    Visiting Grand Oasis Viva in June 2014???

    Looking for people who are going to Grand Oasis Viva the same time as you? Post your dates here and also add them to the Cancuncare Calendar.

    Splashing out on new sexy swimwear or evening wear? Maybe you're looking to buy a costume for the theme nights? Please check out these ultra sexy outlets.

    If you still haven't booked your airport transfer be sure to do so.

    About roll calls:
    - Once we have a few people I'll update the list in date order with your usernames, dates and avatar.
    - Updates are every so often, infrequently to start and more frequent as we get closer.
    - If you post your dates the roll call doesn't automatically update with your pic and dates - I have to add this manually.
    - Please don't email me to ask to be added to the list, I can't add everyone individually or I'd get nothing else done - just make sure you've posted your dates in the thread and I'll catch it
    - If you change your avatar picture it will disappear from the list, as a new file will be created and the old one auto deleted.
    - If you don't have a picture next to your name and would like one please see Adding pictures
    -If there is a question mark beside your dates, it means I wasn't clear what your exact dates are. Please let me know in the thread and I'll update next time.

    Any posts after this will be added onto the next updated roll call.

    Tourism Board Press Release
    I just saw this press release, it was give to me by a friend of mine in the travel industry. Could put a kink in this Aprils (and beyond) vacation plans. Big changes ahead :(

    April 1, 2014
    During a meeting held on Wednesday March 19th, the Greater Cancun Hotel and Tourism Board considered a resolution to revise regulations pertaining to mass tourism and specifically the sale of alcohol and public decency. The states of Quintana Roo, Yucatán and Campeche have long held that the region of the Yucatán Peninsula is a significant cultural resource. As such a plan was developed to help regulate the regional market as well as to tailor a long term development plan concentrating on ensuring that this region of Mexico, renowned for its natural beauty and indigenous Mayan culture is primed to become the premier family friendly tourist destination for coming generations.

    The proposal which was accepted by a vote of 115 – 87 places Cancun and the Rivera Maya at the leading edge of this exciting new era in Mexican tourism. There will be some changes that the returning tourist may notice. While minor we are certain that you will enjoy the new and improved Yucatán tourism experience.

    What’s new:
    - Enhanced public transportation: In order to continue to deliver a first rate public transportation system, all tourists will be charged a fee of 50 USD per week equivalent for access to public transport busses in the city of Cancun as well as Playa Del Carmen and on the Island of Cozumel. Monies collected are earmarked to purchase a new state of the art bicycle fleet to benefit everyone.
    - Cancun International Airport: A new 30 km long monorail will be constructed to reach most points in the Hotel Zone. This is a large construction project, however an aggressive construction schedule means that it should be complete in less than 5 years.
    - Liquor regulation: Long term studies identified that many families choose other locations to vacation in because of extremely late open service hours or all inclusive pricing. As a result these practices will no longer be permitted in the localities of Cancun, Riviera Maya and Cozumel.
    o Establishments are now required to end the service of alcohol at 1:00 am
    o All liquor serving establishments must end shows and close by 2:00 am except by special event permit.
    o Hotels are no longer permitted to offer all inclusive liquor service
    o Liquor prices are now required by law to sell at regulated prices, the minimum price as allowed by law is $50 pesos per drink (1oz. liquor, 16 oz. beer, 12 oz. glass of wine)
    o Private liquor sales are only to occur in government owned and operated stores. These will be open from 12:00 to 17:00 each day to the general public.
    o Liquor prices at approved retail locations are subject to a 20% improvement tax
    - Renewed focus on public decency
    o Establishments that currently allow topless or clothing optional services will no longer be permitted to operate under those conditions.
     Government inspectors have been instructed to cite both the tourist and business owner with no warnings given.
    • Tourist - $500 USD per violation, or one night in a municipal jail
    • Business - $50,000 MXP per occurrence, food services / liquor licences will be suspended after 3 documented occurrences
    - All boats operating more than 500 feet from shore are required to have all passengers wearing approved life preservers as well as adhering to the liquor and decency regulations noted above.
    - This is an April fools joke
    - All hotels are required by law to allow children, promoting family tourism.
    - A $100 USD environmental improvement levy shall be applied upon exiting the country. Failure to pay may result in additional fines or incarceration.
    We recognize that these new regulations may negatively impact the vacation experience for some. As a result until the end of 2014 select bars will be permitted to be open until 02:30 on Friday and Saturday nights, in addition the exit levy shall be reduced to $50 USD
    Again, welcome to the New Cancun! The Family Friendliest Place on Earth!
