I've had great experience booking thru riu.com. I initially booked for the RPM Nov 29-Dec 13 and they were substantially higher than Funjet land only price. Got them to match that one. Then on Facebook the other day they said they had a reduced price, got them to change to that. Checked Funjet's price and it was higher than Riu's. You might find a cheaper rated from bookit, etc but then you have to arrange your transportation. For $18, both of us return, they provide transportation from CUN to the resort and back. Booked our air separately with CO from Calgary via Houston and we're saving over $1,500 from the tour operator that carries the RPM in Canada. Only difference is we have a one stop vs direct which for $1500 I can certainly tolerate. AND you don't pay for the resort until you check in. AND if there is another price reduction I just ask for it because otherwise I just cancel our existing accomodation and re-book but they'll match it.
