Sunwing Vacations Commences New Flight Service From Edmonton to Manzanillo, Mexico

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 23, 2014) - Residents of Alberta can look forward to a sunnier holiday season as Sunwing Vacations launches a new direct flight from Edmonton to Manzanillo on December 23, 2014. En route to one of Mexico's most vibrant and picturesque regions, customers of Sunwing Vacations can sit back and enjoy the airline's award-winning Champagne Service, where passengers are welcomed with a glass of champagne and enjoy additional courtesies including complimentary food, wine, in-flight entertainment and a generous 20kg baggage allowance.

With an average of 350 days of sunshine a year, Manzanillo is an ideal way to escape the doldrums of winter. Overlooking the twin bays of Manzanillo and Santiago, the local beaches are plentiful and scenic. The nearby Sierra Madre Mountains offer great opportunities for hiking, eco-tours and zip lining along the dense tree canopy, while the Pacific Ocean allows for boundless deep sea fishing. The capital, Colima, boasts the La Campana ruins, fascinating museums and a pristine historical centre to explore; while golfers can tee off at Isla Navidad, a world-class golf course designed by renowned golf course architect Robert Von Hagge.

Located a short distance from El Centro, Manzanillo's downtown area, is Barcelo Karmina Palace Deluxe, an all-inclusive beachfront resort with spacious suites and private terraces that boast stunning ocean views throughout the property, as well as a series of six interconnecting pools accented with pretty waterfalls. Couples can relax at the adults-only pool, while families can keep the kids busy at the supervised kids club. Meal times are effortless with à la carte and buffet dining options that serve fresh local fare and a variety of international cuisines.

Chief Operating Officer for the Sunwing Travel Group, Andrew Dawson commented, "As the cold weather settles in, we are pleased to introduce a new route from Edmonton to Manzanillo. This region of Mexico offers our clientele exceptional weather and tremendous versatility with a wide array of attractions and varied accommodation options to suit every taste."

A week's stay at the Barcelo Karmina Palace Deluxe starts from $795 plus $385 taxes per person based on two people sharing a Junior Suite Deluxe on an all inclusive basis, departing on January 20, 2015.
