All Inclusive Vacation Package to Cancun, Mexico III - Cost

By now, I know everyone is very interested in how much this vacation cost us. Here is the summary:

All Inclusive Package (Air, Hotel, Food, Drink, Tips, Transportation to/from airport)=$1563.78
Tips, Haircut for CJ, Local bus fares, Excursion to Xel-Ha, Food purchase at the airport & local mall, Souvenir shirt for CJ=$220
Long-term parking at O'Hare Airport=$45

TOTAL = $1828.78 (4 nights & 5 days for two adults)

*Regarding currency exchange, I did some research before we left for Cancun. It turned out that as a Bank of America customer, we can use Santander Serfin ATMs in Mexico without fees or service charges. Santander Serfin ATM s were easy to locate throughout the Cancun area and using the ATM gave us a very good exchange rate. For safety reason, we didn't use our credit card at all while in Cancun and everything was paid with cash.
