Turned A Corner
(DETM June Newsletter)
Dear Dave,
It was wonderful to do my first trade shows in over 2 years and see some great agents in person!  I'm cautiously optimistic that we have turned a corner for the return to travel.
Thank you to Spoiled Agent for hosting 2 creative and outside venues (drive-in theatres) near Langley and Calgary last month. 
In spite of the rain in Langley and the strong winds and play-off hockey game for Calgary, the best agents turned out to support Spoiled Agent and some of their favourite suppliers!

Here are my top 10 favourite things about the 3 El Cid properties in the Riviera Maya (Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort. Ventus at Marina El Cid & the Ventus Ha' at Marina El Cid).
1. 3 RESORTS IN 1 - The guests at all 3 properties have FULL access to all of the facilities at all 3.
2. LOCATION - All the properties are conveniently located in Puerto Morelos - only 20 minutes from the CUN airport - guests won't have to ride for up to 2 hours to get to their Riviera Maya property.
3. DINING & DRINKING - There are 7 a la carte restaurants, and numerous snack bars, and beverage bars between the 3 properties.
4. ADULTS-ONLY AREA - There is a great adults-only infinity pool and large hot tub at the Ventus property.   
5. FAMILY FRIENDLY – All 3 properties are family friendly!. The resorts feature a great kids club and teen's club, both with long hours (open at least until 9 pm)!
6. FAMILY ROOMS - Also, all 3 properties have "family rooms" that hold up to 5 people.
7. MARINA - We do have our own marina, to the south of the property, for convenient access to some great water excursions.
8. PLATINUM PLAN - The Platinum plan, an up-sell program guaranteeing an OV room (or sunset view in the Ventus Ha’), special lounges, a butler, etc. is available right through the tour operator partners.
9. 1, 2 AND 3 BEDROOM SUITES – All 3 properties have 2 and 3 bedroom suites.
10. SOMETHING NEW - The Ventus Ha’ property is El Cid's newest property, having opened last November.
The sea turtle nesting season has begun in Cancun. The Krystal Cancun has once again joined the Sea Turtle Protection and Conservation Program. Therefore, guests are reminded of the following recommendations during their visit to the beach:
bullet Avoid pointing flashlights or lights at turtles
bullet Do not approach closer that 1.5 meters
bullet Do not take pictures, as it could stun them
bullet If you notice any illegal acts, report them to 911
You can see a 2 minute video of the Krystal Cancun HERE.
Culture is a vital part of an ever-changing society and civilization. Incorporating one or more cultural activities in your trip is a great opportunity to deepen the discovery of a country, while helping to safeguard a whole section of the local culture. Realistic Asia excels at providing cultural and local experience for our mutual clients. Read more about them HERE
First, Think - Second, Believe - Third, Dream and finally, Dare.
