Sunwing Vacations Introduces New Summer Service to Saint Maarten From Vancouver

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 14, 2016) - This summer for the very first time, Sunwing Vacations is offering holiday packages to St. Maarten from Vancouver. Available weekly from May 18 to August 24, 2016, via Toronto, the tour operator offers West coast travellers easy access to this tropical island of contrasts.

Where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean, St. Maarten combines a fascinating Dutch heritage with plentiful water sports opportunities, ecotourism adventures in the national park and stunning beaches. The cultural island capital, Philipsburg, offers excellent shopping and sightseeing opportunities while Maho village is renowned for its stylish nightlife.

Available exclusively through Sunwing Vacations, Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and Casino could be an excellent springboard from which to explore this fascinating island. Set on a lush beachfront it offers endless fun and entertainment for families and couples alike, including on-site snorkel lessons, evening entertainment and beautiful spa. Families are sure to appreciate the facilities specially designed for younger guests offered at this Smile Resort™ including a complimentary kids club and dedicated children's pool.

Along with exploring St. Maarten this summer, residents of Vancouver could also take advantage of two other flight connections from Vancouver to the Caribbean. Commencing May 21 and operating until August 27, 2016 a new Saturday service via Toronto will connect vacationers with the sandy beaches of Jamaica. Sunwing will also be offering the popular Vancouver connection (via Toronto) to Punta Cana for a second summer season running; beginning with a Thursday weekly service with departures between May 26 and August 25, 2016 and rising to a twice weekly service with the addition of a convenient Sunday departure between June 13 and August 28, 2016 inclusive.
