We have just completed another round of analysis for another of our travel clients and found the conversion from a link on a travel forum converts 3 times higher than a visitor from adwords and twice as high than a visitor from organic search.
Does any of your analysis show a similar pattern?

Interesting finding but I'd think that this was to be expected to be honest.
I think it's normal for any more-human approach to have a better result compared to a more human-less approach. Wouldn't you say so?

I have to say before we started bringing in the data, my hunch was that conversions from organic and social media posts would be closer.

I guess it depends on how relevant the target phrases. From your initial post you mentioned a travel social media network, which you are comparing to a Paid Search campaign, much of which i would suggest is highly generic.
Personally without knowing the full extent of your study, it sounds a bit like you could be comparing apples with pears
