Entertaining Guest Outside Of Resort.

Recommended Posts

Chichen Itza is a grand excursion, but it is an all day event so some of your guests may not be up for it. The Tulum archaeological site is closer and can be done in half a day, a good idea for those whose guests may want to return early to the resort. 

 

Xelha and other ecoparks are fantastic, but most likely your group would not stay together. If "bonding" and sharing the experience are important, you might look at private tours of some of the smaller cenote parks where you can keep the clan together, Aktunchen and Hidden Worlds come to mind. Xoximilco is a fun night experience, "trajineras" are specialized boats that do a canal circuit, guests are served authentic Mexican dishes, there is live music, games on board and lots of tequila. Your resort may be able to offer a private group tour on a catamaran or snorkeling excursion, always worth asking your coordinator for guidance too as so many hotels have in house tours that may end up being more economical.

 

If your guests have a mixed bunch of tastes, sometimes you may offer a couple of options, ie, golf outing for some, archaeological site for others, snorkeling trip for the rest. I do like the idea of doing something as a group though, makes the experience something special. There are SO many options that it can be tough to decide, I would measure your group's interests (and your own of course, it should reflect your taste!) and narrow down the list.

 

Have fun planning!!

@@beckys98 & @racht33 - I think we did the exact same tour in 2010 (Coba, Mayan village & cenote), but unfortunately I don't know the name of the company either :(

 

I've also done a tour with this organization: http://www.siankaantours.org/en/cont/tours/(Looks like I did a combo of the Muyil Forest & Float and Sian Ka'an Ancient Canal.) I loved floating down the canal and the lunch was delicious. I think they may only be able to handle smaller groups, but it might be worth checking out.

 

@@Smellsey - I haven't started researching any catamaran options, so if you could send your list, that would give me a great head start. Thank you!

 

Anyone who is planning an excursion and planning to also pick up the costs, are you also doing OOT bags, or is the excursion your "thank you" to your guests for coming?

i thinking the bags and the excursion. Just minimal with the items in the bag. I think people will enjoy the thought of you paying for something for them to  do versus little items in the bag that some may have already packed.

There's a great local tour company called "2 Amigos" that have tour + dinner cruise options your guests may really enjoy!!!

They're focused on making your vacation fun and easy to plan, and have been living, exploring and touring around Cancun and the Mayan Riviera for the last 10 years.

 

They pride themselves in knowing all of the best spots, and are definitely worth checking out! 

Hope you find the perfect entertainment for your group of guests - cheers!!! team MTM :)

We are buying a catamaran for everyone. I have reached out to several vendors and received quotes on a bunch if you want me to send you the document I made. We are paying for everyone but this is our thank/welcome gift. I think it is fair if you do not want to or can't afford to pay. I would suggest perhaps they pay for their trip - but you can pay for the open bar/food portion? sometimes the trip can be like $40 a person and then the food is $15 pp

please i am interested as well. can you please email me the info at oiwuora@@gmail.com? Thanks

Tulum was really a magical place that you will surely love. Coba is also a great choice.
 

I'm surprised there was no mention of a day trip to Isla Mujeres or Cozumel. There are plenty of activities you can do in both.
In Cozumel there are another set of pyramids to visit, you can rent scooters and go around the island, have an ice-cream while you walk around the town.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
