Why It's A Deal On a recent Kayak search, we found round-trip airfare between New York and Liberia for $431 in early May (United Airlines). Add that to about $464 per person for a four-night stay at Barceló Langosta Beach, and you'd pay at least $895 for airfare and hotel alone if you booked independently. For $124 more, this deal also gets you a five-day car rental.
More Upgrades to an SUV start at about $29 per person.
