If you’re planning to fly from Newark to San Jose del Cabo, the two American flights listed on Google Flights are some of the cheapest options.
For return flights, American offers one that departs from San Jose del Cabo at 11:37 a.m.
Keep in mind that the fares featured in these deals are for basic economy only, which comes with many restrictions. American’s basic economy allows passengers to bring one free carry-on and includes fees for seat selection. Travelers flying basic economy with American cannot make changes to their tickets or receive refunds.
Despite the restrictions that come with basic economy, you’ll still save a ton in airfare. The $315 sticker price for a round-trip flight to Los Cabos is considered to be low for basic economy, according to Google Flights.
