I don't like refering to other auction sites while on LL, but since the community really is in search of great travel options,sometimes there's a dealon other sitesthat cannot be beat... and this is one of them. The El Tamarindo is on deal with Sky Auction.Normally, the Forest rooms alone go for about $600.00 per night with the ocean view rooms even much more. The tripSky Auction isoffering is per person, double occupancy including airfare ex Los Angeles, taxes etc.. for 7 nights in a Forest casita (this is the extended 2 night option) comes to close to retail at $5000.00but is going for under $2500.00!!!!!!! (I added up all the additional costs to come up with the under $2500.00 figure) And the travel window was quite large. I saw this last night... cannot remember when it expires, but I do see this deal on Sky Auction occasionally, and it really is a very good deal. And, when I looked at it yesterday, there were no bidders!!!!! Dang, if I weren't going to Mexico in two weeks and also again in February, I would have booked this immediately!
