United $305 rt LAX to BQN Aguadilla, Puerto Rico

One of the deals I found yesterday while checking out Kayak Explore is United Airlines $305 round trip from Los Angeles LAX to BQN Aguadilla, Puerto Rico on the west end of the island. There are about 20 low fare LAX departure dates in January and February at $155 one way and slightly more dates for BQN-LAX at $150 one way.

The lowest United fare to San Juan SJU is $389 round trip. American Airlines to San Juan is as low as $340 round trip with $358 more commonly available.

This is a fare I found yesterday through Kayak Explore. One of the advantages of kayak Explore is it shows ticket prices from searches during the previous two days. Normally I use Google Flights.

Google Flights Caribbean LAX Feb2-9

LAX-SJU San Juan, PR is $340 on Google Flights. Google Flights does not show BQN Aguadilla Airport until the map is magnified to the close-up view below.

The issue with Google Flights is the need to look at the Caribbean map in a close up mode to see fares for BQN Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.

A smaller airport shows up on Kayak Explore in a macro-view due to being a good fare deal someone found in the last 48 hours.

Kayak Explore allows me to make a broad search from LAX for Winter 2016 and the $305 BQN fare shows up on a North America size map.

This is the power of using Kayak Explore to locate low fares from any airport and then fine-tune a search using Google Flights to find other low fare dates.
