Funjet Vacations Launches ‘On Demand’ Virtual Tours of the Riviera Maya on Funjet.com

Interactive Video Tours, Plus Daily Blog Updates, Put Consumers in Control of Their Vacation Planning

MILWAUKEE, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ — Funjet Vacations launched an “On Demand” Virtual Tour of the Riviera Maya, offering travelers a unique way to research Mexico’s premier vacation hot spot before booking. The interactive “Mayan calendar” format allows customers to choose the content they want to see including premier resorts, beach areas, popular tourist attractions and activities, dining and much more.

This one-of-a-kind virtual familiarization tour is available through the Funjet Vacations website at http://www.funjet.com/specials/rvm_virtualfam.asp?pageMode=D&plCode .

The broadcast includes actual post-Wilma footage of 15 hotels and several attractions — all filmed the week after Thanksgiving. It features the most- popular, all-inclusive hotel chains including Aventura, Barcelo, El Dorado, Iberostar, Real and RIU Resorts.

“Our goal is to get travelers excited about visiting the Riviera Maya again,” said Ray Snisky, president of Funjet Vacations. “Right now, there is some confusion about the status of the recovery effort post-Wilma. This interactive video allows travelers to see for themselves that the Riviera Maya is the ideal destination for a winter vacation.”

The virtual tours utilize cutting-edge interactive technology and builds on Funjet Vacations’ recent successes with other new online technologies — including a web log (blog) dedicated to providing travelers and travel agents with tourism updates on the Riviera Maya. The Riviera Maya blog is located on the web at http://rivieramayaupdate.blogspot.com/ . This week Funjet Vacations also launched a new Mexico updates blog located at http://mexicoupdates.blogspot.com/ .

Both blogs put customers in control of accessing the content they want by offering the latest information about the resorts and area attractions through relevant interviews with locals, colorful photos, and informational updates.

“No other vacation company is using all of these cutting-edge online technologies to sell vacation packages to the Riviera Maya,” said Ray Snisky, president of Funjet Vacations. “Empowering customers to get the information they want when planning a vacation, in the way they want it, separates us from the competition and solidifies our market position as the leading U.S. tour operator to Mexico.”
