Apple Vacations and Iberostar Hotels and Resorts were delighted to host the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders and staff this month for the making of their 2015/2016 swimsuit calendar.

Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar provided a picture perfect backdrop. Palm trees, crystal blue water, white sandy beaches and the beauty of Mexico  shined throughout the shoot.

When not filming, the cheerleaders also participated in games and events with the resort guests.  We can’t wait to see the completed calendar. Meanwhile, here are some sneak peaks of the shoot and some behind the scenes photos.

Go Eagles!

We are so sure we checked it twice. You get the idea?

Say Hello to Summer with Dreams Tulum & Apple Vacations

Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa

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.

Here are some of my favorite things about the resort:

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!
