This is the best sale we've seen for nonstop travel to Mexico. One-way flights are only $39 for Mexican residents ($67 one-way for US residents) on nearly all nonstop Volaris routes. Roundtrip travel starts at $140 (for US residents) for travel on select dates in January 2019. There are even a few $39 one-way flights to El Salvador that are available to all travelers.
Volaris is a low-cost Mexican airline, which has a baggage policy that is similar to the major US airlines. The main difference is that the lowest clean base fare has a weight limit of 22 lbs total between your personal item and carry-on. If you think your carry-on bags look heavy enough to actually get weighed at the airport, you can purchase extra weight allowance for your carry-on bags starting at $24 each way. Checked bag fees start at $35 each way.
Travel is valid on select dates from January 1 through January 31, 2019. This is an advertised sale, but seats are selling out quickly and these prices may not last. Book now for a super cheap flight to Mexico or El Salvador.
The sale officially ends at 11:59 pm CT, on October 4, 2018.

All of these routes (and a few others) have $39-$44 one-way flights to Mexico on a few scattered dates in January. After adding in the non-resident fee, these prices go up to $67-$72 one-way. Return flights are priced slightly higher to get these roundtrip prices (including non-resident fee). You must be flexible with travel dates to get these prices.
Flights within Mexico are also on sale for $199 MXN pesos (~$10.50 USD) one-way, which could allow you to combine a few one-way flights and see a few different cities in Mexico at these ultra-low fares.
These roundtrip prices include the $28 USD (approximate) non-resident fee. Price will be about $28 less for Mexican passport holders or others exempt from this fee.
