Best of Playa Raffle & Fundraiser May 27 for the Peanut Pet Shelter

Posted by Tony & Cheri on April 24, 2011

Our friends at the Peanut Pet Shelter here in Playa del Carmen have had a rough year. A local competing charity and various individuals with personal agendas tried in a malicious and underhanded way to discredit and close them down. It was an ugly campaign that caused rifts between various individuals and businesses. Fortunately this small group was unsuccessful in their endeavor. However, the result of their effort was a reduction in donations to the Peanut Pet Shelter, which has since then been struggling to make ends meet.

We are big supporters of the Peanut Pet Shelter. Because of them, we have our dog Roxie (the star of the poster) and, indirectly, our dog Gypsy, both of whom entertain us and make us happy on a daily basis. Many of our friends here in Mexico and also in the US and Canada have adopted dogs that were rescued by the PPS. We have seen first hand the amazing work they do in rescuing and caring for the many, many abandoned animals of Playa.

As a result, we’ve decided to join together with other local business owners and sponsor a kick ass raffle and fundraiser to not only raise a boatload of cash for the Peanut Pet Shelter but to show them that the people of Playa del Carmen and the nearby communities care about them and see them as a valuable part of life here south of the border.

We’re calling it the “Best of Playa,” because most of Playa del Carmen’s best businesses (as well as several businesses from the surrounding communities) are donating prizes to this worthy cause.

Raffle Details

From now until the Best of Playa Raffle Party on Friday May 27, 2011, for every $10 donation to the Peanut Pet Shelter, you will receive one raffle ticket for the Best of Playa Raffle, where Playa’s best businesses have donated dozens of cool prizes to support this worthy cause. Tickets may be purchased via the link below until 4 pm the day of the event.

Before the event, tickets will also be available at the Luna Blue Hotel & Bar and at the Peanut Pet Shelter dog & puppy washes on Saturdays & Sundays. Tickets will also be available at the event up until the drawing.

You need not be present to win…but you do need to go to paradise to redeem. 🙂

Every 10 kilos of dog food donated to the Peanut Pet Shelter will earn the donor another raffle ticket. Food may be delivered to the Peanut Pet Shelter or the Luna Blue Hotel or brought to the event.

The drawing for prizes will be at the Best of Playa Raffle party at the Luna Blue Bar on May 27. We will have live music, drink specials and some fun surprises. AND 50% of the bar proceeds will go to the Peanut Pet Shelter!

SCUBA Diving…More Goodies for Luna Blue Guests

Posted by Tony & Cheri on October 20, 2010

Mexico Blue Dream dive center in Playa del Carmen MexicoOne of the most popular activities here in the Mayan Riviera is SCUBA diving. That’s not a surprise since just offshore is the world’s second largest continuous coral reef. With a few hours of training, visitors can be swimming among some of the most beautiful and diverse sea life in the world.

Guests of the Luna Blue Hotel who have always wanted to try SCUBA diving are now in luck. Starting today, all Luna Blue guests receive a free SCUBA pool demo with our friends at Mexico Blue Dream dive center, just a couple of blocks from the hotel and a half block from the best beach in Playa.

Mexico Blue Dream dive center in Playa del Carmen MexicoIf you’d like to give SCUBA a try, just let us know before or after your arrival and we’ll set it up for you. You’ll be able to try SCUBA in the safety of a pool with trained dive masters at no cost at all. If you find you love it, the folks at Mexico Blue Dream will be happy to talk with you about a Discover SCUBA class or even about how you can become certified. Or, if you find that snorkeling is more your preference, they can take you to some of the best snorkeling spots in the area.

If you’re already a SCUBA diver, we highly recommend Mexico Blue Dream for some of the best prices and service you’ll find in Playa del Carmen.

In the near future, we’ll be offering some attractive dive packages for our diving friends where you can save both on your hotel and diving costs. So keep in touch. 🙂
