Blogger Review: Dreams Riviera Cancun

We’re getting excited for the World Cup this year and so is Craig Zabransky from Stay Adventurous! Craig got the scoop on all the festivities, because why go to Rio when you have Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa? Craig talks about what’s planned as Dreams Riviera Cancun comes down with a case of World Cup fever.

“The goal is to create an environment to celebrate the World Cup,” said Craig. “Even guests not interested in soccer matches will still feel the samba sensations through the resort’s entertainment and events.”

Craig also got a sneak peek at the transformation of one of the conference rooms into Dreams Riviera Cancun’s own fútbol stadium. “The ‘stadium,’ complete with flat screen TVs in the center plans to show every match,” said Craig. “There also promises to be famous Mexican hospitality to quell the slightest thirst or hunger during the matches. Yes, servers at your service as you watch the match(es).”

Don’t believe him? Take a look at everyone from Dreams Riviera Cancun preparing for one the biggest sporting event of the year!
