Los Cabos
Beginning now and valid through 2009, over 20 world-class hotels and resorts in Los Cabos are offering visitors a $400 per room credit upon hotel check-out, virtually reimbursing guests the cost of one airline ticket. We recommend the Melia Hotel, situated on the only swimmable beach in Cabo, the more low-key Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, or the boutique elegance and haute cuisine of Casa Natalia in San Jose del Cabo.
