LOS CABOS, MEXICO


How to get there: Two flights per week on Sunwing and WestJet seasonally


Flight duration: 4 hours, 45 mins.


Los Cabos, which translates into “Te Capes”, is one of the oldest-settled parts of the southern Baja Peninsula and is rich in history. Te Sea of Cortez meets the desert and moun- tains, forming a landscape that is unsurpassed in its beauty. Tere are activities here to entice anyone, from world-class golf courses to deep-sea fishing, spas and water sports. Tere is always something to do. Learn how to surf or go kayaking. Rumble through the mountainous terrain on an ATV or in a Hummer. Visit tranquil San Jose del Cabo with its cobblestone streets to see and feel an authentic Mexican town, or party it up in glitzy Cabo San Lucas. Hip nightclubs line the street, in- cluding Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Cantina. Te marina is circled by the Golden Zone filled with malls such as the high-end shops at Luxury Avenue Mall, tantalizing dockside restaurants and a parade of locals and tourists. You may want to venture into Todos Santos, a popular des- tination for retirees, who adore its relaxed lifestyle. Tis area is filled with ecological tourist activities and a Bohemian style different from both San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. You can visit a vineyard, get your fill of delicious, fresh seafood and even check into the Hotel California. But be warned, you may never leave.


PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO


How to get there: Seven flights per week on WestJet, Sunwing and Air Transat seasonally


Flight duration: 4 hours, 45 mins.


Te city of Puerto Vallarta has a variety of attractions worth visiting. Explore the historic city centre and take a walk along the Malecon, an 870-metre-long boardwalk. Shoppers will delight in hunting for treasures in the Pueblo Viejo (Old Town Artisan Market) and the Municipal Market. South of the Cuale River, you will find Old Town Vallar-


ta, also known as the Romantic Zone. With its cobblestone streets, art galleries, boutiques, cafes and nightclubs it is a great place to visit day or night. Try local delicacies such as shrimp broth, chicken mole, stuffed chillies, fish and tacos. Los Muertos Pier, built over 100 metres into the sea, is the perfect place to take in the spectacular sunsets. Check out Our Lady of Guadalupe Church; it is recognized


worldwide both for its wonderful architecture and famous crown, and as a meeting point for the thousands of pilgrims that visit it year-round. A visit to Los Arcos, located to the south of the city, is a definite must. Tese are small granite islands jutting out of the water in arch-shaped rock formations. Snorkelling, diving and swimming through the smaller arches and their caves and tunnels is an experience you won’t soon forget.
