Christmas Airfare

Hey all,

My 3rd Christmas in Mazatlan is fast approaching. Staying at The Inn at Mazatlan. Been watching the airfare and it consistently hovers around $775 per person from Seattle to Mazatlan for Christmas week.

What is the best time to buy Christmas airfare tickets?

I'd say for Christmas time thus is not so bad. We went one tear the day after Christmas and it was about $300 more per person than going in June.

I'd say waiting any longer would be a gamble. Even on Volaris out of Tijuana fares around that time are much higher.

There's never any guarantees but I would say buy now. Next week we will be in the last quarter of the year which is what Xmas falls in so time is getting near. Airfare is high these days anyhow.

Delta has $605 leaving on the 23rd. Alaska Air $419 leaving on the 21st or 24th.

You might want to think about buying now!

We sometimes wait and watch prices, but I wouldn't for Christmas. Also Hurricane Odile in Cabo is causing people to look at other locations, so Mazatlan could be busier this season. I know our October flights to Mazatlan went way up since Odile, and looks like not many seats left - really glad we bought the week before! It may still affect things for awhile.

I'm not discouraging anyone to stay away from Cabo though! It looks like Cabo is recovering quickly and will really need the tourists back!

The best airfares are at the time the airlines post their winter season flights.
