MIRAMAR, Fla., May 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Top-notch resorts, crystal blue waters and beautiful beaches are just a few of the things that put Cancun on the map as the ultimate getaway destination.

Spirit Airlines will begin nonstop service from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and Chicago O'Hare Airport (ORD) to Cancun International Airport (CUN) beginning on November 9, 2017.
