The fine print: Does not include taxes of about $46 per person. Based on double occupancy; single supplement is $565. The $737 starting rate is based on a May 17, 2010, departure; rates for other travel dates might be slightly higher. Read these guidelines before you book any Real Deal.

Book by: May 1.

Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $208 round-trip flight for travel between Miami and San Juan in mid-May (American). A three-night stay at the W costs about $693 per person. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $901, including all taxes. This package costs $783 per person including taxes—a savings of $118.

More: Add nights from $377 per room. You can reach Vieques from San Juan by taking a 25-minute commuter flight or ferry.
