Maybe your TA can look into something like that for you BUT i dont think you are being ripped off with the price you have now so take a deep breath and relax (and think of it as 1 thing checked off the list)
    This is what we did also, we were allowed one change in price so our TA let me know when the price dropped and didn't think it would get any cheaper and we re locked in at the new price.

      We are getting married February 25 2010 and we had to book and pay by today to save 750 for an EBB which was insane since we just picked our resort 8 days ago. It didnt leave much time for everyone to commit. My TA explained it like this. You might get a better deal down the road or the hotel/resort might be under a stopsell because its nearing full occupancy and then people get left behind. To me that was the clincher. I know that some people have to wait due to work/holiday financial issues but it saved us 3000 because we are paying for 5 people. Everything I have looked at in the mayan riviera with a direct flight was arround 1700 to 1900 for the 5 stars. I dont think your being ripped off at all. We booked for 2 weeks and paid 2460 plus taxes which I thought was a bit high but its our wedding and its only money right lol. Thirty years later I will still remember this trip and thats priceless. Happy planning.
