Five Things To-Do When You Visit the Riviera Maya
As most of you know, there are four Dreams Resorts & Spas located in the beautiful Riviera Maya and Cancun region. The Riviera Maya is located on the northeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo and boasts absolutely amazing beaches and exciting entertainment. If you’re visiting us soon at Dreams Resorts & Spas, here are five things to-do on your vacation!

Dolphin experiences take place four times a day at Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa. It’s something your family won’t want to miss!
- Selvatica – Rated as the #1 Tourist Attraction in Mexico, Selvatica is an extreme canopy adventure with 12 of the longest and fastest zip lines in North America. Feel a sense of accomplishment as you zip through the tree tops and take in the beauty of the surrounding area. Once the tour is finished, cool off with a refreshing dip in a natural cenote on property, then finish the day off with a traditional Mexican lunch.

Leisurely stroll the 200 acre park and visit the beautiful wildlife displays, swim in the underground river or enjoy the phenomenal shows and entertainment.

You can shop for everything from crafts to expensive silver, interesting art, rum and the even the latest clothing trends from Europe. There are also a number of bars along 5th Ave making it a great place to grab drinks with friends or go dancing after the sun goes down.

Cancun to Tulum, Quicker than Ever!
Now, visitors can enjoy more time at resort and less time on the road with the new Playa del Carmen bypass bridge! The 16-mile long bypass, which was just inaugurated earlier this week, starts at Cancun and ends in Tulum, intersecting with the existing highway just south of the airport.
The new bridge will alleviate traffic through Playa del Carmen, decrease congestion around Tulum’s town center, and will also benefit the environment by ameliorating air and sound quality along the Riviera Maya. Additionally, it cuts out traffic lights and speed bumps through Playa del Carmen, making for a quicker trip to Puerto Aventuras and Tulum. This shaves off 20 minutes of travel time (30-35 minutes in heavy traffic) from the airport to Dreams Tulum and Dreams Puerto Aventuras. Now that these destinations are more accessible, our guests can arrive sooner and stay longer than ever!
Bloggers Meet Up in Mexico
Dreams Resorts & Spas has teamed up with the Mexico Tourism Board to organize a retreat for influential family and travel bloggers to experience the beauty and excitement that Mexico has to offer. Dreams Riviera Cancun will be providing the luxurious accommodations for everyone attending the event. From our Unlimited-Luxury® privileges to those extra little touches, we are excited to help make this event truly memorable for all of the participants.
The Bloggers Meet Up kicks off on Wednesday, May 18th with a cocktail party hosted by Dreams Riviera Cancun. There will be plenty of delicious cocktails, gourmet dishes and music to get the party started!
The Mexico Tourism Board has helped us arrange an exciting line-up of activities for the bloggers, including a Canopy and Cenote Tour, a night on the town in Playa del Carmen and an excursion to Xcaret. Event attendees will also have the opportunity to partake in a LIVE on-site Travelers’ Night In (TNI) discussion on Thursday May 19, 2011. If you are not already familiar with TNI, it is a weekly travel discussion organized by Zip Set Go and is considered the largest, live online travel chat with an average of 500 participants each week.
Of course the bloggers will have plenty of down time to enjoy all of the amenities that Dreams Riviera Cancun has to offer! To wrap up the trip, our sister resort Secrets Silversands will host a dinner party on Friday evening, giving our guests one last night of fun before departing for home in the morning.
We plan to update the tweet and update throughout the Bloggers Meet Up using the hashtag #MexDreams, so stay tuned for all the details. You can follow @DreamsResorts for updates from the resort and @TravelistaTara and @LisaJanPa who will be providing an insider’s perspective throughout the trip.
