    I'm looking to take a trip to Mexico in April with a group of friends. I've been researching vacation packages (airfare+hotel) on hotels.com and bookit.com. Are there any other sites out there that offer better prices, in your guys' experience?

    I found Kayak Deals (http://www.kayak.com/deals) and Kayak Vacations (http://www.kayak.com/vacations) to be two of the least frustrating.

    What I like about Kayak is that it has your enter your home airport and then gives your pricing which reflects the cost from your airport.

    This remarkably simple feature was something I did not find on sites like Travel Zoo, and this caused Travel Zoo to show deceptively low prices. For instance, it keep showing very inexpensive packages to the Caribbean; however, the pricing it was showing me was usually only valid from a specific airport like Ft Lauderdale. It was not until after clicking on the deal and entering all my trip details that it gave me the actual price from my home airport, and that was often several hundred dollars higher.
