Flights to Caribbean/Latin America

AA is offering discounted flights to Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America. To get these sales, travelers must depart from Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

Why fly South? With so many great hotel deals in Mexico, now is the perfect time to pair it with a cheap flight to Cancun or Mexico City. Or, hit one of the Caribbean islands before they are inundated with travelers during the winter months.

The book-by date is Aug. 10 for travel through Nov. 5. The sale fares are good for travel Monday through Thursday.

Sample fares are each way and do not include taxes and fees.

Miami to Guatemala City from $79
Miami to Cancun from $79
Fort Lauderdale to San Jose, Costa Rica from $79
Miami to Aruba from $129

We tested the Miami to Cancun route in September and were able to find the sale fares. With taxes, a round-trip flight totals $254.
