Planning to take a sunny break in 2020? Some of Calgary's cheapest flight ideas are also some of the sunniest and we've found the best tropical destinations you won't want to miss. We all deserve at least a week or two spent sitting on the beach sipping from a coconut.

Whether you want a standard week in an all-inclusive resort or you're looking for a little more adventure, you can create the perfect vacation for you in 2020 and have money to spare.

If you rather visit Europe, keep an eye out for future flight deals. Back in October, we found flights to Paris for just $260.

Don't get dragged into yet another weekend in Las Vegas, treat yourself to some sun and real tropical vibes this year because you've earned it.

Here's how you can find flights for some of the top tropical destinations for less than $500:

Check out Skyscanner and enter Calgary/YYC as your starting off point. Then, for a destination select the "Everywhere" option.

You can either put in your preferred vacation dates or opt to use the "Cheapest Month" tool to find the lowest flights. It's perfect if your days off are flexible or if you haven't yet booked your time off for 2020.

Still can't afford these flights? Luckily, we're in Canada so a camping trip is always an option.
