Day 3
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2021
DAY OF THE DEAD

Today is hands down the most special day of our week here in Mexico. It’s Día de los Muertos (or Day of the Dead), Mexico’s celebrated holiday for those who’ve moved on to the spiritual world. It’s a day like no other in the world and we’ll celebrate it authentically with our Mexican brothers and sisters both here at the resort and in the Cancun City Center. “¡Hay más tiempo que vida!” (“There is more time than life!”). Our first V-Dance of the week takes place this afternoon, but it’s not like any you’ve seen before. Expect the unexpected!

Day 4
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2021
THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES

We’ve reached the midpoint of our time here in Mexico and the choices for today abound! Will you take advantage of one of the excursions and head off to the Mayan Ruins to explore the ancient sites? Or will you explore the crystal-clear waters of Xcaret, a water themed eco-archaeological park? Or are you looking to expand your friend circle through one of our planned social mixers? Here, you literally can have it all!

Day 5
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2021
THE SPA & 5Th AVENUE SHOPS CALL

The Riviera Maya sun shines brightly today as everyone settles in to Hyatt Ziva powered by VACAYA. Is today the day you finally experience the spa’s pampering treatments? Or are you looking to explore the region today? Can’t decide? We don’t blame you. There’s so much to see and do!

Day 6
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2021
SUN’S OUT! BUNS OUT!

Feeling adventurous? Want to avoid tan lines and a sand-filled swimsuit? Why not go au natural at our clothing optional pool on The Strip powered by JustFor.Fans? If being naked isn’t your definition of utopia (and we totally understand if it’s not), maybe try a little volleyball on the beach. Or how about a Mexican cuisine cooking class? No matter your “state of dress” preference for the afternoon, we’ve got something to “suit” just about everyone! After a fun dinner at one of the resort’s 10 restaurants, don’t miss the chance to dance the night away!

Day 7
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2021
RELAX. REFRESH. REJUVENATE.

Where does the time go? Hilton Ziva’s inclusions, adventure, rejuvenation, and connections are waiting to be discovered around every corner. No matter your choice, you’ve entered UTOPIA and it’ll be hard to say goodbye… guaranteed. Our last V-Dance of the week takes place this afternoon and we can’t wait to see you there!

Day 8
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2021
CHECK OUT

Parting is such sweet sorrow. Our time here in Mexico officially comes to an end today. Many of you will, of course, extend your stay here at Hilton Ziva and other hotels in the area, while others will return home today. Whether you stay or go, we wish you only the safest of journeys.

*Wasn’t this program originally at Panama Jack Playa del Carmen?

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.

Don’t miss out on this incredible luxury vacation at the best prices you’ll find anywhere!  You know what to do…
