United / American / Delta / Alaska – $255: San Francisco / Los Angeles – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A good sale to Cabo. Everyone is putting Cabo on sale and is getting back to normal after Hurricane Odile.

ITA might price this at $298 — when you select those dates and book on Orbitz, it will price lower.

    Pricing it out of San Jose (SJC) instead of San Francisco on Alaska comes out cheaper! I’m pricing it at $224 total for the roundtrip.
