Gateways: Miami; add $18 for Chicago; $30 for Boston; $42 for New York City; $134 for L.A.; $230 for San Francisco; additional gateways available.

The fine print: Does not include about $46 in airport taxes per person. Based on double occupancy; single supplement is $448. Kids 15 and under stay for free and only pay for airfare. Read these guidelines before you book any Real Deal.

Book by: No deadline; based on availability.

Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $561 round-trip flight for travel between Miami and Aguadilla in late February (Continental). A three-night stay at the resort costs about $390 per person. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $951 per person, including taxes. This package, including all taxes, is $663 per person—a savings of $288.

More: Add nights from $299 per room per night.
