TORONTO, ON–(Marketwired ) – Tropical adventure came a little bit closer to residents of Alberta this week as Sunwing Vacations launched a new direct flight service from Edmonton to Liberia, Costa Rica. On the way to one of the country’s most captivating regions, passengers were treated to award-winning Sunwing Airlines’ Champagne Service, which features a complimentary glass of champagne, hot towel service, Hot & Fresh Bistro Meals™ served with a choice of wine at lunch and dinner, and complimentary in-flight entertainment, including first-run movies and a generous 20 kg free baggage allowance.
As the gateway to northwest Costa Rica, Liberia boasts stunning white sandy beaches to the west and mountains and rainforests to the east. Eco-adventure and exploration abound with hiking tours to the hidden waterfalls in Rincon de la Vieja National Park, or horseback riding expeditions through Miravalles National Park where visitors can discover geysers and fumaroles. ‘Jungle safaris’ along the Corobici River are a great way to get close to Costa Rica’s abundant wildlife. Liberia’s beautiful Pacific coastline is ideal for surfing, windsurfing, and is renowned for its excellent sport fishing.
Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer, Sunwing Travel Group, commented, “Liberia offers great options for travellers who enjoy a touch of adventure and has become an increasingly popular destination amongst our clientele that seek fun, experiential travel. We’re delighted to provide our Edmonton customer base with a direct, convenient route to this incredible eco-friendly oasis.”
