Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.

Following last year’s devastating hurricane, Cabo has dropped a bit in the popularity rankings when it comes to Mexican vacation destinations, but the region is very much back in business, and airlines keep dropping fares in an effort to fill their flights. Via The Flight Deal, this latest sale, available via American Airlines (and US Airways) and United, will get you to the beach from a handful of cities for less than 300 bucks.

The best deal appears to be on American Airlines from Newark (EWR) to Los Cabos International (SJD), at $276 with a short connection in Dallas. You can also fly non-stop from Newark (EWR) to Los Cabos International (SJD) for $296 on select dates in May and June. American also has cheap fares from the West Coast on sale, such as San Francisco (SFO) with a connection in Los Angeles for $278 or a non-stop flight from LAX for $290. You can fly from a handful of other cities, such as Boston (BOS) or Seattle (SEA) for about $380, so be sure to check for flights from a more convenient airport before booking.
