CheapCaribbean.com (tel. 800/915-2322; www.cheapcaribbean.com) is offering four nights with airfare at the all-inclusive Dreams Cancun Resort and Spa, from $729 per person.

Spend four nights in a deluxe oceanfront room at the Dreams Cancun Resort and Spa, where its location in Punta Cancun means you can enjoy views of the Caribbean on three sides. Rooms have private balconies, and the all-inclusive resort has five restaurants, five bars/lounges, and a nightclub. Swim with the dolphins in the on-site saltwater lagoon (add $159 per person). The deal also includes a credit of $200 per couple for extra perks, such as dining coupons redeemable for a private dinner on the beach for two (with a bottle of wine) or coupons toward spa treatments. The only real caveat? Expect it to be hot in Cancun -- June sees an average of 90 degrees.

Why is this a deal? If you booked this independently, the airfare starts at about $343 per person for a nonstop Miami-to-Cancun flight in early June. The price of a deluxe, oceanfront room comes to $1,208 for four nights, or $604 per person. If you booked this package separately, it would cost you $947 per person. Booking the package with CheapCaribbean.com saves you $218 per person. And if you factor in the $200-per-couple resort credit (or a $100 value per person), your savings will total $318 per person.
