Cheap Travel to Merida, Mexico?

Fares from Washington DC:

    Q. Help! I'm having mega trouble finding an affordable flight from tampa fl to Merida, Mexico in late March. It's over $400!. Are there any of those ticket consolidators I should be checking out?

    A. Flights to Merida can be pretty costly. You might have better (cheaper) luck flying into a busier airport such as Cancun, and taking a bus. You'll find buses run pretty regularly between Cancun and Merida, and will typically run you around $20 each way. We can't exactly vouch for the reliability or comfort of the bus, and it might be a bit of a hassle as far as travel time, but if you're looking for the cheapest way, this is most likely your best bet. You may find this TripAdvisor thread regarding bus companies and schedules to be helpful.
