TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 11, 2015) - Canadians not relishing the thought of frantic last-minute Christmas shopping and cooking for all the family this year still have the chance to enjoy a tropical holiday escape thanks to Sunwing Vacations and their exclusive hotel partner, Memories Resorts & Spa, a collection of both family-friendly and adults only resorts located on some of the finest beachfronts in the Caribbean. Limited availability still remains at a number of the chain's Cuba properties over the holiday period; plus with discounted pricing available, there will still be something left in the budget to make sure the Christmas stocking is filled.

Combining an extensive pool complex, spa, leisure amenities and children's program with its own exclusive adults-only section set on Varadero's pristine white sands, Grand Memories Varadero could be the perfect sunny retreat over the holidays with a host of yuletide fun in store -- from giant sandcastle contests for all ages to Cuban cocktail-making lessons and salsa master classes. Plus with seven restaurants (six with à la carte options) in addition to eight bars there are plenty of opportunities to see in the New Year in style.

Families that choose to take their tiny tots to Memories Varadero Beach Resort for the holidays can look forward to seeing their faces light up as Santa arrives by catamaran. Also in the program are shows featuring popular Disney characters, pirate-themed adventures and afternoon tea with the fairies.

Encircled by lush gardens leading to a tranquil beach front, the Caribbean-inspired Memories Caribe Beach Resort in Cayo Coco, Cuba also has plenty of fun in store for holiday guests. When they are not making a splash in the pool or trying a host of non-motorized water sports on the beach, younger guests can dance with Santa at the mini disco or join in a festive piñata game; while older ones are sure to enjoy the Christmas-themed foam party. Also in laid-back Cayo Coco, Memories Flamenco Beach Resort is celebrating the holiday season with salsa and merengue classes, a Miss Claus contest and Farewell 2015 party.

Bordered by white sands and the Atlantic Ocean, Holguin is Cuba at its most verdant. Families that choose to spend the holidays at Memories Holguin Beach Resort, will be treated to cookie-decorating and Christmas craft workshops, singing from the local choir and a host of New Year celebrations from letting off commemorative balloons to the year's 'First Swim' event.

All packages to Memories Resorts include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where travellers can sit back and enjoy the airline's award-winning Champagne Service together with a generous 23kg checked luggage allowance.
