Now Resorts & Spas are about escaping the everyday. And savoring every moment. So that’s exactly what we did this Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving at Now Resorts & Spas began with a favorite tradition of ours, the telecast of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade! Throughout the day the children who stayed with us had a blast enjoying a full schedule of events including turkey calling, arts & crafts and history lessons with the Pilgrims. And of course we had all the football games broadcast throughout the day and into the evening. As night settled in, we brought out the best part, a huge Thanksgiving feast prepared by our world-class chefs. All the trimmings were included. From pumpkin pie and cranberries to turkey and stuffing, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
One of the best parts of any vacation is getting to experience the unique and exciting cultures of another country! At Now Jade Riviera Cancun, one of our very favorite activities we offer our guests is our tequila tasting!
Set along 2,600 feet of pure crystal white sand and refreshing azure waters, combining understated sophistication with Unlimited-Luxury® amenities, Now Jade Riviera Cancun offers the perfect escape for couples, families and friends.
Are your teens worried about their family vacation turning into a bore? Cast those worries aside! Now Larimar Punta Cana is a playful paradise for the whole family – especially for teens! Guests age 13 to 17 can cut loose and have the time of their lives at the Core Zone Teens Club.

Water sports include sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, water aerobics, water polo and even snorkeling, deep sea fishing and scuba diving* for those looking to explore all the beautiful Caribbean Sea has to offer.

Experiencing cenotes should be on everyone’s bucket list. These incredible geological formations, unique to the Yucatan peninsula, are formed over many years when rainwater dissolves limestone, resulting in flooded caverns. Erosion causes these water-filled caves to collapse, revealing beautiful and mysterious cenotes to the outside world!

Visitors to Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun can experience four different kinds of cenotes in natural surroundings with a tour from Xenotes Oasis Maya. The tour takes visitors to an oasis in the middle of the jungle where they kayak, rappel, snorkel and zipline to explore the different types of cenotes.

Cenotes were considered a source of life for ancient Mayans. Cenotes provided them with water, and also represented an entrance to the other world. Guests on the Xenotes Oasis Maya tour will also learn all about these fascinating Mayan legends and the Aluxes, Mayan legendary guardians of the jungle.
