Our First Trip to Mexico--Really! (Cabo, Cancun, & Playa del Carmen)

I know, it's kinda weird that SoCal travel agents would have never been to Mexico, but there you have it!  We also haven't booked Mexico either, so we're a little in the dark.We took advantage of Sandos's offer to North American travel agents that if we would stay 3 nights at each of their 4 all-inclusive properties (3 on the east coast, 1 on the west coast) they would comp all 12 nights.  So we'll soon be seeing what they have to offer. Right now I'm looking at transfers (as we will obviously need a number of them!).  I normally use Viator/ARC Marketplace, but someone on the forum recommended Bedsonline, and their prices seem muchand $139 with Travel Bound!  Even if Travel Bound's is private (as it's up to 3 people), Bedsonline's private transfer cost is only $77.56.  There's the motto that if a price seems too good to be true...  So are any of you familiar specifically with Bedsonline's transfers? Also, because of a airline flight change, we'll be getting into Cabo at about 10:00…See More
