TAR Airlines Expands Flights to Beach Destinations in Mexico

If you’re headed to Mexico and can’t decide whether you should spend your time soaking up the culture in one of its fascinating cities or lounging on the beaches of Huatulco or Puerto Escondido, your dilemma is over. Now you can do both thanks to new flights offered by discount airline TAR.

TAR Airlines has expanded its routes, which means it’s now even easier (and cheaper) to combine beach time with city time. For fans of Oaxaca’s string of Pacific coast beaches, there’s especially good news.

In addition to its existing direct flights between Querétaro and Huatulco (Oaxaca), TAR Airlines has launched direct flights from Querétaro to Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca (PXM) beginning June 18, 2018.

Why visit Querétaro? Vogue magazine recently proclaimed Querétaro, the “New San Miguel de Allende” due to  its atmospheric historic centre (a designated UNESCO World Heritage site), leafy plazas, colonial architecture and burgeoning arts scene. It also features beautiful natural landscapes, including protected forests home to monarch butterflies and the Sierra Gorda biosphere reserve, known for its hiking, swimming and rafting.

The flights from Querétaro to Puerto Escondido Oaxaca will be of interest to expats as well as locals looking for easy connections to beach destinations in Mexico.

Low Cost of a Flight on TAR Airlines – $60 USD (inc tax)

TAR Airlines Schedule: Flights between Querétaro-Puerto Escondido-Querétaro take place twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. This makes  TAR Airlines a great option for a 3-day getaway.

A recent online search shows a one-way cost of $1199 MXN ( or $60 USD) for a Promo category flight. Prices rise steeply for other flight categories.

Unlike VivaAerobus where a multitude of extras can increase the price if you’re not vigilant about deselecting them when making a reservation, on TAR Airlines the cost of $1199.01  includes all taxes, extras. It also includes the cost of a reserved seat. But it’s still worth keeping an eye on hidden expenses with these tips and tricks for Flying with a Discount Airline.

Departure Times: The flights from PXM to Querétaro depart around midnight (22:05), which isn’t the most  convenient for everyone. From Querétaro to Puerto Escondido, flights depart at 20:15.

Flying  Time: One hour and 26 Minutes

    TAR Airlines sounds like a great way to affordable get around Mexico. Thanks for sharing the information on it.

  • Charles McCool

    Seems like a great flight deal. Nice to know some insider information.

  • Betsy Wuebker | PassingThru

    I am always amazed at the low prices that can be found with regional carriers. It’s too bad the U.S. and Canadian markets are sewn up so tightly. Consumers deserve the aspects of a free market. This is an amazing value.

    What an incredible price! We wanted to drive from Huatulco to Oaxaca City but didn’t have the time. This would have made it doable!

  • Patti Morrow

    What a great deal! I’ve never been to Oaxaca City but I absolutely LOVE Hualulco! Next time I’ll get to visit both!

    With this new fantastic promotional fare, many tourists would flock to Mexico. Given the chance, I would like to fly and be jet lag free with my anti jet lag buddy, jetLAGFX www.jetlagfx.com/. What an enticing offer indeed.
