    My FI and I went the book your own route, I did alot of reaserch online and also talked to a bunch of travel agents who were getting me group rates close to 1900 taxes and everything and I was finding rates online for alot cheaper then that. I didn't feel I was getting anything extra from booking with a TA and getting a group rate. I found a deal online that was 1400 taxes and everything so I know the group rate was definetly not a good deal. My FI and I also didn't have the money to put down the deposits for everyone who would have had to be fully booked by August 1st and the invitations didn't even go out till July 1st. We also had guest flying from multiple different cities making it very difficult to get package deals for everyone. This way everyone has the option of finding their best deal

      just want to give my two cents. i was totally determined to do it myself because who else would have my interests in mind. i ended up going with a travel agent - i couldn't find any rates that came close to matching what she was able to find at azul beach. even my guests commented on what a great deal she got!

        OK Ladies, I kept telling you to wait till August for prices to drop but I could not wait any longer and booked my flights today. We are flying direct from Ottawa to Cancun for 1 week at $1244 per person (taxes all in ). We booked with West Jet for lower taxes and better times for flights. I was aimimg for under $1500 and I am happy with what I got. I booked it through Maritimes Travel. The closest rates I could find online were above $1300 with poor times of travel or flying through Toronto. My advice is to watch the rates online as they change every week. It seems that the sale travels through the country.

          Ontario gals - don't know if this has already been mentioned but ticketpilot is a great site to get good bargains. Kayak is great too (American based) - and you can sign up here and it will email you when the price drops.
