CANCUN, MEXICO


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


Flight duration: 4 hours, 40 mins.


Cancun has some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world, but if you think that is all Cancun has to offer, you don’t know Cancun. Cancun is now Mexico’s largest tourism resort area and the Caribbean’s premiere destination. Luxuri- ous hotels and beaches, spas, high-end restaurants and shop- ping will keep elite vacationers happy, while sports enthusiasts will be wowed by the snorkelling, diving, fishing and boating activities. Traditional cultural activities, such as bull fights and fiestas with mariachi bands are not hard to track down either. In Mexico, life is a party, and there is no shortage of places


to party in Cancun. Raucous bars line the hotel strip, and qui- eter lounges can be found inside hotels or on the beach. Te rich Mayan culture is evident everywhere here. Te fa- mous ruins of Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba are well worth the ride down the Mayan Riviera to experience. If you just can’t leave the beach for a single day, the El Rey Ruins are located right in the hotel zone. Families can relax knowing that there are tons of activities


for children. Most tours are not only child-friendly but of- fer reduced rates for children. Te Crococun Zoo, located just outside Cancun, offers a fantastic interactive experience and the Cancun Interactive Aquarium, Xcaret, Wet n’ Wild water park and submarine rides are also great locations to visit.

Welcome to the Bahamas, an island paradise resplendent with bewitching natural beauty and friendly, warm smiles. A place blessed with endless tranquil beaches and some of the clear- est blue waters on earth. Te Andros Island Barrier Reef, the third largest barrier reef in the world, offers beginners and experienced divers views into the rapturous underwater world below. Expert divers can experience the dive of a lifetime, swimming toward the Tongue of the Ocean, a place where the ocean suddenly drops to depths of more than 160 kilometres. Embrace the island life by relaxing on the beach, shopping the straw markets for woodcarvings, baskets or hats, relish- ing the abundant water activities, watching wildlife, absorbing some history and the sites. Te true heart of the Bahamas is reflected in the lively festivals, goombay rhythms and the art and dance of its people, so be sure to seek out a show or fes- tival if you can. Explore the riches of “Millionaires Row”, visit an open air


fruit market or do some duty-free shopping. An excursion to the Garden of the Groves Park won’t disappoint. It is 12 acres (48,000 square kilometres) of winding paths, cascading water- falls and flora and fauna from all around the world.
