Trip Introduction: Whale Sharks, Tacos and Baja California, Mexico via Alaska Airlines First Class

The winter came and before we knew it, the year end was among us. MrsWT73 had two Alaska MVP Gold Upgrade certificates that were expiring on December 31 that she had earned with her Alaska MVP Gold status for 2018. With the bad rainy Pacific Northwest weather on top of us, the question was, where do we use them?

After several trips to Hawaii, MrsWT73 was keen to try something different. After a failed attempt to drive from Vancouver to Cabo San Lucas (while in my twenties), Cabo San Lucas seemed like an appealing destination that we hadn’t been to. We settled on Cabo San Lucas in the Baja California state. We used an Alaska 2 for 1 companion fare for the tickets, and used the upgrade vouchers for first class. As I learn more about the program, it seems I didn’t actually need to use the Guest upgrades, but rather have purchased a Gold Upgrade fare, but live and learn I guess. For the hotel, we settled on the new JW Marriott Los Cabos.

The trip routing ended up looking like this:


YVR-SEA-SDJ (Alaska 2 for 1 companion fare)
SJD-PDX-SEA-YVR (Alaska 2 for 1 companion fare)

I hope you’ll join us on a warm spring break adventure.
