Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — Sunwing is offering vacationers in the Hamilton and the Greater Golden Horseshoe area more winter sun destination options than ever, with a total of six flight services available this coming winter.
New destinations include Cayo Coco, Cayo Santa Maria and Cancun, plus Sunwing is bringing back perennial favourites Montego Bay and Punta Cana, along with Varadero, which will benefit from twice-weekly flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays for the first time.
Hamilton vacationers looking to head to Cuba can take advantage of Sunday flights to Cayo Coco between Dec. 15, 2019 and April 12, 2020.
A weekly flight service to Cayo Santa Maria will operate on Fridays from Dec. 13, 2019 until April 10, 2020.
Those looking to visit Mexico can take advantage of weekly flights to Cancun departing on Sundays from Dec. 15, 2019 until April 12, 2020.

“We are excited to be expanding our operations from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport,” says Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing. “Since we commenced operations in the Hamilton region in 2013, our flight services have been well-received and extremely popular with residents of Hamilton and the Greater Golden Horseshoe area. With the addition of these three new destinations, we will now be offering travellers access to more of our popular vacation hotspots than ever before.”
