Taking a flight out in style on one of our preferred partner airlines, you arrive into New Orleans in the afternoon. A transfer is provided to whisk you away from the hustle and bustle of the airport to your hotel, The Roosevelt New Orleans, now part of the Waldorf Astoria Collection. Having had a $145 million redevelopment spend, this hotel now boats itself as the premier luxury hotel in New Orleans and you will be amazed at the beauty and decadence within. The service is exemplary and every need is catered for.
Nicknamed The Big Easy the city itself is a truly harmonious mixture of cultures and traditions from Europe to the Caribbean; the warmth and security you get from walking around this city is second to none. A historically rich destination, you will have ample time to sample some of the 45 museums, varying architecture and different buildings and neighbourhoods (not forgetting the French Quarter) that all add to the diversity of this city during the day.
If the day is exciting, then night-time is exhilarating. The city of New Orleans turns itself into a spectacular array of night clubs, jazz clubs, eateries and music clubs. The decision where to spend your evening will be hard, but wherever you choose, you are guaranteed a great night out in a safe and friendly atmosphere.
One of the best times to go to this city is during the famed Mardi Gras festival held in February of each year, the atmosphere then is electric.
After all that excitement, more is to come as you pack your bags and make your way to the airport for your flight to the exotic Cancun.
On arrival into Cancun Airport, you make a short transfer to your home away from home for the next few nights, the BlueBay Grand Esmeralda, a hidden gem of Cancun situated in a privileged enclave in Playa del Carmen. This luxury 979 room resort has everything you could possibly desire but in a relaxed and intimate setting. Including a private beach, acres of lush and beautifully landscaped gardens and numerous restaurants, there could be no greater escape. Best of all, it is all inclusive, no worries about where you put that credit card!
Of course, everyone goes to Cancun for the crystal blue sea and sun. However, there may be more to Cancun than meets the eye. For a start, water sports are rife in the area, boasting some of the worlds best activities including scuba diving. The best news is that the majority of them are included at your hotel as part of the all-inclusive package!
FORE! Playing against the backdrop of the Caribbean sea, Cancun is a golfers paradise. With courses designed by people such as Jack Nicklaus, you must see it to believe it.
For nature lovers and those who just want awe inspiring sights, take time to tour the mangrove forest and the jungle where you can get up and close with nature. Come face to face with Sharks at the interactive aquarium and even don a wetsuit and feed them (from the safety of a locked cage of course!).
At the end of your 8 day stay on your New Orleans and Cancun holiday, it is time to pack up and head home on your afternoon flight back to the UK taking memories of a magical holiday where everyone was catered for.
