Riviera Maya Dreaming
Updated: May 23, 2020
I thought I would let my mom, Pat Eck open up this blog as she is the one that came up with the name of our new business venture in Riviera Maya. Through her writings you'll easily see why she came up with our name... "Dream Scene Villas, Inc."
"Dream Scene is a perfect description of this particular part of the Mayan Riviera. The first time I visited this area, I was in absolute awe. I kept feeling that I needed to pinch myself to make sure that I wasn’t just dreaming about the fantastically beautiful surroundings and the sense of complete peace.
My first stay was at the Grand Sirenis Resort, which is but a short walk from the accommodations now being offered to the public at Dream Scene Villa (due to open October 2020 and owned by my very own daughter and son-in-law). Picture lush greenery, fragrant tropical flowers, breath-taking white sand beaches, azure-blue skies, and aqua-marine seascapes.
Besides all of the fantastic visual sights in the immediate location, there are countless other adventures beckoning you to take advantage of. Xcaret Parks like Xcaret, Xplor, Xel-ha and Xsenses are some of the most unbelievable tourist attractions nearby, offering swimming in warm underground streams, hiking through mystical caves, interacting with dolphins, zip-lining above a jungle canopy, driving through tropical forests in a jeep, mingling with sea turtles, iguanas, coatis, manatees, exotic birds and butterflies. Talk about dreaming! It is unreal.
Not only are the sights and sounds exhilarating, numerous restaurants on the resort grounds offer a multitude of culinary specialties which make you feel you are on a trip around the world. One night, you swear you are in France enjoying fine French cuisine. Another time, you find yourself in a Japan participating in a Teppanyaki and trying different foods. You can move on to Italy, Mexico, the United States. You name it! It’s all there close at hand to sample. Your taste buds will enjoy extreme adventure, as well.
I could go on and on. There are Mayan ruins to visit, live theater productions to learn more about the Mayan culture, musical productions, and many tours offered. Is it any wonder that after spending seven days in the area, I didn’t want to go home. The next year, I went back for two weeks. Now, I want my “Dream Scene” every year. It is utter paradise!" Pat Eck
