Yes. One of the reasons we originally chose Panama Jack Playa del Carmen is its unique proximity to the ocean, but its idyllic location has brought a full set of unexpected challenges from Mother Nature. The hurricanes of 2020 coupled with rising global sea levels have caused a good portion of their beach to slip into the sea over the last several months. Although the efforts to save their beach have been Herculean, we were recently informed there’s simply no way that restoration work will be completed by our event in October.
With that news and recognizing how important the beach is to the VACAYA experience, the company that manages Panama Jack, Playa Hotels & Resorts, has shifted us over to one of their other properties. Our contracts with resorts allow them to substitute a sister property of equal or better quality for a host of reasons, but we’ll be honest… for as long as we’ve all been in this business, “loss of beach” is a new one for us.
“Better quality” is an understatement in regard to the substitute hotel they offered us – the new Hyatt Ziva Riviera Cancun, which opens in September. It’s a bit like winning the lottery. We’re now getting an experience much closer to UNICO quality (for those who traveled with us there in 2019 or 2020) at Panama Jack pricing, which is substantially less.
VACAYA’s partnership with Hyatt Ziva delivers Halloween & Day of the Dead like you’ve never experienced it before.
Hyatt Ziva combines the best sun-kissed beach with close proximity to Cancun and Playa del Carmen. The resort delivers affordability, proximity to adventure, and cultural immersion.
