what could you expect to pay for hotels during carnival

I am not going to carnival in 08 but I plan to go sooner or later

I got an email from a carnival tour company where a 5 night package air and hotel was $2450 for 5 nights

they only listed 1 hotel and 1 guesthouse

but is that what I should expect to pay ? is it a good indication of the going rates ?

Airfare to Trinidad around carnival time is around $700.00,that leaves $1750.00 divided by 5=$350.00/night....that's a lot of money,they must be making a big commission,you can do much better on your own,just book way in advance.
