Spirit Airlines is offering what seems to be the best airfare to celebrate Baktun 14 with the Maya themselves. Witness and learn about the famous calendar from the people as a new beginning awaits in the foretold golden age of humanity!
These quotes are leaving on December 11 and returning December 24 for Christmas. Rates are round-trip to Cancun and include tax. Bag fees are excessive for Spirit as a means to keep fares low. Make sure to pre-book your bag when buying your ticket online ($20US online vs $45USD at the gate!) And the bag weights are to 40 lbs not the standard 50 with a harsh $25-50 USD fee for overweight items.
