Behind the scenes photos from Funjet Vacations’ live virtual tours

Earlier this month, travel agents from all over the world signed onto http://www.funjetlive.com/ from their personal computers in order to watch eight virtual tours of the Rivera Maya, airing live from Mexico’s famed Xcaret Ecological Park.

The first of its kind, this exciting online broadcast allowed Funjet Vacations to show our travel agents a first-hand glimpse into the better than ever, post-Wilma Rivera Maya and to provide them with an opportunity to ask experts in the destination questions regarding current tourism and hotel conditions.

Funjet Vacations representative Zephne Du Plessis was in the Mayan Riviera throughout the broadcasts, and was excited to share some of the colorful, behind the scenes pictures she took throughout the event.


Shot over the course of a week, the virtual tours aired live from an impressive stage located in the Riviera Maya’s famed Xcaret Ecological Park.

With help from the dedicated team at IBCTV, Funjet Vacations was able to field live questions about the Riviera Maya from travel agents all around the world.


Before each show, the Mayan Dancers at Xcaret performed an ancient ritual to rid the stage of evil spirits.


Throughout the virtual tours, destination experts fielded questions about current tourism in the Riviera Maya. Here Funjet Vacations’ Riviera Maya Live host Tammy Lee interviews Jan McCaughan of Iberostar Resorts.

After a week of hard work, host Tammy Lee and the team of destination experts celebrate the successful final taping of the live virtual tour.

Stay tuned to this blog and Funjet Vacations' websites for consumer versions of the Funjet Vacations virtual tours, which will soon be made available for your viewing pleasure.
