We're Americans in Mexico and want to get to Cuba but don't have tickets. How does this work?

My girlfriend and I are currently in Puerto Vallarta but fly into Cancun (by way of Mexico City) Monday afternoon. We'd like to immediately fly to Cuba and were under the impression that we could simply buy tickets with cash once we arrived (due to something I saw online), however we're a bit apprehensive about not having confirmed tickets. We've tried calling different airlines but haven't been able to get a hold of anyone. So: Can I use my CC to buy the tickets, or is this asking for trouble? What about a Visa gift card sort of thing? If we wait until Monday at Cancun (or Mexico City) is it likely that we'll be able to get in? We have a friend here in Puerto Vallarta who could buy the tickets for us (I think) if we can't work anything else out. Would that work or does the CC have to be tied to one of the travelers somehow? Any guidance would be much appreciated.
