Have you forgotten what it feels like to walk around without your puffy parka on? Do you remember having bare skin exposed and feeling the warmth on your skin? Puerta Vallarta in Mexico is about 40 degrees warmer than Edmonton right now. There are cheap YEG flight deals that can get you there so you can be beachside with a Corona in no time.
This winter has been absolutely brutal for Alberta. It was trapped under a cold dome for a long while recently when the temperatures plummeted to a terrifying -45 in some parts of the province.
For sun-seekers in Edmonton, there are a lot of new opportunities for cheap flights to Mexico now thanks to low-cost carriers.
YEG Deals reported that the WestJet owned low-cost carrier Swoop had some seriously juicy deals.
Flights from Edmonton to sunny Mexico are less than $300 so make sure you brush up on your Spanish.
Imagine walking outside with bare legs and sunglasses on, filling up on tacos and watching the waves roll in.
Even though Edmonton is actually a lot of fun in the winter with a ton of events and fun things to do, sometimes the cold just gets to you.
When the prices are this low, you'll have more money to spend on things like food and accommodation.
You might have to pay extra if you check a bag, but honestly, a good packer just needs a carry-on for a two- or three-day trip.
It's Mexico, after all, you just need t-shirts and jeans, not your snow gear.
Here's How To Get The Deal
Most of the cheap flights are coming to us right now courtesy of Swoop. Their Spring Sale has a ton of cheap flights available all across Canada.
You can book directly through the Swoop site looking for flights from YEG to Mexican locations like Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta or Cancun for around $300 to $360.
You can also use Skyscanner where we found a flight for $269 from Edmonton to Puerto Vallarta.
Round trip flights for less than $300 mean that you and your BFFs could afford to squeeze in a trip to Mexico to reward yourselves after a long Albertan winter.
