Dare to Dream and You Could Win a Free Beach Vacation

Cancun Beach Vacation - Dreams Sands Cancun -

Picture this. You’re lying on a silk-sanded beach. It’s a perfect 80 degrees and the sun is beating down on your sun-kissed body, as the calming sounds of icy-blue waves crashing on the shore soothe you into a state of utter relaxation. The only distraction you encounter is the cabana staff asking you if you’d care for another cocktail. It almost sounds like a fictional place right? False.

We’re simply describing the BRAND NEW Unlimited-Luxury® Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa. With the grand opening happening this weekend, we can only imagine that the next few months are going to big, bright beautiful ones for this 5-sun rated resort in Cancun. And the great news is that we want to send three lucky winners to experience it all firsthand in our Dare to Dream sweepstakes. But more on that in a minute

Cancun Beach Vacation - Dreams Sands Cancun Resort -

We want to tell more about what awaits for you at Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa. Located right on the coast in Cancun’s Hotel Zone, you’ll be right by all of the action. Downtown hot spots are just 15 minutes away, the convention center is near by, and shopping malls and restaurants are all within walking distance. But with all the hotel’s amenities, you may not even need to leave the resort.

There’s 650 ft. of beach called Playa Viva, which comes fully equipped with chaise loungers and palapas all across the sand. Two beachfront pools are perfect for bouncing between salt & fresh water. And Barracuda Bar is strategically located between the two so your palette always stays crisp and refreshed. Spend the days in the sun, but as soon as dusk hits – towel off and getting dolled up for a night packed full of fun.

With eight on-site restaurants at your beck and call, meal choices will be unique and different for nearly every meal. Word on the street is the French cuisine at Bordeaux or Pan-Asian experience at Hitmitsu is pretty out-of-this-world. And there are even nighttime movies on the beach and entertaining shows. Oh and don’t forget to hit up Dreams Spa by Pevonia for a custom hydrotherapy spa treatment. Seriously, we couldn’t dream this vacation up any more perfectly.

So now, how to get your hands on one of three 4-night trips for two, including round-trip airfare to Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico:

Cinco de Mayo Festivities

Cinco de Mayo week is in full swing, and we’ve got the festivities to prove it! If it’s not a collection of margarita and salsa recipes from our fans, it’s a Spotify playlist with some Mexican flair to get your Cinco party started. We’ve got deal after deal on our site from Oasis Cancun, Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta, Dreams Puerto Aventuras and so many more Mexican retreats for proper Cinco celebration! And, last, but certainly not least, we’re giving away a 5-day trip to Mexico to one lucky Facebook winner. Quite a lucky winner, indeed.

Mexico Trip Giveaway

If you’re itching to get to Mexico, we’ve got tons of cool places for you to play while on vacay. Since the best place in Cancun to grab a tequila shot, according to our lovely Facebook fans, is Senor Frogs, we think you should grab a spot at Oasis Cancun.

Oasis Cancun

Pull up a lounge chair and work on that summer tan or party it up at Senor Frogs with tequila shots galore. You can dance the night away there or shake it at one of the nine bars at the resort. With so many activities like one massive lagoon to kayak across, waterfalls, golf, swim up bars, and ridiculously long zip lines to get your kicks, it’ll be easy to make this Mexican vacay one to remember.

If the Riviera Maya is more your style, Dreams Puerto Aventuras, is a marvelous resort. Upscale luxury where practically every activity you could imagine is included. And no, they’re not serving well-liquor… it’s only the cream of the crop top shelf at this high class joint. Grab a cooking or Spanish language class or throw on some snorkel gear and attend a world-class training for that sort of thing. We’ve got a whole lotta love for dinner on the beach under grass hut cover and you can’t get this sort of feeling anywhere else. It belongs to Mexico.

Dreams Puerto Aventuras

If it’s from the comfort of your lovely cabana on the beach in Mexico… or at the house party sippin’ on margaritas and dippin’ chips in salsa, be sure to celebrate Cinco with us. We’re celebrating Cinco in all sorts of ways… bringing you the deals and hanging out on Facebook, you know, just in case you wanted to stop by!

Congratulations to our two winners!
