If your reaction to the weather forecast in Edmonton lately is "nope," you are not alone. We know the snow has just hit the ground but we are already over it. If you'd rather sand under your feet instead of snow, we've got some exciting news. Canada's low-cost airline Swoop has just announced two new Mexican destinations in its Edmonton network and the flights are super cheap. These cheap flights from Edmonton to Mexico include trips to both Cancun and Mazatlan.

According to a press release by Swoop, the first route kicks off on October 31 with weekly flights to Cancun every Thursday. Prices are as low as $178 one-way. The next trip from Edmonton to Mazatlan starts on Saturday, November 2 with flights weekly on Saturdays for $179. Starting on December 17, there will also be weekly flights to Mazatlan on Tuesdays.

Though these prices don't apply to every single flight from Edmonton to these two destinations, you can find dates at these price points and sometimes even lower.

There could not be a more perfect time of year to jet off to Mexico and leave the grim Edmonton weather in the dust. If you're a fan of chasing summer, you might as well chase that sunshine right to a Central American beach.

Swoop launched flights to Puerto Vallarta earlier this month and the ultra-low-fare flights have us jonesing for a Mexican vacation. Swoop is known for offering amazing deals. "Our unbundled model allows us to do that at a price that works for them," said Steven Greenway, President Swoop in the press release.

If you're wondering what Cancun and Mazatlan are all about, here's what you need to know.

According to Visit Mexico, Cancun is known for its vibrant Mayan culture and its breathtaking surroundings. It sits on the Caribbean Sea, the clear waters sparkle, and the soft sands feel like an absolute dream beneath your feet.

Some of the highlights include the ruins in the “archaeological zone of El Rey or El Templo del Alacrán (The temple of the scorpion),” says Visit Mexico. There’s also amazing nightlife, an underwater museum, and endless things to see and do. Or, you can just do nothing on the beach. That’s always an option. 

Mazatlan has beautiful beaches as well, but what sets it apart is its colourful, historic downtown. The beautiful architecture, amazing bars and restaurants, and old-town charm will make you never want to leave. According to Visit Mexico, “the architecture and the nightlife will make of it one of your favourite places to visit.” 

Don't think, just book. We will see you in Mexico.
