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.

Last month we found a deal for $276 to Cabo, and while that super-cheap fare is no longer available, there are still opportunities to take advantage of discounted flights to SJD. United has deals as low as $284 to Cabo from a variety of cities across the country. The best fares appear to be from Boston (BOS) and Baltimore (BWI) to Los Cabos International (SJD), with fares priced at $284 and $285, respectively, with a connection in Houston in each direction. You can also take a nonstop United flight from Denver (DEN) to Los Cabos for $325 on United.

American Airlines is also offering a deal, with a flight from Austin (AUS) to Los Cabos International (SJD) including a connection in Dallas (DFW) at $285. Deals may be available from a number of different airports, as well, so always check your local airport before booking.
