So why all the down votes? Is this a bad locale? Price seems fair.

I'm thinking that some people believe there to be a scam element to this deal - like great prices on days no one would imagine going.

@kingu: There's also the possibility of hidden fees. Deals like this always seem to have hundreds of dollars of hidden fees.

I didn't downvote it, because I don't know if it's good or not.

This probably has something to do with it:
Offer valid for stays from 9 April 2012 thru 30 April 2012 in All inclusive plan.

"Price per person, per night, based on double occupancy".... hehehe :) So multiply by atleast 2... who knows what other fine-print...

Travel Warning
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
Bureau of Consular Affairs

February 08, 2012

The Department of State has issued this Travel Warning to inform U.S. citizens about the security situation in Mexico. General information on the overall security situation is provided immediately below. ...

.. a violent struggle to control drug trafficking routes .... As a result, crime and violence are serious problems throughout the country and can occur anywhere. U.S. citizens have fallen victim to TCO activity, including homicide, gun battles, kidnapping, carjacking and highway robbery.

47,515 people were killed in narcotics-related violence in Mexico between December 1, 2006 and September 30, 2011, with 12,903 narcotics-related homicides in the first nine months of 2011 alone.

That being said the report says - "Cabo San Lucas: No advisory is in effect." YMMV

I'm going to say right now that I have no experience with this particular company, but many times when you're being offered a travel "deal" such as this one, it's really just an attempt to get you to buy time share properties. So be prepared to spend your trip being coerced to attend sales pitches, and then come home to endless telemarketing calls and brochures in the mail.

@akhoward: If they would just legalize weed a lot of these problems would go away and they could tax it, save money on court, jail & prosecution etc plus the sales of snacks would skyrocket!

@dislikeuce: That's pretty standard wording in the hotel/resort industry. The alternative standard wording, for a different type of pricing, is something along the line of "$99 per night per room, for up to four people."

@colbytitus: Yes, but just think of all the money that would be lost if marijuana was legalized. The penal system is a billion dollar business. LE would lose millions of dollars in funding from the federal government to battle the drug trade. And nobody wants that. ;)
