Manuel and his team went above and beyond in helping me plan and execute a truly special marriage proposal onboard a catamaran sailing into the sunset. I could not have been happier with how proactive Manuel was in suggesting ideas and in his team’s flawless execution and attention to detail.
I was originally connected to 4 Worlds by the concierge at the Rosewood Mayakoba. My vision was to charter a private sunset cruise on a catamaran because sailboats and sunsets are my girlfriend’s (now fiancé’s) two favorite activities. I gave Manuel a brief outline of my plan over email and then I connected with him over the phone to discuss. He was able to secure a 40 foot catamaran for the occassion. In addition, he suggested the idea of having a smaller boat approach our boat and serenade us with a saxophone player. I absolutely loved his proposal and I realized at that moment that he not only understood the details of what I wanted but also the overall mood and experience I was trying to create.
On the day of the occasion, his team picked us up at our hotel. We first did a ruins tour of Tulum. Then Manuel arranged for us to have cocktails and lunch on the deck of a secluded boutique hotel on the waterfront. He picked a truly perfect location for us to kick off the romantic part of the occasion. His team then drove us to the marina where we met Manuel who was waiting for us. We boarded the boat which had an amazing crew joined by Manuel’s tour guide who was there to photograph and record the proposal. The crew made us feel very comfortable including fantastic cocktails and appetizers. We sailed along the coast and on the way back while sailing into the sunset, Manuel and his saxophone player approached on a smaller boat. The moment was absolutely perfect and I couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out. The team then brought us champagne to celebrate. Manuel arranged for us to have a romantic dinner in town and then took us back to our hotel.
While in Playa del Carmen, we also did a Cenote tour with Manuel’s team. This is an amazing activity that I highly recommend. Our guide took us to a fairly secluded location and lead us a private tour of an underground river that meanders through various caves. It was just us and the tour guide and it was absolutely beautiful. Transportation included a driver and a well-appointed SUV.
I will definitely plan more activities with 4 Worlds the next time we are in the region.
