WOULDN'T IT BE NICE...
...to pay one price for a vacation and enjoy it without spending
penny? Your dreams can come true on an all-inclusive trip with Sh-Boom to
the Iberostar Quetzal resort in Playa del Carmen. "All-inclusive" means you
don't need to spend additional money, if you choose not to, and still have
the time of your life.
Jump in to the Caribbean Sea on your first day or go sailing. You can also
windsurf, kayak, or go snorkeling. One of four swimming pools is devoted
solely to water sports. Swim laps, try aqua-aerobics, play water volleyball,
water polo, or basketball. Try the rifle or archery range, billiards, ping
pong, or foosball. There are three tennis courts, a health center, a
gymnasium, saunas and Jacuzzi's.
If you want to relax, cabanas cover the beach and swimming pool area. The
main pool is the size of a small lake complete with coves and an island with
a hot tub. The adults-only pool features a waterfall. Stroll through the
natural jungle throughout the property where flamingos, toucans, giant
turtles, and monkeys make their home.
The food? A huge buffet-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner is always
available and menu selections change daily. The Thursday night seafood
buffet includes all-you-can-eat lobster, shrimp, and fresh fish. Choose from
three specialty restaurants; Italian, Mexican, or a Steakhouse. The snack
bar is open from morning to night.
Okay, okay, the drinks? A plethora of bars offer unlimited frozen drinks,
cocktails, beer, and soft drinks. A free mini-bar, in your room, is stocked
daily with bottled water, beer, and soda.
The entertainment? Sh-Boom performs three shows during the week, while the
Iberostar's entertainment crew, "The Starfriends", perform nightly.
Yes, one price covers everything mentioned above. Join Sh-Boom on a trip you
will never forget. For details, call Meritek Travel at (314)592-3900 or

Sh-Boom Plans Full Week of Vacation Activities in Playa Del Carmen
The wonderfully secluded and exotic Iberostar Quetzal Resort

resort such as volleyball, swimming pool games, and much more.
The Mexican Riviera represents one of the most versatile vacation
destinations in the world. The shopping and nightlife Mecca of Cancun and
the sleepy island of Cozumel are only minutes away. Cozumel, with its' black
coral reef, boasts some of the best scuba diving anywhere.
Sightseers will enjoy the beautiful seaside Mayan ruins of Tulum or Chichen
