United Airlines has announced the addition of eight new routes and boosted schedules to 19 other destinations in Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America.

Starting in December, United will begin new nonstop service between Los Angeles and San Jose, Costa Rica and San Pedro Sula, Honduras; between Denver and Belize City, and San Jose, Costa Rica; between Washington DC and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The carrier is also resuming service between Cleveland and Cancun.

With its new service to Belize and San Jose, United now offers nonstop service to eight destinations in Latin America from Denver.

In January, United will begin two new nonstop services between both Los Angeles and San Francisco and Liberia, Costa Rica. The new flights are subject to government approval.

"These eight new routes highlight the continued expansion of our network and build upon our strong presence in Latin America," said Patrick Quayle, United's vice president of International Network and Alliances. "Our new and increased service offers travelers more opportunities to find warm-weather getaways and visit friends and family over the winter season."

This winter, United is also adding more flights to some of Mexico's most popular beach destinations including Cancun, San Jose del Cabo and Puerto Vallarta, and is adding more weekend service to Cozumel from Chicago, Denver and Houston.
