Hi all,

 

Just hoping you could look this over and let me know whether the info looks right and/or whether we've forgotten anything! I think we've been staring at it for so long that we've lost all perspective. =)

 

Any input much appreciated!!

It looks great! That reminds me I needed to get some eco friendly sunscreen. I wanted to buy some for everyone, but it was pricey. Now the snorkeling trip will be in a cenote so I don't think we'd need to worry about it. It that right? It's just about coral isn't it?

 

Our guests are only staying 3nights so I don't think anyone else will have time to snorkel in the ocean. I'll get a bottle for us & another to share incase someone is snorkeling.

Thanks for the feedback!

 

I wanted to get eco-friendly sunscreen for everyone too, but was having the same affordability issues. I was considering buying a box of individual packets through smartshield.com and just placing a couple in each OOT bag in order to make sure they have at least one or two applications.

 

As for cenotes versus ocean snorkeling, that's a good question. Cenotes are part of a vast underground network of rivers, and all that freshwater does run straight to the ocean so all the chemicals travel. But the nice thing about cenotes is that they're often quite shady, so sunscreen might not be as necessary. In fact, I've often used (and recommended) just an extra-large t-shirt to cover backs and shoulders--the areas most exposed when snorkeling.

 

Funny that your guests might not do any ocean swimming. That's always the first thing I do when I get to a seaside hotel: drop all luggage, throw on swimsuit, and walk-almost-run to the water. =)

they will definitly swim in the ocean. I guess I thought the sunscreen was just for snorkeling because you were getting closer to the coral. I've never read to use it when you just get in the ocean. I guess I will need to look some stuff up.

the cenotes will be right after the coba trip so we'll definitly be wearing sunscreen all day.

LOL. Good question, but we were actually going Shakespearean. (That'll teach us!)

From dictionary.com:
verb (used without object)
1.to hasten; speed; go in haste.
–verb (used with object)
2.to hasten (oneself): Hie yourself down to this once-in-a-lifetime sale!

    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
