Sunwing adds Isla Holbox, Mexico, as new travel destination

TORONTO, March 23, 2017 /CNW/ - Sunwing is pleased to announce that the unspoiled destination of Isla Holbox (pronounced "ole-bosh") has just been added to its expansive roster of vacation hotspots in Mexico. Part of the Yum Balam Natural Reserve, the island  offers vacationers a pristine tropical haven away from the hustle and bustle of more well-travelled  tourist hotspots. Comprised of sandy-white beaches and home to a diverse and protected ecosystem, Isla Holbox is a popular island destination for bird watchers, snorkellers and beach lovers alike. Along with a variety of land and water sports excursions available, travellers in the summer months can also opt to join a snorkelling or boat tour to view the annual migration of the whale sharks that takes place close to the island between the months of June and September.

Canada's #1 to the sun will be offering two quaint hotels on the island that are sure to appeal to a wide range of travellers. At both properties complimentary kayaks and bikes are available to enable independent explorations of the island. Windsurfing, kite surfing and fishing are also offered for an additional fee.

Families and couples alike are sure to appreciate the newly-built Villas HM Palapas Del Mar, a small, oceanfront hotel where guests can watch romantic sunsets from the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the white, sandy beach. Sun-worshippers looking to adopt a slower pace can also opt for Villas HM Paraiso Del Mar, where guests can soak away their worries in the large swimming pool surrounded by lush vegetation, dine on a range of delectable dishes from the breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets, and enjoy unlimited national drinks and cocktails.

The tour operator is also offering twin centre packages where guests can enjoy a combined stay of four nights on the peaceful Isla Holbox, and three nights in Riviera Maya at Reef Coco Beach or the cosmopolitan HM Playa del Carmen resort—both of which are quite close to shopping, nightlife, and the exciting attractions of Playa Del Carmen's 5th Avenue.

Sunwing is offering 7 or 14 night packages to Isla Holbox (including twin centre options with Playa del Carmen) from 7 gateways this coming season including:  Toronto, Calgary, Montreal , Quebec City, Edmonton, Ottawa, and St John's (NFLD). All Isla Holbox vacations include onward land and ferry transfers from Cancun.

From now until September 6th, 2017, travellers can enjoy regular Wednesday flights from Toronto to Cancun, and regular Monday flights from Quebec City or Bagotville to Cancun until April 24th, 2017. Plus, those looking to take advantage of the twin centre options will enjoy regular Monday flights from Toronto, Quebec, and Montreal to Cancun until October 2017.

All Sunwing packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where passengers can sit back and relax while on board, with award-winning inflight service that includes a sparkling wine toast, complimentary non-alcoholic beverage service and buy on board selection of light meals and snacks with choices inspired by Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford. Passengers also benefit from a generous complimentary 23kg checked luggage allowance.
