Mexican Actors Help Children Achieve Dreams in the Riviera Maya
The Mexican actors—Arturo Carmona and Ferdy Valencia—share Tres Ríos activities with children of special needs through the program “If You Dream It, You Can Achieve It” organized by Hacienda Tres Ríos and the Fundacion Televisa.
In addition to participating in an Equine Therapy session, the guests celebrated Father’s Day with some special activities in the Riviera Maya green resort.
Riviera Maya, Mexico (June 28, 2010) – Children from the Mexican Caribbean spent a special weekend with their families and Mexican actors Arturo Carmona and Ferdy Valencia with activities organized through the program “If You Dream It, You Can Achieve It” organized by Hacienda Tres Ríos and the Fundacion Televisa.
After spending the day riding horses in an Equine Therapy session at Hacienda Andalucia, the children and their families spent a special Father’s Day participating in the different activities at Tres Ríos Nature Park. The actors and children took strolls through the nature park, discovered the rivers at the resort on board kayaks and took part in the exclusive SenseAdventure tour offered by the eco-friendly resort in the Riviera Maya.
The actors from the Mexican soap operas Mar de Amor and Hasta Que el Dinero nos Separe arrived to the Mexican Caribbean and attended the Equine Therapy session with a group of 16 children with special needs. Hosted by Hacienda Andalucia—another property of Sunset World—the trip was the first for the program “If You Dream It, You Can Achieve It.”
The actors spent quality time with the children and helped in their therapy session with the horses, a service offered by Hacienda Andalucia to children in support of the local community. The families and children posed for pictures with the actors and received special gifts from Carmona and Valencia.
Carmona and Valencia also planted mangrove trees in the Tres Ríos Nature Park reforestation area at the Riviera Maya resort. The actors signed the Hacienda Tres Ríos Distinguised Guest Gold Book moments before departing to Mexico City.
“It’s wonderful to be able to participate in this type of program and join this work that helps improve the quality of life of children,” pointed out the former Big Brother participant, Carmona, and indicated his interest to return to help with the Dream program.
