Sunwing Adds New Destination in Cuba

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 18, 2022

Canadian travel company Sunwing has added a new destination in Cuba: Cayo Largo, off the island’s southern coast. 

Sunwing says it will have 11 resorts available to travelers, many of which are currently being rebuilt or renovated as early as November. 

The resorts will be rebranded as Grand Memories, Memories, Starfish and Villa properties. 

“Cuba has long held its top spot as a Canadian favoure for Sunwing customers and, as we expand on our offerings to welcome more guests back to this beautiful island, we’re thrilled to bring new life to Cayo Largo with Sunwing as the destination’s leading choice of tour operator in the Canadian market,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing.”

The island is known for having some of the best diving in the wider Caribbean. 

It also places a premium on sustainability, with only electric vehicles allowed and a ban on plastic use. 

“Cayo Largo offers an intimate experience in a small, boutique setting that our customers won’t find anywhere else in Cuba, along with great weather, beautiful beaches, new all inclusive offerings and now with an exclusive international food import license, more comforts of home, all at an attractive price point. We anticipate the fall and winter season in this destination hot spot will sell fast,” Dawson said. 

Sunning is operating five weekly direct flights from multiple Canadian cities to Cayo Largo; that includes Friday flights from Toronto and Montreal; Saturdays from Quebec City and Ottawa; and Tuesdays from Halifax. 

The first flights begin Nov. 4.
