Sunwing Introduces New Flight to La Ceiba, Honduras From Toronto and New Hotel, The Lodge Pico Bonito

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - July 03, 2014) - As Sunwing Vacations continues to expand and improve our product offering in Central America, we are pleased to offer a new flight to La Ceiba, Honduras from Toronto starting December 15th, and will re-introduce its Montreal-to-La-Ceiba flights due to the positive feedback received from past travellers who have enjoyed exploring this unique destination.

In addition, Sunwing has added a new boutique hotel to its La Ceiba line-up, The Lodge at Pico Bonito, part of Sunwing's Small & Friendly Collection. Located at the foot of Pico Bonito National Park and 15 minutes from La Ceiba International Airport, this resort seamlessly combines nature with luxurious comfort. Voted among the Top 50 eco-lodges of the world by National Geographic Traveller, the resort offers the adventure of the outdoors, the beauty of the rainforest, and the personal service of a boutique hotel.

Featuring comfortable cabins with top-notch amenities including a private deck with a hammock, iPod connection, free Wi-Fi access in the rooms, lobby and common areas, and more, The Lodge at Pico Bonito is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

Known as the capital of eco-tourism in the area, La Ceiba is a port city on the northern coast of Honduras. La Ceiba's alluring backdrop of verdant mountains and turquoise shores makes this city a favourite with Canadians. Thrill-seekers will delight in rafting on the Cangrejal River, while sun worshippers will flock to the white sands of Cayos Cochinos -- an island off the coast of La Ceiba. The Unta Sal National Park features tropical rainforest and pristine jungles, a coral reef and mangroves, while it's possible to get a taste of the indigenous Garifuna community's music, dances and culinary traditions on an excursion.
