Our dear Canadian friends! Did you know that there are direct flights from Toronto and from Montreal straight to the stunning tropical Caribbean island of Roatan?

That’s right! During the long, cold winter, Air Transat and Sunwing Airlines both offer direct flights from these cities to help you tan your sun-starved skin and splash around in the warm Caribbean Sea.

Flights are about five hours and offer Canadians an incredible opportunity to quickly get to the Caribbean for an affordable, enjoyable holiday. Several popular resorts on the island also offer fantastic package deals during the winter months, offering stay-and-play options that will entice any type of traveler.

Whether you’re looking to SCUBA dive all day every day, or you’d like to lounge on a beach chair to soak in as many tropical rays as possible, you’ll find plenty of options in Roatan.

Bring the whole family for an action-packed vacation, or bring your sweetheart for a romantic getaway. You’ll find Roatan offers something for everyone.

Here are some tips for your trip from Canada to Roatan over the winter holidays:

–       Book your flights and your accommodation early! Winter is the busy season for Roatan, so if you want the best deals and the best options, book early to beat the crowds.

–       If you’re coming to Roatan to learn to SCUBA dive, try to do your classroom sessions at home before leaving for your holiday. It will not only save you time so you can get into the water faster, but it will also save you from having to do homework while you’re on vacation! Nobody wants to be indoors reading a book when they could be out on the beach watching the sunset. Take care of that part of your course first so you can enjoy more time enjoying the beautiful coral reef in Roatan.

–       Research and book your activities early. Again, the winter is busy season! If you have specific activities in mind to do during your holiday, be sure to schedule them in advance so you don’t miss out on anything. Contact the tour operators with your specifics so you can relax and just enjoy when you’re on the island.

–       Get onto Island Time as soon as you land in Roatan. No stress, just relax. You’re on vacation! Enjoy the warm sunshine, take advantage of free time to sway in a hammock, and revel in your holiday away from work and other obligations.
