Global Affairs Canada has recently elevated it’s advisory for Haiti to avoid all travel due to the reigning civil unrest throughout the country.   This is the highest level of the Canadian government’s Travel Advice and Advisories.

Considering the current level of insecurity, we strongly recommend that you respect this advisory.

Information regarding vacation packages
Given the uncertain accessibility of the road leading to the Royal Decameron Indigo Beach, Transat cannot guarantee safe transfers and has therefore stopped the sale of vacation packages, until the end of April 2019.

Information regarding flights
Until the government has reduced its alert level, all customers who have booked a flight to Haiti for the months of February, March and April 2019 are entitled to modify their reservation without penalty. Customers are invited to contact their travel agency or Air Transat’s Contact Center to adjust their file accordingly.

For the time being, Air Transat’s flight operations continue as planned.  However, the situation may change at any moment and without notice. 

 

Marseille Travel Guide

  • Provence’s capital

    Founded by the ancient Greeks in 600 BC, Marseille is not only France’s oldest city, but also arguably its loveliest. It also boasts 300 days of sunshine every year. Easily accessible by air thanks to its conveniently located airport, TGV link and road, it’s a city worth exploring on your own or as part of an organized tour.

Discover Marseille

 
  • Food and restaurants

    Seafood lovers go wild for the briny oysters at La Boîte à Huîtres, beyond fresh in their seaweed-entangled cardboard boxes. Try them served with sausage or silky foie gras.

    Few restaurants in Bordeaux offer a better view of the Garonne than L’Estacade. Set on stilts in the river itself, enjoy seafood and meat specialties that would make any diner’s mouth water. 

  • Culture and… wine!

    Any trip to one of the most important wine regions in the world will revolve around wine culture, and a holiday in Bordeaux should be no exception. Oenophiles can choose from several daily vineyard tours or tasting workshops to savour a tradition that dates back to the 8th century. The École du Vin offers two-hour introductory courses Monday through Saturday from July to September.

    Those who prefer to drink instead of taste enjoy evenings at Bar à Vin, a sleek but welcoming wine bar frequented by local connoisseurs.

  • Outings

    For a classic Bordelais experience, tourists join the locals in trolling the Marché des Capucins for the freshest market fare, pausing only to sip white wine with oysters at one of the shellfish stands. The best times to go are Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings—and be sure to top off the excursion with a seafood lunch at one of the surrounding cafés.

    Total (and literal) immersion in the region’s most famous export is the specialty at Spa Vinothérapie Caudalie. Get scrubbed down with crushed Cabernet before soaking in a red vine extract bath, and finish up with a relaxing Merlot wrap.
