One of the great things about this award availability is that it’s not limited to large hub airports like Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) or Miami International Airport (MIA), but it’s also available from smaller airports like Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) in North Carolina and John Glenn International Airport (CMH) in Columbus, Ohio.

Bottom Line:

You can fly to Cancun this winter for as few as 8,000 American Airlines miles one-way in economy or 20,000 miles one-way in business class from multiple U.S. Cities.

Need More American Airlines Miles?

American Airlines miles can be hard to come by since you can’t transfer from any of the major programs. American’s only transfer partners are Marriott Bonvoy (3:1 ratio) and Bilt Rewards (1:1 ratio).

So, if you need more American Airlines miles, the best thing to do is use an American Airlines co-branded credit card.

You can also earn lots of American Airlines miles through the AAdvantage eShopping portal.

Hot Tip:

There are numerous hotel options in Cancun to fit any budget. Check out these boutique hotels and family-friendly all-inclusive resorts, as well as these Cancun hotels you can book with points and miles.

Final Thoughts

Sometimes, the best deals are those that come with lots of availability from multiple destinations. This is one of those deals. You can fly to Cancun from many U.S. cities for just 8,000 American Airlines miles and $45.45 in taxes and fees in economy or 20,000 miles plus $45.45 in taxes and fees in business class. There is currently wide open availability from late December 2023 through early April 2024.
