I was thinking about taking some trips via some specials I saw on Travel Zoo but wasn&#39;t familiar enough with them to know if the hotels are really legit, or some rinky dink joint...ya know the ol bait and switch? Do tell if it&#39;s the real mccoy!! :)

I&#39;m a Travelzoo subscriber and saw this deal too. It sounds very good. If I wasn&#39;t already booked to go to Rio and Salvador via another phenomenal deal, I&#39;d consider this one.

Tripadvisor.com is an excellent resource for researching hotels, destinations etc. That&#39;s been our go-to site to get a fairly accurate picture of where to stay around the corner or around the world. Check it out.

I was in Brazil for 16 days back in 2003. I went to Victoria. It was nice and I loved the earring shopping! I must say that you have to have a sexy body to enjoy the cloths though. But I got my hair, nails and feet done, including tip for only $15, in my 4.5 start hotel! They did a wonderful Dominican blow out (that was when I addicted to cemical crack).

Is travelzoo a reputable booking site? Has anyone actually used it? The deal sounds good but I don&#39;t want to be ripped off...
