I should have known that there's nothing new under the sun on DDF! I apologize for posting in the wrong place.  FWIW, I did search for Cabo...just didn't search the 279 or Hilton.  I'll know better next time.  :-[

And no, didn't book any flights, but that's only because SW isn't booking out that far yet!

I'm planning on booking a five night stay at the Sheraton hacienda los cabos on a spg nights and flights. My airfare is covered by southwest (companion pass).

My question is if anyone has an opinion where I should credit my miles ba, American or other (it'd be nice to go to Hawaii or Israel one of these days).

Also, can anyone opine if I should fly home thursday or Friday. I'd like to stay five nights but the flight would land about 4 hours before Shabbos and I'm not sure how quick customs will be.

Hi. We are looking into staying at the Intrawest Los Cabos (July) where they have suites. I read there is a Costco near there. Anybody with experience there? How does Los Cabos rank with Ixtapa?

Gonna be in the west coast the end of August, thinking of going to Los Cabos. Would love to hear from anyone about what activities there are to do ( especially stuff that is unique to Los Cabos). Are there corral reefs in the area? Seems like there are a lot of hotels at decent prices. Doesn't seem like the Hyatt takes points?

I just returned from a business trip to Cabo and loved it. Weather wasn't so bad, hotel was fantastic and the food was wonderful (Thanks Benny for the help!). If anyone needs any updated info etc let me know. Even though it was a work trip still managed to get some jet skiing in as well as a fishing trip.

My family and a bunch of other families will be staying in the westin resort in Cabo. Right now we have a confirmed minyan with daveners, lainers, and kosher food. I was wondering if any other families would like to attend so over shavuos night we could hear lots of drashas, divrei torah, and the more people the better. If you would like to come or have any questions pm me
