This winter, discover another South...The South of Europe!
Did you know Portugal’s southern region is blessed with a sunny Mediterranean climate all year round? Even in winter, full days of rain are rare, with temperatures typically warm enough to eat outside during the day. Blooms appear in February and sunburns in March—if not sooner. Travel to Portugal and trail the drifting notes of fado through Lisbon’s cobblestone alleys, which will inevitably unveil jaw-dropping views round every bend; follow the wafting scents of cataplana to the Algarve, where you’ll discover the ocean in varying intensities of blue at Lagos, Sagres, and Carvoeiro; or follow the grapevine to Porto’s bewitching Douro Valley. Although the Algarve is known for its resorts, there’s much more to it in winter than uncrowded beaches. The milder conditions make it the perfect time to explore the countryside.
Get a taste of the local history and culture by visiting a traditional Romanesque village such as Alte, trying a local liqueur called medronho in Monchique, visiting the 13th century Moorish castle in Tavira, booking a tour and wine tasting at a nearby estate, visiting a local market (nearly every village and town has one), or learning how regional handicrafts such as pottery and olive oil soap are made.
Transat packages are specially designed to meet the wants of all types of travelers, combining relaxation and exploration. If you’re dreaming of escaping the winter – or at least part of it – enjoy a short or long stay in one of these sunny European destinations. You can choose from a selection of hotels with a great value, which often offer several free nights, kitchenettes, or free meals. It’s the perfect formula to soak up the local culture and explore all the attractions of a region at your own pace!
Enjoy perfect beach bliss in Varadero, Cuba!
Home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Cuba’s Varadero offers avid beachgoers the perfect getaway to unwind and relax on pristine white sands, while enjoying incredible views of the turquoise waters lapping the shore. Ideal for families, couples, groups, and singles, Varadero boasts incredibly warm hospitality and a rich local culture. Travelers can choose from a wide range of top-rated resorts, as well as enjoy a number of shops, water activities, and poolside entertainment.
After the sun sets, things heat up with a festival of cabarets, fabulous nightclubs, and outdoor amphitheaters, featuring a variety of shows such as Cabaret Tropicana – a super show with more than 200 dancers donned in sequin, feather costumes, and chandelier headdresses, swaying to Latin jazz and Afro-Cuban salsa beats and merengues. Taste a slice of paradise by sampling some tamales, one of the few indigenous foods that have remained a part of the modern Cuban diet.
As the saying goes: What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!
Congrats, you found it, the ultimate escape; a place where time, for all intents and purposes, stands still. Well not really, of course, but it is, for the most part, made completely irrelevant, especially after a few frenzied nights on the city’s (in)famous Strip. There are no clocks inside casinos, just never-ending buffets, ever-flowing drinks and adrenaline-fueled gaming tables... and then there’s the shows, the shopping, the nightclubs, and never-ending good times!
Sin City is one of the premier gastronomical destinations in the world. Everyone has heard about cheap buffets, but if you’re looking to explore food, Vegas really is the place to do it. If you’re in the mood for French cuisine, James Beard winning chef Michael Mina recently opened his latest restaurant, Bardot Brasserie at the Aria Resort. There’s no shortage of steak houses here either, serving up every cut imaginable, and some that probably aren’t. Wolfgang Puck’s CUT is rated as one of the top steakhouses in the city. Wicked Spoon has upped the buffet game to incredible heights, no longer serving large platters of over cooked meat and bowls of salad. With most of the food being made to order, this is buffet heaven. Try the fresh made Pad Thai that comes in its own little Chinese takeaway box. The gelato bar is also a must, featuring a dozen different flavors. Eat like a local at Stacks in the Mirage. Serving upscale comfort food like ‘adult tater-tots’, fried potato logs stuffed with brie & bacon, it’s low key but delicious.
There’s a reason people keep making movies about Sin City. From The Strip to the Hoover Dam, Las Vegas has something for everyone. Find the perfect vacation whether you’re looking for a family getaway, a romantic escape, or a fun filled, let loose and party adventure.
Getaway to the gorgeous Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos!
Endless spans of beautiful beaches, authentic restaurants, and a lively nightlife, visit Puerto Vallarta or Los Cabos for the perfect combination of relaxation and fun! Stroll along Puerto Vallarta’s Malecon, the seaside promenade that features local vendors, street artists, and a dazzling panoramic view of the bay. Stop by Old Vallarta and you’ll encounter cobblestone streets, a plethora of cafes, bars, and restaurants, as well as taco stands and markets! In Los Cabos, you can explore the desert on an outback and camel safari, and learn about the area’s native vegetation. For those looking for a thrill, zip line and soar over canopies and canyons, or go on an ATV and UTV adventure! The options are truly endless for these two amazing destinations!
