A different tour during your holidays in Cancun and Playa del Carmen: support a no-kill shelter and adopt a rescue dog

If you are looking for a different tour during your holidays in Cancun or Playa del Carmen, Mayan Explore (ME) has something unique to offer. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility program, we have started supporting Playa Animal Rescue (PAR). This is a no-kill shelter located in Playa del Carmen which has a few and amazing activities for Dog Lovers who want to make a difference in rescued dogs’ lives. You can donate your time to the shelter (there is always something to do); you can participate in Waggle Walks on Thursdays; you can just spend sometimes at the shelter and meet all the beautiful dogs at PAR; or you can go for Spa & Playa Day on Saturdays.  

Help a dog get confident and fit!
You will feel an amazing and positive energy when you get to PAR. When you step through the doors you will find such a welcoming and unique feeling that you will want to cuddle every single dog in the shelter. People at PAR will be with you every step of the way in order to make sure you will have a great time. And here comes our favorite feature of the tour: the magic of love at first sight when a new family begins before Jan’s eyes (the spectacular Co-Director). Needless to say, PAR’s dogs are so incredible that hearts open up and pet’s adoption happen on the spot. All this makes for the perfect tour while you are on holiday in Cancun or the area. You will see a one of a kind endeavor to make a difference in the world and you can be part of this. Pet’s adoption is the new perspective of Responsible Tourism and the only risk is that you will fall in love with one of the doggies.
PAR has rescued dozens and dozens of stray dogs in the area, rehabilitated them and found forever homes for over 150 beautiful animals. They have managed to send rescued dogs to Colorado, Boston, Calgary, Toronto and many other places. It is a lot easier than you may think to support the shelter through cash or time donation as well as pet’s adoption while vacationing in Cancun or Playa del Carmen. What are you waiting for to find your new family member?
