Special rates: Starting at $479 per person for four nights and airfare.

Best times to go: Fall and winter months, excluding Christmas.

Compared to other romantic getaways outside the U.S., Cancun is one of the few where travelers can find inexpensive airfares as well as low-cost accommodations.

"You can get there from many major U.S. cities on a nonstop flight at a very reasonable price," says Carl Howard, a consultant with All Points Travel in Atlanta.

A nonstop flight from Atlanta to Cancun runs from $300 to $350 on average, outside of spring break and Christmas.

Travelers have access to a wide range of hotel rooms and resorts, plus attractions such as the Mayan ruins. Many all-inclusive luxury resorts offer rates of $100 per day, says Kara Lucchesi, a senior travel expert out of Davis, Calif., for STA Travel based in Dallas.
