Is It Easy to Fly to Los Cabos?
Yes. And we highly recommend it!
Although there are several ways to get to Cabo, driving and boating are certainly the most adventurous. Boating will require some advanced mapping and an expert at the helm. And while driving the Baja is both beautiful and adventurous, flying to Cabo is the quickest, easiest, and most cost-efficient way to travel (a majority of the time). Cabo has direct flights to-and-from many different areas in the United States and is consistently adding more flights throughout the year.
Los Cabos has two airports: Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) and Cabo San Lucas Airport (CSL). SJD receives a majority of the arrivals. It is a commercial airport that has incoming and outgoing flights from Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, AeroMexico, InterJet, VivaAerobus, Volaris, and more. Furthermore, Cabo has direct flights coming from several areas in North America such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas, Seattle, Houston, Portland, Denver, Chicago, Baltimore, Vancouver, Toronto and more. For a comprehensive list of locations with direct flights to Los Cabos, click HERE. CSL accepts private jets and smaller aircrafts. If you are flying private and staying in one of our favorite San Lucas communities (Pedregal, Hacienda Beach Club & Residences, Cabo Del Sol, Quivira, or Diamante) we highly recommend you fly into CSL. Here, you will be able to beat the crowds and customs lines, providing you with a much smoother and more comfortable arrival in Cabo. As an added bonus, CSL is less than 20-minutes away from downtown San Lucas. If you are looking for a private jet or the best deal on a flight, take a look at our Transportation Page, where we have secured preferred rates with our partner travel providers.
When flying to Cabo, there are some things you should remember to do and bring. First, with the recent COVID-19 pandemic, a mask or other face covering (must cover face and nose). This must be worn at all times while in an aircraft as well as either of the Los Cabos’ airports. Upon arriving in Los Cabos, you will be required to fill out a questionnaire stating where you have been over the last month. Aside from your mask, the number one thing everyone needs to remember to bring is your PASSPORT! If you’ve already landed in Cabo, you most likely have already nailed this step. While on-board your flight to Cabo, you will be handed a piece of paper to fill out called an FMM. This form is to note when you entered Cabo. Hang on to this form!! It is required to board your returning flight back home. If you lose this form during your vacation, you can purchase another one for about $30 inside the CSL airport before you go through TSA – give yourself plenty of time before your flight to acquire this document as this can be a bit of a process. In the event you would like to stay in Mexico for an extended period, this FMM grants you tourist access for 180-days.
With Cabo being one of the only tourist destinations open and accepting guests during the COVID-19 pandemic, flights are continuing to increase in both quantity and frequency.
