Transat to offer Santiago de Cuba for the first time starting this winter

MONTREAL — Transat has added Santiago de Cuba to its growing Sun portfolio, which now totals 35 destinations.

Beginning on Dec. 19, 2018, Air Transat will fly out of Toronto every Wednesday. Santiago de Cuba, Cuba’s second-largest city after Havana, is a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its white-sand beaches, numerous palaces and rich history.

To encourage travellers to explore the destination on their own, Transat has also launched its very first ‘Your Way’ tour in Cuba called ‘Cuba Your Way’. Already popular in Europe, ‘Your Way’ tours take care of transportation, accommodation and a number of meals, giving independent travellers complete freedom to explore at their own pace.

Transat also offers other types of packages that highlight the new destination, including the Santiago de Cuba Duo package that includes three nights in the city and four nights by the beach. This is in addition to beach packages at all-inclusive hotels.

Hotels on offer include the beachfront Brisas Sierra Mar Los Galeones and Club Amigo Carisol Los Corales. For a different side of Cuba, suggest the Meliá Santiago de Cuba and Iberostar Casa Grande in the heart of the city.
