Our Guest Services staff will coordinate with all purchasers to ensure that they are in good hands immediately upon arrival. Please note: shuttle access is only included to and from Cancún International Airport; no other airports in the area will be serviced.
How often will shuttles be running from Cancún International Airport (CUN) to the resorts? How often will they be running from the resort to CUN after the event is over?
We will be reaching out to all of our guests for their arrival and departure flight information before the event. Our shuttle schedule will be developed around that information.
How far is my hotel from the Cancún International Airport?

- The Dreams Tulum is 111 km or approximately an hour and 20 minutes by shuttle bus.
- The Secrets Akumal is 91 km or approximately an hour and 7 minutes by shuttle bus.
Is parking provided at the hotel?
Yes, you can park at your own hotel. However, guests not staying at the Barceló may not park at the Barceló for the event. You must ride a Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds shuttle to the show, or arrange for your own private transportation to pick you up and drop you off. A reminder: transportation WILL be available for all Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds guests to and from the airport, as well as to and from the Barceló for the concerts provided you are staying at one of our other resorts.
Members of my party may be arriving late. How can they check in at the hotel and receive their tickets?
Late arrival is no problem, as Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds staff will be available for the duration of the event to accommodate guests and any needs. All arrival plans will need to be provided to us in advance to ensure the smoothest check-in possible.
The original purchaser of my order is arriving at a different time than other guests in our party. Will this be an issue?
No. We will confirm all guests in each order before the event begins. Once all guests are registered, they can arrive before or after the original purchaser and and still experience a seamless check-in.
Can we check in early to the hotel? Will the hotel hold our bags if our room isn’t ready? I want to get to the event ASAP!
Standard hotel check-in times apply across all of our hotels. Hotel check-in time is often not guaranteed until 3PM or 4PM. We have communicated with each of our hotels and they have assured us that they will do everything in their power to have rooms prepared as early as possible, though it is unlikely that a hotel check-in would occur prior to 12 noon. If you arrive before your room is available, we will be happy to provide you with your resort credentials so that you can enjoy the resort amenities as your room is being prepared.
How far is my hotel from Playa Azul (the music venue)?
Performances will take place on site at the Barceló Maya Resort. Official Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds shuttles will transport guests from other partner resorts to the Barceló:

- The Rosewood, Fairmont, and Banyan Tree Mayakoba Resorts are 34 km or approximately 30 minutes by shuttle bus.
- The Dreams Tulum is 32 km or approximately 25 minutes by shuttle bus.
- The Secrets Akumal is 13 km or approximately 11 minutes by shuttle bus.

Guests who aren’t staying at the Barceló will not be allowed on the resort grounds (outside of the venue) before or after the shows.
What sort of special activities are planned besides music?
There will be no shortage of exciting and diverse activities to enjoy at each Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds resort, as well as out and about in the local area. For off-site trips, please explore our Adventures page.
Is there a dress code?
Most dining areas require shirts, shoes and pants (not shorts), but there are no specific dress guidelines for the resorts or concert venue area.
What do you suggest for an international phone plan or alternative communication?
Each phone network has unique options; we suggest checking with your service provider for specific choices. Every resort has Wi-Fi available, so laptops and smartphones can provide inexpensive alternatives for calling including Skype and Viber.
Please note: Access to Wi-Fi may incur an additional fee, depending in which resort you stay.
Do I need an outlet converter?
No, all partner resorts have conversion outlets already built in to accommodate American plugs.
Is there laundry service?
All partner resorts provide laundry services, though the costs vary for each hotel.
Can I pay with U.S. currency at the resort?
Yes, all resorts accept U.S. currency, as do most restaurants, bars, and shops in the surrounding area.
If we stay at a resort besides the Barceló, will there be complimentary food and drink available when we arrive at the concerts each night?
Absolutely, all Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds guests will be greeted with a fantastic variety of food and drink options within the venue area, all included in your package price. There will even be dozens of servers bringing drinks into the crowd each night, so you won’t need to leave your spot!
What if I change my mind and don’t want my package any longer?
All of our packages are non-refundable. Please refer to the Purchase Policy for complete details.
