In Honor of USA Sun Vacation Sale!

Flight Centre currently has an amazing offer for packages to USA Sun destinations, like California, Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii, Florida, AND Puerto Rico! We are offering $200 OFF PER ADULT for custom packages which include flights from Canada, accommodation (3 nights minimum), and an activity. You can email me any time for more information: cate.ciu@flightcentre.ca  . In honor of this sale, I wanted to include a couple of my own highlights from some of the places on the list!

  1. Dole Pineapple Plantation in Hawaii
    Oahu is breath taking. The Hawaiian culture just inspires the ultimate sense of CHILL. The pineapple…ahem CHERRY … on top of the trip, was the my visit to the Dole Planation, where I tried delicious pineapple ice cream and looked my very best in a bikini (haha get it? because I am a pineapple in the pic below)
  2. Grand Canyon just outside Las Vegas
    I did Grand Canyon independently the first time, and with a tour the second. I highly recommend the latter. There is so much to see, and it is pretty difficult not to get lost in the “awe” of it all during your visit. Also, the tour company packed an amazing snack box and provided comfy, festive blankies for when it gets nice and chilly at the Canyon.

  3. Disneyland in LA
    My first visit to Disney was as an adult, and I cried from accidental joy. Also, try the churros.
  4. Do everything in Phoenix!
    I love Phoenix, AZ. Like truly love it. The long highways and the tall palm trees are music to my soul. It’s home to the BEST BBQ joint in the universe (no exaggerations here) and huevos rancheros that will make your mouth taste like heaven. If you want to go to Phoenix, we need to CHAT.

February Paradise: Azores

az_smiguel_vilafrancaislet_0

Azores is a cluster of islands west of continental Portugal, but there are really no words to describe the beauty of this destination. It combines nature landscapes that will leave you breathless, finger-licking Portuguese cuisine, and a unique cultural experience away from familiar chains and brands seen everywhere in bigger Europe cities (why is there an H&M on every corner?)

When one of my clients said she wanted to go to Azores, I’m not going to lie..I did not know where Azores were (travel agents are people too!). For us, North Americans, Azores is a bit of a hidden treasure. And Europe, in general, can seem inaccessible. But, if you go at the right time (off season) and stay at the right places, a Europe package can cost you less than an all-inclusive. For example, this is the package I put together for my client.

  • Toronto, ON – Azores flights (direct; 6 hr)
  • Airport-hotel transfer roundtrip
  • 9 nights at a centrally located 4* Talisman boutique hotel
  • $1,181.96 CAD per person (based on 2 people in 1 room)
