Welcome to the Explorer’s Club!

There’s nothing like having time to relax and the fun, new experiences of a vacation to bring family together. However, sometimes parents need some alone time to bond on their own! That’s where the Now Resorts & Spas Explorer’s Club comes in. Kids between the ages of 3-12 can have the time of their lives at the Explorer’s Club, which is completely supervised by American Red Cross certified staff and open daily until long after the sun goes down, allowing parents ample time to relax without any worries.

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.
