You’ll soon be packing your bags and heading for the white sands and turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean and your Grand Residences home away from home. Here’s a look at some of the fun sports and classes that the Activity Center has in store for you.
Start the day with yoga, pilates or practice your serve in the tennis clinic held three times a week at 8 a.m. Learn Spanish, try out new Latin dance steps or take part in a stretching class at 9 a.m.
Sign up for the bike ride into Puerto Morelos during the week, go for a walk along the beach or compete in a Sunday table tennis tournament at 10 a.m. At 11 a.m. on different days of the week you can attend zumba, aqua fitness and bracelet making sessions, a salsa class and even a basic survival skills workshop on the beach.
For more pool fitness at noon take part in the aqua aerobics class or water polo and there’s a total body exercise class in the Activity Center on Thursday. And don’t miss poolside family bingo at 1 p.m.
Activities at 2 p.m. during the week range from learning how to create the swans, elephants, bears and other fun figures that your housekeepers make from towels during the towel origami class or bracelet making. Throw down the gauntlet for a darts match or a paper plane challenge and test your knowledge in the movie and music quizzes.
Head for the beach at 3 p.m. for a game of soccer or volleyball. You’ll have more fun in the Activity Center with DJ classes and karaoke and there’s pool volleyball and family bingo. Later in the afternoon you can play card games, table football and table tennis and compete in a Just Dance tournament.
Sign up for a cooking class or a cocktail mixology class with one of our star bartenders and if you are feeling creative, try your hand at pottery painting.
Don’t miss traditional afternoon tea on the lobby terrace at 4 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Try the sandwiches, freshly made scones still warm from the oven and a selection of cakes. Reservations are required.
Finally, we hope to see you on Monday for the Manager’s Cocktail at 5 p.m.
