      Mariaelm- You are so awesome with your research! Did you book your hotel and flight with expedia as well?

        Wow MariaElena- you are thorough! It's so wierd how prices can vary so much. When I was booking my trip, Expedia was more expensive than booking directly with the car companies themselves. I guess you just have to really do your research, then just jump on it when you find something cheap!

          Great post, thanks. I just went on Expedia website and for air for two RT it was 1050.00 and a midsize car was 136.00 for a week. Not bad. I wonder since Tammy does travel if she's able to get different rates for air and car rental

              Thanks, I AM kind of obsessive about research. I booked my flight thru Continental because I used miles. I usually check Expedia (and the like) first and then each company's website to compare. I booked my hotel thru our hotel block at Hilton, but we're still looking for a honeymoon hotel for the last 4 nights of our stay.

                Tammy, Book it on expedia or orbitz - they'll give you a bunch of places with good prices. We had a really good experience with Budget when we went. It was like $12 a day!


                oops! I just finihes reading everyone else's posts tell you the same thing!

                  Wow Sarah, great review! I really appreciate the info on the various activities. I never knew about the canopy tour - that sounds exhilirating! I think I'm going to post some of this info up on our wedding site for our guests to consider. I know we'll be doing it! Thanks again, great review.

                      Thanks Christa! Prices have gone up since I made that posting so lock in prices early if possible.
