The Pursuit of Pura Vida with Sunwing Vacations

Recently I had the opportunity to join 8 other Canadian journalists from across the country to explore Costa Rica, and stay at the brand new Planet Hollywood Beach Resort for 5 days, with Sunwing Vacations. Starting in December 2018, Sunwing began offering DIRECT flights from Vancouver to Costa Rica for their Sunwing Vacation Packages – and now that the winter is here, I am thinking it’s time to head back.

Sunwing currently flies to Costa Rica from 7 airports in Canada. One of the things I love most about Sunwing Vacations is that they include flights, hotels and hotel transfers within their cost, streamlining the booking process so you can spend more time getting excited about your trip. I flew out a night early from Vancouver so I could get to Toronto and meet the group, before flying together to Liberia, Costa Rica on our Sunwing Flight the following morning. I wanted to make sure to showcase everything we were lucky enough to experience, so come along on my travel diary with me!

5 Reasons to Visit Mexico City in 2018

In case you missed it, earlier this year I name Mexico City as our favourite destination of 2017. I am not someone who uses words like “best” or “favourite” lightly, so when I do, you can rest assured it means something. Over the last year, we have traveled to over 40 destinations with our partners around the world alongside the team. Each of them has been amazing and has added to our #DTDTravels roster. That being said, every single time I think about what destination had the biggest impact on me both personally and professionally, CDMX is top of mind. I thought during the holidays, and subsequent cold snap striking Canada, I would share my five reasons why you should visit Mexico City in 2018.
