MONTREAL — Sunwing is inviting Canadians to discover San Andrés, a new destination for the tour operator for winter 2022-23.
Located off the coast of Nicaragua in the Caribbean Sea, the quintessential island paradise is available to book now through Sunwing. The company notes that San Andrés is well-known to travellers in Colombia for its rich culture, white sand beaches, coconut palms, year-round summer weather and some of the best diving conditions in the world, with easy access to restaurants and bars in town for local flavour.
Plus there are plenty of accommodation options on San Andrés, with six Decameron All Inclusive Hotels & Resorts properties available through Sunwing. All six are within minutes of the Caribbean Sea, downtown San Andrés and the airport.
Lyne Chayer, General Manager, Sunwing Vacations Québec, says: “To continue offering Canadians more opportunities to vacation to paradise under our wing, we’re thrilled to be adding more diverse destinations to our lineup that our customers can book this winter, including San Andrés in Colombia. With beautiful beaches, natural cays that are great for diving and snorkelling, sunny skies and welcoming people, plus access to six Decameron properties offering an intimate resort getaway, we’re excited for our customers to experience the richness of Colombia in this beach destination this winter, and share in our love of San Andrés.”
San Andrés is a hub for nature lovers, with multiple cays, sandbanks and green spaces. Playa Spratt Bight is a top beach pick, while the ‘Sea of Seven Colours’ offers close to 40 diving sites and well-preserved coral reefs. And San Andrés’ Botanic Gardens is a sprawling space in the island’s centre where the vegetation dates back to the dinosaur era.
The island is also home to a multicultural community blending Anglo-Caribbean Raizal and Colombian cultures with local restaurants, bars and boutiques.
The six Decameron properties on the island, all available through Sunwing, include Decameron Marazul, Decameron Maryland, Decameron Aquarium, Decameron San Luis, Decameron Los Delfines and Decameron Isleno.
Sunwing says clients can expect the same variety of amenities and services with Decameron in San Andrés that the brand is known for in the other popular destinations it serves, including Mexico, Jamaica and Panama.
Bookings are now open for departures starting Dec. 14, 2022 from Montreal, with Wednesday flights. Sunwing says there’s potential for more departures for the upcoming winter season as customer demand evolves.
