                                                                        You will have open options for the shoot. Wanted to scare your kid(s), want a staged shot with Krampus, or have an idea we can try to accommodate?

                                                                        Shoots are up to a 1/2 hour and have a limit of 4 children/individuals in each session.

You're now packed and headed back to the real world. As you leave your room and head to the Viva la Hotel Cancun lobby to check out, the clerk asks for your room keys. No one in your party has their room key! The clerk informs your group that they cannot leave the premises until the keys are returned. If necessary, the Cancun Police will be called. Theft of the room keys could result in incarceration! How you go about locating your missing keys is up to you, however, we suggest that you start at the lobby's center table....
