    Ugh. Was about to book when I waited about an hour to think about it. Price was doubled by then (SFO–>CUN).

    Update: Got it for $190 from January 22-26. Not sure if these dates will work, but worst-case scenario is I’m out $190, I figure. Planning on staying in Tulum. Thanks!

    @Greg – awesome! onward to the next deal.

    Thank you! My 3rd deal snagged in a year with you (HK, Costa Rica, Mexico). I had been on the lookout for Cancun/Cozumel for September since April. It’s not the best time to go but given my work schedule, it is! I beat myself up about not having taken advantage of $316 from San Francisco earlier in the year. Yesterday morning, I was pricing out tickets again and scoffing at the $600 price. Then a few hours later, this.

    SFO to CUN, Sept 19-26 $209.

    Thank you!
