Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found a $224 round-trip flight between Miami and San Juan for travel in early December (American). A three-night stay at the hotel costs about $356 per person, including taxes. Booking independently, you would expect to pay about $580. This package is $424 per person all taxes included—a savings of $156.

More: Add nights from $78 per person.
