Cancun, Cozumel, Riviera Maya Time Change

Cancun Time Change

Apple Vacations has received notice that on Feb. 1, 2015 at 2 a.m., the state of Quintana Roo, which includes Cancun, Cozumel and Riviera Maya, will change clocks to Eastern Standard Time Zone.

Local time in destination for all arriving and departing flights will move forward one hour. Departure and arrival times in the US will not be affected.

The change does not apply to the rest of Mexico nor to the state of Yucatan.

Apple Vacations and the airlines are in the process of making adjustments to flight times in their systems to reflect this change. In the meantime, Apple Vacationers should confirm their return hotel transfer and departure flight time with their local Apple Vacations Representative in resort.

Crystal Agent Retreat to #Unstoppable Los Cabos

Apple Vacations hosted their annual Crystal Agency Retreat in Los Cabos, Mexico from November 12th through 15th at Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Resort & Spa.

In addition to celebrating the accomplishments of the top producing agencies, the retreat encouraged agents in attendance to get out and explore Los Cabos, experience the destination and see first-hand the ongoing recovery efforts post Hurricane Odile.

As one agent was overheard saying, “Los Cabos is an ideal destination.  There’s no damage here that would prevent someone from having a great vacation”.

We couldn’t agree more. Los Cabos is #Unstoppable.
