Mayan-themed Events at Now Jade and Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun

The year of the Maya is upon us! Since December 21, 2012 marks a special day for the Mayans, a day in which they believe the world would be reborn, Now Jade and Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun are celebrating by embracing their cultural roots. Marking this significant year in Mayan culture the resorts are planning daily activities designed to introduce guests to Mayan history and culture and, of course, entertain guests staying with us from November 22 to December 21! 

This month-long celebration includes a classic Mayan buffet dinner on the beach complete with specialties such as spiced hot cocoa and empanadas, Mayan fire shows, stargazing events, Mayan-style cooking classes and much more.  Guests of Now Sapphire can even experience an ancient ritual at the spa, Temazcal.  This healing ritual will leave the participants “reborn” spiritually by releasing the mind, body and soul of stresses and toxins. Visit the Spa by Pevonia at Now Sapphire to book an appointment for this special treatment.

Our Explorer’s Clubs for Kids at Now Jade and Now Sapphire are planning exciting Mayan-themed activities and arts and crafts too. Teenagers staying at Now Sapphire can also enjoy special events at the Core Zone Teens Club! Each resort will have its own schedule, so be sure to ask your concierge for the schedule upon your arrival at the resorts. All of the special Mayan events are included in your  Unlimited-Luxury® experience!

Explorer’s Club at Now Larimar

One of our favorite features of Now Larimar Punta Cana is our fantastic Explorer’s Club for kids, which is included as part of our Unlimited-Luxury® privileges. The Explorer’s Club is a fully supervised children’s program with arts & crafts, games, playground area, indoor game room with TV, video games, weekly camp out adventures, big screen movies on the beach and more.

The Explorer’s Club is open from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm for kids from 3 to 12 years old, giving parents some well-deserved time of their own! Children have the opportunity to make friends from around the world, while parents have the opportunity to reconnect with one another during their stay with us. And no worries, because the entire Explorer’s Club staff is certified in both CPR and First Aid! Plus, parents receive a beeper should they be needed for any reason.

Here’s a look at our Explorer’s Club and some of the activities we offer for the kids at our resort!

Vacation is a Time for Mom and Dad Too!

When you’re vacationing with your children, it can be easy to get caught up in all of the excitement and forget to set time aside for you and your spouse. Although you may have initially chosen Now Resorts & Spas because of all of the activities and amenities we offer for children, there are many ways for couples to relax and reconnect with each other too.

So you’re probably wondering how this is even possible. As part of our Unlimited-Luxury® privileges, we offer the Explorer’s Club for children ages 3-12. The Explorer’s Club includes exciting activities and adventures that your children will love and is fully supervised by professionals who are certified in CPR and First Aid. If you interested in other childcare options, talk to the resort concierge for details on our babysitting services.

Now that you finally have some alone time with your significant other, a whole new kind of fun can begin! Wondering what you can do? Book a couples massage at our spa, take a walk along the beach, make reservations for a private romantic dinner or simply order room service and enjoy the peace and quiet!

However you choose to spend your alone time at our resort, we’re sure it will be memorable. And don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to splash in the pool and play in the sand with your children –- that is if you can get them to leave the Explorer’s Club!

Introducing…Sunny the Turtle!

Are you planning a family vacation to Now Jade Riviera Cancun? If so, we can’t wait to introduce your children to Sunny the Turtle, our Explorer’s Club “mascot”!

What better way to kick off your vacation than having your children greeted by Sunny the Turtle upon arrival! Our friendly mascot brings smiles and laughter to many of the children who stay at our resort. He is usually dressed up to match the event of the week and loves to have his picture taken with our guests!

Check out these fun pictures of Sunny the Turtle!

Towel Art at Now Jade

At Now Jade Riviera Cancun, we love leaving little surprises in the rooms for our guests. Our staff is trained in the art of towel origami, so often times there will be swans, monkeys, elephants and other fun towel animals to greet our guests when they return to their room for the night.

Of course these towel animals are a huge hit with children, so we thought it would be fun to offer an interactive towel art class just for kids. The class is a great way for children to learn how to make a variety of towel creatures, which is sure to impress their family and friends back home.

Take a look at some pictures from a recent children’s towel art class at the Explorer’s Club at Now Jade:

Camping on the Beach at Now Sapphire

We recently hosted a camping and movie night on the beach for the kids staying at Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun! This event is just one of the many activities included as part the Unlimited-Luxury® privileges offered at our resort. The kids enjoyed yummy snack food and a live performance by Mystic Drumz before the movie. It was truly a fun night for everyone who attended, although we think the parents might have enjoyed the night off even more than the kids!

Now Playing at Now Resorts & Spas: Explorer’s Movie Nights!

Various nights throughout the week, the Explorer’s Clubs at Now Resorts & Spas host a movie night especially for the children staying at the resort.  The resort staff turns the Explorer’s Club into a “Kids Theatre” with a real box office, movie tickets, and snack counter.

Upon arrival, the children are greeted by the movie ushers (Explorer’s Club team) and treated to a fun filled evening featuring the latest box office releases. Children are given tickets to the show and enough play money to stock up on their favorite movie snacks at the candy counter. They can choose from popcorn, nachos, soda, or candy and more.

Not only do the children love this fun activity, but Mom & Dad won’t have to feel guilty about a special romantic evening without the kids.  Check out some pictures from a recent movie showing!
