    We will be making our first trip to Cancun Temptation's Resort. We will be staying in the Tower. Looking for recommendations to newbies for theme nights, restaurants, and the spa. Any other advice would be great.

    Trip dates March 31st - April 6th .

    Thank You,

    P & D

    Read through this forum for trip reports. You'll find a treasure trove of good info and what to expect.

    A quick summary would be to have an open mind and go with the flow. Temptation is a great place to let loose. The mantra is "No one knows you and no one gives a sh!t" Bring your sexiest outfits and leave your inhibitions behind.

    Other little tips are:

    things to pack: sunscreen, insect repellent, hooks (for hanging towels, swimsuits in the room), OTC meds (Tylenol, ibuprofen, antacid, anti-diarrheal, anti-emetic (for nausea), hydrocortisone cream, Benadryl, eye drops, aloe vera gel) hats, sunglasses, flip flops, carabiner (to secure your bag to the chair)

    bring small bills and prepare to tip. Tips are not "necessary" but they are appreciated and the average hotel worker in Mexico makes barely nothing.

    practice common Spanish phrases. Most of the staff can speak English well, but it's nice to show you are making an effort to appreciate their language. Expressions like "buenas dias", "por favor", "gracias", "de nada", "buenos tardes", "disculpe", "buenas noches" are simple and courteous.

    if you have never been to Cancun airport, just keep in mind one important thing: After arriving, getting your bags and clearing customs, there is a hallway towards the outdoors. This hallway will be full of agents offering to help. They are not airport employees and they really are not helpful; they just want to sell you something. Walk directly past them, ignore them (they will call out to you like you dropped something or they have your reservation) and avoid eye contact until you walk past the doors to the outside. Outside will be the dozens of taxi/shuttle employees (the legit ones) and if you booked a ride, you'll find it there.

    My other tip is to avoid the timeshare/membership presentation. I know others here are members, and might disagree. However, we've 2, maybe 3 presentations over the years and they have ranged from bad to downright awful (verbally abusive even) so I'd steer clear of those.

    Other than that, enjoy the sun, sand, beach, pool good food, great staff, friendly guests, sexy entertainment and sexier atmosphere that is Temptation.

    We are taking our first trip to Temptation next month and have questions about transport. We booked through Temptation for round trip transfer but it doesn’t say what company it’s with. Anybody know how the transfers work?

    It will be USA Transfers. Once you have your luggage and crossed customs (they flag you to inspect) go straight towards the outisde (avoid the time share sharks). Once outside, find the USA Transfers rep and they will guide you to your vehicle.

    My wife and I have been to the Riviera Maya 6 times and have used USA Transfers for all of our visits. Go to their website, they have a step by step walk through of exactly what to expect. They also have a dedicated app you can download that contains all the information you'll need when you check in with them. They just scan the QR code, and you're officially on vacation!

    I couldn't recommend them more highly!

    Thanks for the advice, I downloaded the USA and original groups travel app. Neither will sign us in using the booking number we have. We just made final payment and it hasn’t posted to our account yet. Maybe we need to wait a bit longer. We will call them Monday if not.

    We got our travel vouchers but it says it’s through aventour. Is that still USA Transfers or a different company?

    That’s a different company. Who sent you the vouchers?

    It’s got both the Temptation and Aventour logos on it.

    it’s from an Aventour.com.mx email address and it copied temptation@originalgroup.com
