Caribbean for Edmonton travelers. Montego Bay is a natural choice. We've been
sending Canadians there for over two decades, ever since the beginning of the
all-inclusive concept. Today, we offer dozens of resorts in Montego Bay and
surrounding areas, including seven ultra all-inclusive Sandals & Beaches
resorts," said Louise Le Beau Air Canada Vacations' Vice President Payload and
