Beginning Jan. 7, Sunwing Vacations will offer direct flights from Toronto to Cartagena, Colombia.
A key 16th century trading post and recognised by UNESCO for its well-preserved historical centre - Cartagena boasts South America's most extensive military fortifications - the city is characterised by its Andalusian gardens, imposing battlements, opulent cathedral and colonial mansions. Sunwing customers will also be able to combine beach time with some local excursions, including opportunities for snorkelling and swimming, hiking through the rainforest at Tayrona National Park and scaling El Totumo volcano for a restorative mud bath at the summit.
Sunwing Vacations offers various accommodation options, including the Las Americas Resort and Spa and the Occidental Grand Cartagena.
A week’s stay at either property from Jan. 7, 14 or 21, 2015 is available from $995 per person plus $390 taxes based on double occupancy of a hotel room on an all-inclusive basis. Return flights from Toronto are included.
