Just saw this on Travelzoo:

Starting at $479 per person, this deal from Vacation Express includes roundtrip airfare from the U.S. to Cancun; accommodations at a beachfront all-inclusive resort; unlimited meals and drinks, including alcohol; and air and hotel taxes.

Packages for 4 nights with 1-stop flights are available from:

Dallas; Fort Lauderdale; Houston ... $479
Baltimore; Boston; Las Vegas; Philadelphia ... $519-$599

Packages for 6 nights with nonstop flights are available from:

Chicago (O'Hare) ... $699
Atlanta; Charlotte; Cincinnati; Columbus; Indianapolis; Memphis; Nashville; New Orleans (7 nights); Newark; Pittsburgh ... $799
Buffalo ... $899
Depart: Select April-June dates; prime winter January-March dates are also available.

Resort details: Sandos Caracol Eco Resort has 10 restaurants, eight bars and kids club -- all alongside a lush jungle (perfect for peaceful walks to tropical lagoons and cenotes). The massive water park has 29 water slides, divided into three age-specific areas.

Book by Jan. 19.

I'll be going to Cancun, again, next month. Orbitz was the best deal I could find for both airlines and hotels. The packages on TravelZoo are great, but they rarely ever fit a working persons schedule. Yes I used the 15% code for the hotels and I purchased the airlines tickets first. This allowed me to stack my Orbitz bucks(if you make an account) with my 15% off coupon. Additionally there is a discover coupon for Expedia. It's 40$ off 400$ hotel 2+nights. Can be used twice, so go to two hotels or make two reservations to the same hotel. Also research the 20$ trick,I had success my many times.

INSPIRE, also buy the plane tickets first cause you will get an email that's like, " because you bought a plane ticket through orbit, you can save up to 50% on hotels at your destination." You can then additionally apply your 15% off coupon

I've been to Cancun several times and I can give you the following tips:

Stay away from Cancun.
Stay away from resorts.
Rent a car (probably from easyway)
For beach time stay in Puerto morales
Go inland on a road trip and stay at and visit cenotes around Valladolid.

Your trip will be far more fun.

I've used CheapCaribbean.com several times now, and the process has been flawless. It's easy to book, and they can handle everything: flights, transportation and resort.

My sister got robbed in Mexico. They sell more bullet proof vehicles in Mexico than any other country. Donald Trump said it best about ****hole countries. Personally I would stay away. Spend your money in Canada its way nicer.

My sister got robbed at home.

Experiencing another culture is a great way to broaden your horizons. There are sites that you will never see at home. Great snorkeling in Cozumel and Isla Mujeres. Chichen Itza is a couple hour drive away. There are also buses that go there. Xcaret is a great cultural park not too far away. There is a lot to do. Stick to the tourist areas. They are very dependent on tourist dollars and if you play it safe, you will have no bigger problems there than you would at home.
