It’s a good day for sunshine

November in New Brunswick: the perfect time to dream about sinking your toes into white, sandy beaches in the warm sun, watching gentle azure waves in the ocean. Take time today to schedule your break from the long days of winter marching relentlessly in our direction.

Sunwing launches weekly direct flights from the Fredericton International Airport (YFC) to Cuba, Dominican Republic, and Mexico beginning February 10! With easy parking and a convenient location, flying out of YFC makes your travel as smooth as it can be.

Whether you’re looking for quiet solitude on stunning beaches, an active scuba diving adventure on colourful coral reefs, tastes of local cuisine or time to let loose and dance the night away, Sunwing will deliver the experience you need to re-charge.

Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba

Cayo Santa Maria is a small island off Cuba’s northern coast whose main attraction is without a doubt 13 km (8 mi) of magnificent fine sand beaches, backed by the lush vegetation of Cayo Santa María Wildlife Refuge, which shelters birds such as the Cuban trogon. Excursions such as deep-sea fishing or swimming with dolphins create memories to last a lifetime, in a piece of paradise that must be seen to be appreciated.

 

Cayo Coco, Cuba

The white-sand beaches in Cuba’s Cayo Coco are protected from high surf by coral reef platforms, part of the second largest barrier reef on the planet.It is an ideal spot for scuba/snorkelling exploration or quietly soaking up the sun. While Cayo Coco may feel like its own private paradise, you can easily access the rest of Cuba with a Sunwing excursion.

 

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

You will discover friendly, welcoming people in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, ready to share local speciality Mamajuana; a drink made with rum, red wine, honey and a combination of herbs and tree bark. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!

Choose to relax near the warm and crystal clear waters enjoying a steady warm breeze and the rhythms of Latin music, or take a Sunwing excursion including ziplines, off-road dune-buggy tours or even horseback riding. Boredom is never an option!

 

Cancun, Mexico

Visitors to Cancun, Mexico will welcome the miles of beaches and warm, clear water, where you may discover a kaleidoscope of tropical sea species, ranging from the long and majestic lemon shark, to a number of rare and endangered sea turtles. An unexpected delight is the country’s Mayan heritage and the archaeological legacy it has left behind. Sunbathers can tan themselves close to ancient ruins and beachcombers can wander in the shadow of looming temples two millennia old.Book an excursion to 7 Wonders of the New World: the archaeological site of Chichén Itzá.

History not your cup of tea? With modern shopping centres and super chic fashion stores, as well as an array of local crafts, arts and food markets, (practice your haggling skills!), a little retail therapy is never too far away. Or try your swing at one of the many golf courses close by.
