You need to know your AA miles customer number first. Then you can book yourself, or you can give it to a TA to do it for you (however, if you are using the TA to do only your airfare, sometimes they charge you a fee if youre not booking anything else, so check first, but its easy to do on your own IMHO, so why not DIY anyway)
You must have all the points to get a ticket. It costs 35,000 per ticket for an international ticket to Cabo from the US. If you do not have 35,000 miles, you have two options:
1) buy more miles from AA (which can be pricey depending on what you need; in my case we were 8K short for two tickets, so we purchased them from AA for $250 including all the fees associated with it)
2) pay for your tickets, and then use your miles to get upgraded to first class

And it DEFINITELY depends on what time of year you're going - American offers reduced mileage on certain times or offers specials sporadically - just check on their site for more info, it is pretty detailed!
You can also use them to fly other airlines if American doesn't fly there - we flew to Peru biz class on Lan Peru (the kind of seats that fold into beds, my 1st time!) for 60k miles each, which is pretty good!
