St Maarten-based regional carrier Winair is adding more new flights for the upcoming holiday season.

The carrier is adding 24 additional seats for its St Maarten-Curacao flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Aruba flights will also be upgraded to the airline’s new Super ATR-72 with 72 seats, as will the carrier’s Bonaire flights.

Winair is also increasing its flights from St Maarten to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic to daily with the Super ATR-72, while Dominica flights will increase from four to five weekly flights.

The increases will be in effect from Dec. 1 through Jan. 15, 2018, according to the company.

“Customer feedback and the seasonal travel demands indicated that seat inventory remained insufficient,” said said Michael Cleaver, president and CEO of Winair. “By utilizing the larger and new Super ATR-72 aircraft WINAIR fulfilled these demands and is able to increase its capacity by 50 percent 4 days a week. With these enhancements we will be able to accommodate our customers needs.”

New Art District Planned in Kingston, Jamaica

Jamaica has made no secret of it plans to push tourism to its capital — and now Kingston is getting another important boost.

An organization called Kingston Creative is planning to establish a major new art district in the heart of downtown Kingston — an effort that is now being supported by the government of Jamaica.

Jamaica State Minister Alando Terrelonge announced this week that the government would be pledging more than $125,000 USD to the project.

“In 2015, Kingston was designated a City of Music. We now want Kingston to be designated a City of Art and Culture, because we do have the talent and the expertise,” Terrelonge said.

It’s an inspiring idea for a city that has long been one of the Caribbean’s cultural and artistic capitals, and mirrors successful art districts in other cities.

“With these first investments, we are one step closer to seeing the vision realized. We have seen tremendous support for this initiative over the past year, and we look forward to more entities coming on board in 2019,” said Andrea Dempster-Chung, co-founder of Kingston Creative.

The organization already organizes monthly events that gather artists and designers on every fourth Sunday, part of the initial groundwork for the art district plan.

“We have a real opportunity here to achieve social transformation and create a new reality for our talented young creatives. Together, we can leave downtown a safer more beautiful and vibrant place than we found it,” she said.

Riu’s highly-anticipated Costa Mujeres hotel has officially opened its doors in the Mexican Caribbean.

The new all-inclusive Riu Palace Costa Mujeres is set on Playa Mujeres just north of Cancun’s Hotel Zone, with a total of 600 rooms.

It’s the second Costa Mujeres resort for Riu, which opened its Riu Dunamar in the fast-growing development at the end of last year.

Amenities at the new-build resort include five swimming pools (two featuring swim-up bars), a private beach area, a Renova Spa, 24-hour room service, an on-site kids’ club, free Wi-Fi and six restaurants.

Guests at the Riu Palace Costa Mujeres also have access to the aforementioned Riu Dunamar, including attractions like the Splash Water World water park and the Dunamar’s nightclub.

That’s along with access to facilities at all of Riu’s other Cancun resorts, including the Riu Palace Peninsula, Riu Caribe, Riu Cancun and Riu Palace Las Americas.

“We are delighted to be offering our customers even more resort choices in the latest tropical destinations,”  said Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations for Sunwing, which is a major partner of the property. “The new Riu Palace Costa Mujeres is a great addition to our lineup of top-rated properties in the up and coming and highly sought-after luxury enclave of Playa Mujeres.”

The Riu Palace Costa Mujeres is directly adjacent to the Riu Dunamar.

Costa Mujeres, which is on the mainland across from the chic islet of Isla Mujeres, has become a hub for hotel development in the Mexican Caribbean.

The new Riu is the third resort to open in Costa Mujeres this fall, along with two Palladium properties: the TRS Coral and the Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres.
