so traveling to Cancun should be avoided during those months.

Attractions and Activities in Cancun

No trip to Cancun would be complete without spending some time on one of Cancun's famous white sandy beaches. History buffs would enjoy a day trip to see the ancient Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Orbiz.com can arrange packages that include swimming with dolphins and ziplining in the jungle for adventure enthusiasts. Whatever your interests may be, Orbitz.com can assist you when you need cheap flights to Cancun.
