Throughout their stay, guests at Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort & Spa get to experience Unlimited-Luxury® in every form from gourmet meals and unlimited premium beverages to 24-hour room services and live nightly entertainment. However, just a few miles down the road in the traditional Mayan community of San Juan de Dios, there are many children who aren’t so fortunate. This is our call to you to help us make a difference in the lives of these kids—all you have to do is leave a little room in your suitcase between the suntan lotion and swim trunks!
We are asking for all guests traveling to Dreams Puerto Aventuras to participate in our annual Toy Drive by bringing a new toy to donate (one that doesn’t require batteries) before April 30, 2014, or as it is known in Mexico, the Day of the Child. We will be delivering all received toys to the children in San Juan de Dios and, as you can see in the photos from last year’s Toy Drive, the joy these toys brings them is immeasurable.
San Juan de Dios, located near the archaeological site of Tulum, is truly a step back in time. The people are traditional in their Mayan beliefs and customs. They still retain the Mayan language and even participate in Mayan festivals that date back to more than a thousand years ago. About 350 children reside in this modest community, where the main source of income is artisanal honey production. Dreams Puerto Aventuras has this special honey available for sale within our gift shop in order to support this community.
We’re counting on our fans to help us make this year’s Toy Drive our best ever! Spread the word to any family or friends that might be taking a trip to Dreams Puerto Aventuras this spring and on social media as well using the hashtag #ToyDriveDPA. We appreciate the help and can’t wait to see all the happy, smiling faces at this year’s Day of the Child!
