    I'm just wondering if anybody has heard or experienced trouble with getting to Cabo in the Summer. We booked our wedding for July 22,2010 and our travel agent said that there is only 1 plane going to cabo from Calgary, AB. Now I'm really concerned that our guests won't be able to come. She also says we need to book right now.....but I don't think our guest can.... ahh.

      From Toronto, planes only go to Cabo on Mondays as far as I know..... kind of sucks .....

      What resort are you looking at?

        That is for the summer .... during other times of the year, I believe it's Saturdays.

        I haven't book anything yet but, I am looking at July 28th at Dreams....but we'd only be there for 2 days then.

            I experienced the same prob fom Edmonton. My wedding was originally booked for
            May 2010, but we had sooo much trouble with flights , we had to change it to March. Apparently it was very difficult to get a flight- I think it was with Sunquest, and it was only out of Calgary and super pricey!! Good luck with everything!!

            she may mean charter flight/packages because there are flights out of YYC to sjd almost everyday....but they are not charter...

            like united and usairways has decent flights in the $603 per person range depending on travel dates.

              I had a travel agent tell me that she could bet her house that Sunquest will cancel their flights to Cabo for summer 2010, just liked they did this past summer. She said it was a nightmare dealing with it all!!!!

                Was that not because of the whole swine flu?

                  I was part of that whole nightmare last year and it was Conquest who cancelled their flights, not Sunquest! I had booked a vacation with Conquest to go to Punta Cana and our trip was cancelled without warning. Good news is that we got our money back in full.

                  As for flights going from Toronto, at this time they only do fly out on Mondays direct. My advice is to get your invites out as soon as possible. My wedding is next May and the week I am going is already sold out!! Or ask your travel agent to check how many seats are left for the week you are looking for before you book your wedding date.

                    Sunquest did it in July because of swine flu ...and apparently some other reasons according to the TA I have spoke with. It was after the whole Conquest thing happened. I have no idea .... I am just scared to book! But also scared that if I don't, Dreams will be booked!
