Thomson 787 Dreamliner Destinations
Florida and Mexico are first in line for the Thomson 787 Dreamliner – but which one gets your vote? Read on for the lowdown on two of our best-loved destinations…
Top beaches, ancient sites and got-it-all resorts
Mexico’s Caribbean Coast knows how to please. Along the Yucatan peninsula you’ve got purpose-built resorts, tropical beaches, and just about every watersport going. In terms of places to stay, Cancun is the frontrunner. The main focal point is the Hotel Zone. 18-kilometre-long island with the Caribbean Sea on one side and a lagoon on the other. This lively strip is packed with malls, golf courses, and plenty of bars and clubs. An hour or so down the coast, Playa del Carmen is a compact version of Cancun. Most of the restaurants and bars are along Fifth Avenue, which runs parallel to the beach. Want to escape the crowds? Head further south to Playacar.
Theme parks, mega malls and national parks
Florida is the world leader when it comes to theme parks. There are no less than 15, including 6 Disney creations and other household names like Universal Studios and SeaWorld. White-knuckle rides are only one side of the coin, though. Florida’s other calling cards include city-sized malls, world-class golf courses and more restaurants per head than any other state.
You’ll be able to fly on the Thomson 787 Dreamliner on certain flights from Gatwick, Manchester, East Midlands and Glasgow. Please see the flight timetables for more details.
