Flights From the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and by train Mexico.
Mexico (Spanish: México), the United Mexican States (Spanish: Estados Unidos Mexicanos), is a country in North America, between the United States of America to the north, and Guatemala and Belize to the southeast. Its coastlines include the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.
Mexico is known for its cuisine, art, archaeology, pyramids, museums, haciendas, 9,600 km (6,000 miles) of shoreline, superb architecture, weather from snow mountains in the Sierras to rainy jungles in the Southeast and desert in the Northwest, many golf courses and excellent fishing. The once poor nation is one of the Pacific Pumas, seeing significant economic growth and improved infrastructure in the last few decades.
Flights From the United States and Canada
There are hundreds of daily flights linking Mexico to cities large and small throughout North America. This includes legacy carriers such as Air Canada, Aeromexico, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, and Delta, and discount airlines such as JetBlue, Spirit, WestJet, Virgin America and Southwest Airlines. Also to be considered is the Mexican discount carrier Volaris, which operates from several major US cities (including Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland, Orlando, San Diego and Portland) through their hubs in Mexico City and Guadalajara. The other carrier, Interjet also serve Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Antonio and Houston. In return, United Airlines/United Express (operated by Express Jet and Skywest) fly to additional cities in Mexico besides Guadalajara, Mexico City, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and other major beach resorts (which are already served by multiple US & Mexican carriers) such as to Aguascaliente, Chihuahua, Ciudad de Carmen, Durango, Huatulco, Leon/Guanajuato, Oaxaca, Merida, San Luis Potosi, Torreon, Tampico, Veracruz and Villahermosa from Houston. Flights to additional Mexican cities are operated by Aeromar on a code-share basis.
As in the United States and Canada, you will have to clear immigration and customs at your first Mexican port of entry, even though that airport may not be your final destination. (For example, many trips on Aeromexico will involve connecting through its Mexico City hub.) You will then have to re-check your bags and go through security again to proceed to your next flight segment.
From Australia or New Zealand
Fly from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne or Auckland (NZ) direct to Los Angeles on Delta, Qantas, United, and Virgin Australia. Air New Zealand offers one-stop air service from Australia and non-stop air service from Auckland to Los Angeles. Hawaiian Airlines and Air Tahiti Nui offer one- or two-stop air service to Los Angeles from Australia and New Zealand.
Many airlines continue from Los Angeles to Mexico including AeroMexico/Aeromexico Connect, Alaska Airlines, Volaris, Interjet, United and Virgin America, some of which have interline or alliance ticketing and baggage check through. More options are available if connecting through another USA city. Also, make sure to have a good look at visas beforehand – even just for transit you will need something for USA, and if you get a visa waiver, they treat Mexico as part of the USA, meaning if you stay longer than 90 days in Mexico, you will need to travel further south before returning to USA.
Most commercial airlines link Mexico directly from Europe. There are direct flights to Mexico City (MEX) and Cancun (CUN) from Paris (CDG), London (LON), Madrid (MAD), Amsterdam (AMS), Frankfurt (FRA IATA). Some carriers will serve both Mexico City and Cancun while other will only serve one and not the other (usually only to Cancun such as those from Russia and Italy). Additional flights to Cancun from Europe may only be available as charters and some may operate during the winter months (Dec-Feb) only. It is always worth to compare flight offers from air carriers and charter companies who can bring you to Mexico City or Cancun via many European hubs. The flight duration from those cities is always approximately 11 hours.
From the United States to Mexico the nearest Amtrak stations are in San Diego, Yuma, Del Rio and El Paso. The frequent Pacific Surfliner connects San Diego from San Luis Obispo via Los Angeles; while the Sunset Limited and Texas Eagle pass by Yuma, El Paso and Del Rio between Los Angeles and San Antonio. In San Antonio the Texas Eagle continues northwards towards Chicago while the Sunset Limited continues east to New Orleans. Amtrak trains do not cross the border into Mexico so passengers continue to the border by local public transportation or by taxi from the Amtrak station. There are no onward trains to the US/Mexican from anywhere within Mexico or to the other border with Mexico’s southern neighbors (Belize & Guatemala) or anywhere near in Chiapas, Quintana Roof and Yucatan states.
