Toronto to The Caribbean, Costa Rica



Cartagena

Arajet recently announced they are going to start flying from Toronto with a nonstop flight to Santo Domingo (SDQ), Dominican Republic four times a week beginning in late October. This is their first route from Canada.

Arajet is based out of the Dominican Republic with connecting flights to Argentina, Aruba, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Jamaica, Mexico, Peru, and Saint Maarten.

They have plans to expand their network to about 11 more countries.

One thing that's interesting about Arajet is that they charge quite a bit less for checked bags ($65 CAD roundtrip) than for carry-on ($105 CAD roundtrip).

Arajet occasionally loads some pretty amazing prices to Sao Paulo, Brazil ($386 to $420 CAD roundtrip with a checked bag). Dates are limited. Note that as of this October Canadians require a tourist visa to visit Brazil.

And sometimes they offer some more than decent prices to Colombia (Medellin and Cartagena). $306 to $450 CAD roundtrip with a checked bag.

Lately Arajet has also started offering some cheap flights to the Caribbean in the range of $275 CAD roundtrip with a checked bag.

UPDATE: Arajet is now offering some cheap flights to San Jose, Costa Rica.
