Riviera Maya Snowbirds! Here is our Our #1 Exciting Tip for KKIS Supporters!

It’s time to start planning your trip to the Riviera Maya!

It’s that time of the year again… The leaves are changing, the temperature is dropping, and soon many of our dear snowbird friends and supporters will be hopping on planes to escape the cold winter and traveling down to the beautiful, sunny Riviera Maya!

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity from WestJet

To all of you flying on WestJet, we wanted to give you a heads up on an amazing program they offer, where you can request a humanitarian baggage waiver, to support education in the Riviera Maya and increase the graduation rate of high school and university scholars.

This means that you can bring down school supplies and check in a bag completely free of charge! You can read all about it here. 

This small act of kindness is an amazing way to take action.

Please note: All guests applying for the excess baggage waiver must be identified by KKIS in their affiliation letter.

Application requests will only be accepted greater than 7 days prior to the departure date and with a confirmed flight reservation.

If the request is not approved in advance, baggage fee(s) will apply at the airport.

If you are considering this option, please let us know so that we can provide the requested letter.

Email info@kkisproject.org if you have any further questions and we look forward to seeing you all soon in the Riviera Maya!

Did you know?

Although the tradition of receiving Baby Jesus on the night of December 24 has gained prominence in recent decades, Mexico still claims the old traditions and the Three Kings Day is still one of the most important events in the different festivities of Christmas.

The Three Kings of the East tradition is one of the oldest in Mexico since the time of Spanish colonization and even today many families keep celebrating this special day where children are certainly the main protagonists.

KKIS has been celebrating the winter season in the Riviera Maya along the years with many different activities. Here is an example of what a traditional Christmas posada looked like in the past. Here is another important example of how the English Conversation Club our wonderful volunteers participate in really pays off!

Before you leave!
