The deal
Whether you plan to ride the waves, play with friendly local bottlenose dolphins or simply soak up some rays on a sunswept beach, you’ll find all you need for a relaxing vacation on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. Try one of these affordable hotel and package deals for an infinitely tranquil Los Cabos getaway.

$553: Quick 3-night Los Cabos escape with flight
For an upscale and affordable escape this winter, consider a stay at the Villa La Estancia Los Cabos, an all-suite resort with pristine beachfront views, and amenities that include a 31,000-square-foot hacienda-style spa featuring a full-service beauty salon, 17 treatment rooms and state-of-the art fitness center. Starting at just $553, you can book a quick 3-night escape with flight included to this deluxe oceanfront resort this winter.

$400 air credit: Casa Dorada Los Cabos
Enjoy $400 off your total bill at the luxurious Casa Dorada with the resort’s new Fly Me to the Sun promotion. Situated on five acres of beachfront property, this chic oceanfront resort offers privacy with sweeping views of Cabo San Lucas bay and the iconic Land’s End Rock. Amenites at this romantic boutique resort include a spa, salon, three pools, a nearby golf course and several onsite restaurants. To take advantage of this special $400 air-credit promotion, a minimum four-night stay is required. Guests must also book by March 30, for travel between January 4 and April 4, 2009. Nightly rates start at $438 for a one-bedroom suite with a Jacuzzi.

The dollars
Based on double occupancy. Taxes and fees are additional.

The catch
Los Cabos is the perfect getaway for travelers on the West Coast, with airfare costing only around $250 per person round-trip from L.A. For those of us living on the East Cost, we found the price from New York more than doubles in mid-February.
