The package price with Signature Vacations is about $1675 for 7 nights from Toronto.  If you buy you airfare from AirCanada directly ($600), then hotel from the Riu direct ($108 pp/pn = $756) and land transfer ($20) for a grand total of $1376.  Also, airfare is always going on sale and sometimes the hotel room rates drop closer to the date.  It's a little more work to book this way, but we do it all the time and always arrive safe and sound to the hotel and back home again. 

    I never thought of that. It is interesting because aren't the AI whole appeal that everything is included. You'd think it would be cheaper than paying everything separately. Guess not

      Well the only portion that is considered AI is the hotel.  The airfare and land transfers are done by separate companies.  It's up to the person booking if they want to take a package or look for deals on each component.  I've always found it cheaper to separate because airfare is always going on sale, and hotels often have discount room rates.  You wouldn't be able to get those deals if you buy a package (unless they actually factor in the discounts).
