Southwest Airlines now offers direct flights to Cancun and the beautiful Mayan Riviera from Los Angeles! We fly back and forth on business to the US a lot, as well as all over Mexico to do research for our Expat Fever book series.
We can attest that it is almost always easier and cheaper to fly Southwest. We try to use them whenever we can (American Airlines and AeroMexico have both left us stranded in Ciudad Mexico TWICE!, never with Southwest!). The only other airline we use is Delta, because they have never left us stranded anywhere, although they are a bit pricier than Southwest.
Now if we could only get Southwest to offer a direct flight from Las Vegas, we would be in heaven! If you're planning a trip to Cancun, you can also get a $1,500 resort credit if you book through the Southwest Website.
