Vacation Specialist: Brandon Smith
Travel AgentMy name is Brandon, I have been a travel specialist here at Dream Vacations since November 15th 2005. During that time I have sent more than 15,900 individuals on vacation to many various resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean. I love what I do, we make vacation dreams a reality! When you call me, get ready to travel because you and I will find exactly what you are looking for.

I have traveled out of the country to the following vacation spots; Aruba, Cabo San Lucas (2 times), Cancun, the Riviera Maya (8 times), Puerto Vallarta (3 times), Punta Cana and Jamaica (3 times). During these trips, a little of my time was spent relaxing but the majority of these trips have been work trips or FAMs we call them. During a FAM trip we are responsible for touring as many properties as possible so that we can be more familiar with the products we are offering. I feel that this gives me a tremendous advantage over other agencies based on personal experience and traveler feed back.

My most recent vacation was September 4th 2012 to the Iberostar Paraiso Maya in the Riviera Maya Mexico. I spent four nights there and I toured about 22 different resorts in the area. I had a great time this past September and I highly recommend the Iberostar Paraiso Maya!

Travel Agent takes on the Riviera Maya Excursion “Xplor”

Riviera Maya Excursion XplorWant a thrilling Riviera Maya excursion? Take it from me personally, Xplor is a blast! As you climb the first zip line tower, your mind starts to race with the fear of heights or falling and the wind is blowing hard high upon those towers. I reach the first hook up point after a long hike up the many stairs, huffing and puffing when I got there. As I get hooked up to the first line I hear “I just want to live!!!!” from the person in front of me… now I’m a little worried. First and foremost, I have personally had the opportunity to visit many locations and take advantage of quiet a few fun tours and excursions during my travels to Mexico or the Caribbean. With that being said, Xplor which is located in the Riviera Maya Mexico was a very fun filled day of excitement and beauty all wrapped in one! I visited the Xplor park on April 3rd 2014 with two of my friends who had never done anything like this before. XplorWe first road the amphibious vehicles through the jungle trails and caves. These vehicles don’t go to fast but for sure fast enough, especially if you are the last vehicle in the group… which we were so we stopped and let the others go ahead, and then we ripped through those trails hitting every bump on the way! After that, we went beyond the surface and set sail on paddle rafts that you control with your hand paddles. You go through the under water cavers and discover fascinating grottoes and the amazing stalactites and stalagmites in the amazing underground world. After we had our fun in the underwater caves and amphibious vehicles, we sat down for a decent buffet style lunch which we was a nice treat. While you are in the Xplor park you are considered all inclusive so you can eat and drink any time. Be sure to bring your own towel and maybe a change of clothes for after you are all done, you can store them in your locker that is provided with your park entrance. XplorThe most exciting activity of the day was the enormous zip line circuit that they have. There are 14 different zip lines that you go through split into two separate circuits. There is a lot of climbing involved and it sometimes seemed as if as soon as I reached the top huffing and puffing, it was time to soar through the sky so get ready to experience the sensation of speed, explore from the heights of the park and all of it’s natural beauty from one tower to the next! A few of the zip lines actually end up landing you in the crystal clear waters of the cenotes for a cool, refreshing end to the activity. And there is also one big long water slide tube that you go down which again is very refreshing at the time. The zip lines have heights ranging from 26 feet up to 147 feet high!!! TICKET COST: From $122 per adult and $61 per child 12 years old or young. Minimum age allowed is 6 years old HOW TO PURCHASE: Simply click here and then go to the Riviera Maya Tours to get started!
