UK to Cabo San Lucas

My son, who now lives in Canada, has decided to get married on the beach at Cabo San Lucas. It seems an easy ride from Canada, but a nightmare from England. I notice that most of the posters on here are Canadian or American, but are there any English people who have managed to make the trip without umpteen stop overs and massive start to finish 'flight' times.

It's possible to do London-SJD with one stopover in just under 18 hours each way (changing in Mexico City or Los Angeles). Use a booking engine to find various options. Here's an example in November:

BA LHR-MEX 1.05pm-6.45pm

Aeromexico MEX-SJD 10.00pm-11.20pm


American SJD-LAX 2.45pm-4.20pm

American LAX-LHR 6.35pm-1.15pm (next day)

Price around 1,500 USD

See my post about the nonstop out of JFK (New York City) flights...don't know the wedding dates...but my post shows the flight nonstop dates on Delta. Maybe you could make a great connection there?

Another thought would be to arrange a couple of days lay-over both directions, as that works really well for my Aussie friends............they book RT LAX and then RT LAX-SJD and have a couple days both ways to shop and relax.

You could also use American Airlines and bounce off Dallas, or the BA codeshare to Phoenix and then onto SJD. Or, if you want to take a day or so in getting there, take the BA flight to San Diego and then catch an Alaska Air flight down to SJD.

Another option would be fly direct to Vancouver,BC 8.5 hours layover then fly West Jet direct 4.5 hours.

The Calgary hub is another option with less air time.

Ok. Done the UK to Cabo (SJD) thing a lot over the years.

If you don't want a lengthy layover, you need to fly British Airways through Dallas (DFW).

Don't know when you're going but in November flights are around GBP800 all-in on Expedia.

You will leave London at a decent time and get to SJD at 20.30

It's a long day, but you do get there without stopping over.
