New in Cuba: Transat invites travellers to discover Cayo Cruz

Montreal, August 29, 2019 – Transat is pleased to offer Canadian travellers two brand-new hotels on Cayo Cruz, an island off Cuba’s northern coast less than an hour from Cayo Coco airport.

Known for its magnificent white-sand beaches, often likened to those of Cayo Largo, and as a location for exceptional sport fishing, Cayo Cruz offers an ideal combination of relaxation and exploration. It is located under two hours from Camagüey, capital of the province of the same name, which features vibrant history and cultural activities. Transat is also offering a one-day excursion to the city of Camagüey from Cayo Cruz.

For now, Transat is offering packages in two recently built 4.5-star hotels in Cayo Cruz. The Valentin Cayo Cruz is an adults-only establishment that features 546 deluxe rooms and facilities in a cleanly designed layout, in a captivating setting with five restaurants and three pools. For its part, the Hotel Marina & Spa Cayo Cruz is a boutique hotel featuring modern décor, 60 spacious rooms and a choice location near the marina.

Cayo Cruz will be accessible with Air Transat this winter via direct flight to Cayo Coco from Montreal (four flights weekly), Quebec City (two flights weekly), Toronto (four flights weekly), as well as Ottawa, Hamilton and Halifax (all three one flight weekly).
