Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific coast of Mexico is known for its desert-meets-the-sea rugged beauty. Winter is an especially attractive time to visit, as it is prime whale-watching season. With these deals from Delta and Aeromexico, you can be up close and personal with the humpbacks and orcas in no time. Fares from New York are available for less than $300 round-trip.
