Are you dreaming of sipping a cocktail on a glistening white sand beach?
While it may have been a temptation you've tried to avoid dreaming about for the past couple of years, British Columbians may finally have a safe opportunity to travel to tropical vacation destinations this fall and winter.
For locals looking to escape "Raincouver" in November, Swoop is currently offering a couple of ultra-low-cost deals that include direct flights and accommodation in sunny Puerto Vallarta.
With the accommodation search powered by Expedia, booking the hotel with the flight saves travellers up to 50 per cent off the cost of their hotel.
To take advantage of the deal, Vancouverites will fly out of Abbotsford International Airport. The outbound flight departs on Tuesday, Nov. 22 and returns on Sunday, Nov. 27. Guests will stay for five nights at the Bungalows Princess in a basic room.
The total cost of the package for two people, including the direct flights and accommodation, comes to $1,261.64 CAD including all taxes and fees. That cost breaks down to $630.82 CAD per person.
Discover Puerto Vallarta
World-famous tequila, delectable Mexican cuisine, beautiful beaches, and beaming sunshine are just a few of the reasons why people flock to Puerto Vallarta in droves. And, while it can be fun just to kick and back and relax at a resort, the city offers numerous things to see and do. What’s more, there are several ancient ruins nearby that make ideal day trips to explore.
Note: While the low-cost carrier is an extremely affordable alternative, it is worthwhile to note that there are several additional costs. For one, even a piece of carry-on luggage will cost extra, and the price varies based on the length of your journey. Seat selection will also cost extra, and the price also varies based on the length of your flight.
You can book your travel with Swoop.
