Every time I get the chance, I ask a flight attendant about which Caribbean island is their favourite. I figure, they should know, right? Antigua comes up over and over again. So, I keep it on my radar looking for a bargain. It’s usually 30% more expensive than Mexico and twice the price of Cuba. But…. what if it is twice as nice? Well, finally a bargain. Someone should go and report back to the group!
Air Canada got my attention yesterday with some great deals on caribbean vacations.
I looked further and found that that the fine print excludes children in the discounts. Therefore these excellent deals are for couples, or friends, but not necessarily families or single parents.
If you search the site, you’ll see numerous packages available from Toronto. If you find something you like, then go to the main search page of Air Canada Vacations and search the same dates with your origin airport of YWG (Winnipeg). You will likely see the same deal, mere dollars more with a Winnipeg – Toronto connecting flight.
Travel dates for this sale are May thru October, but must be purchased by March 27th. You may also get a further discount by redeeming some of your aeroplan points. (26,500 points equals a $250 discount.)
The best deal…. the one that really got my attention was Aruba. As low as $864 per adult. (Flights, hotel, transfers, taxes, breakfast). I would absolutely love to go to Aruba. And the following 3 hotels are either on or near Eagle Beach.
Eagle Beach in Aruba consistently makes the “best beaches” lists. It is known for its soft white sand.
Curious as to the best all inclusive resorts? What about the best beaches? It’s all there! Defintely check it out.
One of my all time favourite beach holidays has earned the number two spot on the world’s best beaches list. Congratulations once again to the Turks and Caicos islands! We stayed at the Ocean Club Resort, located right on Grace Bay beaches. It was glorious!
If you’d like to go to the Turks and Caicos islands, both Westjet and Air Canada will take you there. A round trip flight from Winnipeg will cost about $550 at an average sale price.
Since the Turks and Caicos main tourist island of Providenciales is a developed island with services and standards similar to North America and Europe, you will not see all-incluvice packages offered as the norm. Here, except for the Beaches Resort and Club Med which ARE all inclusive, you will pay as a european style vacation, sourcing your own food and beverages.
Did your favourite beach make it to the list? Where would you recommend? Please do tell us in the comments. Have a question about the Turks and Caicos… just ask! I’ll do my best to answer or find you resource that can.
