Best site for lastminute deals?

My husband and I were in the process of booking a last minute getaway before last weeks tragedy. It seems that some sites I had looked at havn't been updated, or are no longer operating! We are still considering going since if we don't go this month, it will be a year since we get another chance. Can anyone recommend some great websites or agents for great prices and last minute deals on travel to Mexico or Costa Rica? Also, has anyone booked a trip SINCE the attack? We would be flying from N.Y. Thanks.

I have used Apple Vacations for my last 4 trips. They usually have last minute deals on their website www.applevactions.com
Look under the 'sizzlin specials' and go from there. Good luck!

In the case at least of hotels and car rental agencies, you may get the best deal by contacting those places directly. They know exactly what they have left to sell (and in many cases recently there are a lot of cancellations) and they may be willing to offer a lower price if they can bypass the agent's or wholesaler's commission. With so many places having e-mail now, it doesn't cost anything to ask.

you might want to try www.centralamerica.com they have a Costa Rican website that is very helpful. There are many of us in the tourism industry who have recently been
seeing a dramatic drop in both reservations and walk-in traffic due to the tragedy in the states. We were already having a special that is literally half off our normal rates.
There are great deals out there! This is a slow time in Costa Rica anyway, however, the deals are probably improving by the minute!
Best warm wishes!
