Cancun-Havana Hotel/Flight deals - WHERE to pre-book?

WHERE to buy Cancun - Havana flight package/hotel deals for a decent price?

Ideally on Mexicana and not Cubana even if price a little higher.

We are going to Cuba in June.

We are Australian citizens and there is no technical issue at all about that, unlike Americans etc.

I am sure we will get screwed for the ~$US90 each or whatever for "Tourist card" fees etc.

We can fly into either Mexico City or Cancun for same price from here.

Last time I was in Merida there were dirt cheap package deals on the street for a few $100 for flights/hotel in HAV which I booked.

I am sure there still ARE in CUN especially, but need to pre-book if I can so as we get times right as we have a tight time frame.

Also want a day at Chichen Itza etc.

Are taxis worth getting at airport, or is it worth paying the ubiquitous "transfer" fee each way?

Anyone got a lead for a reliable agent who can do this for us and take credit cards?

Well, poking around I found this travel agency - but it seems you need to be able to read in Spanish, or you can call them in the US or the UK.

We are going down there next week, flying into Cancun on US via PHX, then Mexicana on the flight to Havana and Cubana back to Cancun. We are staying 3 nights at the Hotel Nacional. It is all booked through a Canadian company called WOW Cuba. We were also able to pay with a US credit card.

You can take a taxi at HAV airport or arrange a private transfer with a chauffeur and a limo. Or hire a car with/without driver for all your stay.

And of course they have rooms!
