Say Goodbye to Canada’s Winter Blues with Convenient Flights to this Legendary Mexican Beach Destination.
The days are shortening and growing colder, with thoughts of how to escape the winter chills on the minds of many northerners. This coming season, Sunwing and Air Transat are making those dreams more accessible with new direct flights connecting Montreal and Toronto to Acapulco, Mexico’s original beach destination.
“Acapulco has always been a great destination for Canadian tourists looking to escape the cold. Now with new flights from two important cities, enjoying perfect weather is easier than ever,” said Pedro Haces, president of the Acapulco Destination Marketing Office.
Beginning on Jan. 3, 2018, and running through March 21, 2018, Sunwing, Canada’s leading low-cost airline is inaugurating direct flights from Montreal and Toronto to Acapulco, with weekly Wednesday departures. The leisure airline Air Transat will also inaugurate a direct flight from Toronto to Acapulco every Tuesday starting in December 2017.
Major events this winter include the Telcel Mexican Tennis Open, held in Acapulco from Feb. 26 through March 3, 2018. Sponsored by Telcel and hosted at the Princess Mundo Imperial Acapulco, major international competitors will include Venus Williams, Rafael Nadal, Juan Martin del Potro.
As part of its plans to update tourism infrastructure, Acapulco will also debut a new state-of-the-art airport terminal in 2018 that will ease passenger flow and increase arrivals capacity. Other major new attractions include XTASEA, the world’s largest over-the-ocean zipline.
With perfect year-round weather and festivals all winter, Acapulco is a great escape from the cold. Outdoor enthusiasts will find much to bask in, as Acapulco offers five major golf courses, tennis, kayaking, scuba diving, windsurfing, sport fishing along with bungee jumping or parachuting for the most adventurous ways to enjoy the sun any time of year. Nature lovers can enjoy a tour of the mangroves at Coyuca or Tres Palo lagoons, and indulge in a mineral all-natural mud mask on site.
Mexico’s original beach destination, Acapulco is located in the state of Guerrero, Mexico, on the Pacific Coast. Situated on a deep bay with sunshine, balmy temperatures and warm seas year-round, its golden beaches are ideal for relaxing, swimming and enjoying an array of water sports, while the city itself offers history, culture and legendary glamour. The landmark Fort of San Diego dates to the colonial era, and the fully restored, star-shaped fortress, is home to the acclaimed Acapulco Historic Museum. La Quebrada is the place to watch Acapulco’s world-famous cliff divers, whose daring feats are as popular – and thrilling – today as they were 82 years ago. Acapulco has a dynamic dining scene, whose innovative chefs combine Mexican culinary traditions with global inspiration when preparing the finest Pacific seafood complemented with fresh and local ingredients. All of this and more make Acapulco the must-visit beach destination in Mexico.
