TORONTO, Oct. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunwing is pleased to announce it will be expanding its Cuban offering this winter with the addition of a seasonal flight service to Cienfuegos, located on the island’s southern coast. Direct flights from Toronto will operate on Mondays between December 17, 2018 and April 22, 2019 inclusive.

Sunwing is the only Canadian leisure carrier to offer a direct flight service from Toronto to this beautiful beach destination this coming winter. Known as the ‘Pearl of the South’, Cienfuegos attracts travellers with its elegant colonial architecture, rich culture and lively Caribbean spirit. The destination is also popular with divers, who can discover colourful coral and an array of vibrant tropical fish. Vacationers who choose this popular beach destination can also look forward to visiting Trinidad – recognized by UNESCO World Heritage Site for being one of the best preserved cities in the Caribbean since the 16th century and known for its unique architecture and cobblestone streets.

President of Tour Operations, Andrew Dawson, commented on the news, “We are very excited to be offering Cienfuegos this winter and to be giving travellers another varied Cuban destination to explore. From pristine beaches to fascinating culture, we’re sure that Cienfuegos will prove to be a popular addition.”

Vacationers could opt to stay at Memories Trinidad Del Mar, recently added to Sunwing’s roster of hotels. Located near Trinidad, the resort is designed to reflect the village’s beautiful Spanish colonial architecture. Guests can take advantage of two refreshing pools, gym and tennis courts and an array of non-motorized sports together with a mini club and playground for children.
