Guest Blog: Celebrate Mexico and Ponte el Penacho!

We’re proud to present a guest blog by Zuko Garcia, part of the Now Resorts & Spas social media team and proud citizen of Mexico.

With Mexican Independence Day this month, the well-known eco touristic park Xcaret Park had launched a campaign called #PonteElPenacho or wear the head dressing. This invites Mexicans to share their pride of belonging to this colorful nation called México!

Con motivo del mes patrio el reconocido parque ecoturístico Xcaret Park ha lanzado la campaña #PonteElPenacho. Que invita a los mexicanos a compartir el orgullo de pertenecer a esta nación llena de color llamada México.

En Now Resorts & Spas estamos muy orgullosos de todo el talento mexicano que forma parte de nuestro equipo a lo largo de la organización. Desde nuestros más altos directivos, hasta gran parte de aquellos que pertenecen a niveles gerenciales y colaboradores de nuestros hermosos hoteles. ¡Estamos tan orgullosos de nuestra familia mexicana que hemos decidido ponernos el penacho también!

From the directors to a big part of our management teams to the staff members of our beautiful resorts. We’re so proud of our Mexican family that we’re going to wear out head dressing too!

Yo soy mexicana y entre las muchas cosas que me hacen sentir orgullosa de mi país: la pasión con la que hacemos las cosas, la exquisita gastronomía mexicana, el buen humor (tanto en las buenas como en las malas) y la calidez de nuestra gente. La lista es larga, pero prefiero parar ahí y preguntarte ¿Qué te enorgullece de México?

I am Mexican and there are many things that make me feel proud of my country: the passion we bring to the things we do, the exquisite Mexican gastronomy, our good humor (even in bad situation) and the warmth of our people. My list is long but what makes you feel proud about Mexico?

Visit us on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what makes you feel proud about Mexico! And don’t forget to #PonteElPenacho!

Celebrate Mexican Independence Day

In the early morning of September 16th 1810 a church bell in Dolores, Guanajuato rang out, gathering all the towns’ people. A priest named Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla wanted to gather the people of Mexico to rise against the Spanish crown. It took another 11 years for Mexico to gain independence but this event, known as the Grito de Dolores, was the spark that began it all.

Today the biggest celebration happens in Mexico City where at 11 p.m. on the night of the 15th the President steps out on to the balcony of the National Palace overlooking a massive crowd in the decorated courtyard. There he rings a similar bell to the one once used by Hidalgo and comments on the historical Heroes of Mexico ending with an enthusiastic “Viva Mexico!”

  • Is this date available?
    savethedate

    September looks like a great month for romance at Now Jade!

    • Check the calendar! The calendar is your guide to any all questions about the dates you have in mind. Remember to actually reserve a date for your wedding you must speak to a wedding coordinator! This calendar is the perfect place to start your journey toward a wedding at Now Resorts & Spas. You can find each resorts calendar on its individual wedding page!
  • What does partially available mean?
    • You might notice on the calendar some dates are marked as ‘partially available.’ What this means is that on those dates there is another wedding scheduled. What it also means is our staff is the best and trained to make every wedding special and private. Your wedding coordinator is just that, yours! They are there to focus on you so you can focus on the big day.
  • How many days do I need to arrive in the country beforehand?
    • It all depends where you’re planning to say ‘I do!’ For ceremonies in Mexico, you must arrive 4 business days prior to the wedding. Your arrival day does not count towards the four days. In the Dominican Republic, you must arrive at least 3 business days prior to the wedding. Couples use that time to meet with their wedding coordinator and hammer out the final details! For those interested in a symbolic ceremony the time frame is more flexible. Talk to your wedding coordinator for more information!

Now that you have all the tools is time to start planning! Head to our Pinterest and get inspired! Check out Now Amber Puerto Vallarata, Now Jade Riviera Cancun, Now Larimar Punta Cana and Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun!
