Take Me to the River – Hacienda Tres Rios

I hear the Talking Heads, "Take Me to the River" (click on the link, if you would like to hear the tune) in my head as I head to Hacienda Tres Rios (Tres Rios means 3 Rivers), in the Riviera Maya this week.

Over the past year I have developed a friendship on twitter with @TresRiosResort. We are very excited to be their guests this weekend and to share with you our adventures! Our itinerary is jam packed with all kinds of new experiences.

Hacienda Tres Rio was bestowed the honor of The Most Sustainable Resort Worldwide last weekend by  Green Globe International. It is a luxury all inclusive resort located about 45 minutes from the Cancun International Airport. Hacienda Tres Rios has 273 spacious suites surrounded by the 326 acre eocological  Tres Rios Nature Park with 1 mile of pristine beachfront. There are 3 rivers( as the name suggests), lush mangroves, 10 cenotes (natural wells) and much flora and fauna to be explored. The Hacienda boasts a 13,900 sq. ft spa and fitness center.  With 8 dining venues and 5 bars, we will surely find plenty of culinary delights to enjoy!

 I have my cell phone plan changed to allow me to tweet you our adventures. I am hoping it works this time, I had problems last year. If all else fails, there is wifi access in my suite.

 Here is what we have in store for us:
