Say Hello to Summer with Dreams Tulum & Apple Vacations

Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa

OK parents…it’s final exam time…then field day…then IT is coming…the inevitable last day of school! I am actually looking forward to it! I’m planning our summer fun, including our summer family vacation!

Like many, I have narrowed down a week and am deciding on location. Last year we went on a great vacation to Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa with friends and family. We were going for a little bit longer of a stay, so we decided to venture down further in the Riviera Maya corridor to Tulum.

I stayed at Dreams Tulum many years ago, when it first opened, and wow — it’s great and perfect for groups and families!

Dreams Tulum does not require wristbands, dining reservations or towel cards, like other AMResorts. I’ve mentioned before how that makes life easier when travelling with a family. You don’t have to be on a dining schedule or worry about losing extra items.

#FlyEaglesFly with Apple Vacations

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Apple Vacations and Iberostar Hotels & Resorts were happy to participate in The Philadelphia Eagles Women’s Academy this past weekend.

For the event, 200 ladies, including some of our top travel agent partners, had a fun day of exclusive behind-the-scenes tours, training sessions, lunch and even some time on the field. Everyone can punt, pass and run a little bit better after instruction from current Eagles DeMeco Ryans and Brent Celek, along with alumni, Ike Reese and Jon Runyan.

Also, this past weekend, the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders landed at Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar to film their 2015/2016 calendar. Around 60 Eagles cheerleaders, staff and the Eagles Television Network are in resort filming for the week.

We’ll share more on this later in the week.

Apple Vacations and Iberostar Hotels & Resorts are proud to be working with the Eagles on many exciting events for the 2015-2016 season. Go Eagles!

Welcome to June! The month of Weddings, Weddings, Weddings!

Winter is officially over.

The weather is nice (but not too hot) and it is one of the most popular times of year for weddings and honeymoons. With so many choices of both destinations and resorts in the “Adults Only” category, I wanted to share two of my absolute favorites for destination weddings and honeymoons.

Now Jade Resort & Spa

Now Jade Resort & Spa

Many families are in the process of booking their summer getaways and are deciding where to go. Over the next few weeks we will feature some of our favorite family vacation resorts, to help you make your decision.

One of my favorite resorts my family visits over and over is Now Jade Riviera Cancun (if you read the blog often, you may already know this). My family loves Mexico for the white sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters, history, culture and charm. I am a creature of habit and we tend to go back to Mexico often.

As I write this, I’m dreaming of sitting under a palapa with my toes in the sand.

Here are my top 5 reasons why Now Jade Riviera Cancun makes a great family vacation (which you can’t necessarily find in a brochure or on a website):
