Los Cabos is becoming a popular beach resort destination for a quick three-day holiday weekend. Despite only having three days, it is close enough to home for a quick trip.

From many destinations in the United States, Los Cabos is a quick flight from an international standpoint.

While it may take ten hours or more to touch down in Europe and Asia, Los Cabos is a quick flight under two and a half hours from Los Angeles and barely over two hours nonstop from Phoenix.

Meanwhile from Denver, it’s a hair over three hours and even from Chicago, it’s a four-and-a-half hour three-day-weekend hop.

On the other hand, travelers can affordably fly to Los Cabos for just a couple hundred dollars, nonstop.

In fact, the nonstop flight from Chicago mentioned above, leaving in a short two weeks from now, is priced under $700 dollars on American Airlines. It would be even cheaper with more advanced planning.

That’s a trip that many travelers can take more often than just one every couple of years without breaking the bank. It’s also cost-effective enough to fit in for a quick three-day weekend getaway.

If that doesn’t interest a traveler, there are many more things to do in Los Cabos, such as snorkel with tropical fish, take a boat ride out to Lands End or even venture out to a UNESCO heritage site that’s been called the aquarium of the world.
