One day I researched airfares from Seattle/Belize, and there was a round trip available for late April for around $450 US> Very cheap! A week later, I look up the same website, and it's $650 at cheapest fare. Anyone know why/if fares change so radically, or have any brillian ideas of how to research. I looked on orbitz and expedia; both yielded same results!

So far I've found Orbitz to be the most expensive. Editorial: Not a good sign considering it's owned by the major airlines.

Airfare quotes on the web do vary and I found that you need to search in certain ways or you'll not get the same fare twice wth just subtle differences in the criteria you used.

Some of the resorts in AC have Contracts with the airlines & can sometimes get you lower fares----worth checking out...

Johnboy speaks the truth. Since this is our first time to AC we had a travel agent set us up with a package through Continental. Airfare was extremely reasonable as was most of the rest of the package. It's worth checking out.

While planning my trip, I would check airfares several times a day on different websites. Fares are constantly fluctuating. Keep at it and be ready to grab it when the fares drop. I have found, contrary to what was just posted, that Orbitz sometimes has the best fares, but not always. is showing $550 for Seattle to Belize, but I don't believe their posted fares include any taxes. I am flying to BElize from Oklahoma City, but am meeting a friend who is flying from Seattle. At the time we finally made our reservations, going to Continental's site turned out to be the cheapest for her. I made my reservations through
Good luck.

I'm surprised someone found Orbitz so expensive. I got SFO - Belize flights for $365 return. I think you just have to got through all the sites (Orbitz, Expedia, Travelocity etc.) until you find the best deal,

Try the different places for continental and then get one of the coupon books credit unions and non-profits sell. If the fare is over $500 you get $100 off. This is good for two tickets. Our $550 tickets out of Portland became $450.

Hey Islandjunkie, have you tried They usually have some really good fares. I just used yesterday to get a flight to DFW (Hi rick/cheri), got a good price and it was a done deal in 10 minutes, so you might want to try them also.

Islandjunkie: We booked our tickets (although it was months ago) through $555 RT on Continental. Not bad considering we are flying on weekends both ways. It won't hurt to try. GOOD LUCK!
