As if four nights of music in paradise wasn’t enough, we set up a ton of activities to keep your afternoons filled with excitement. We curated a schedule of daytime fun ranging from daily yoga and poolside games to our annual Closer to the Rim 3-on-3 Invitational. These were a great time to meet new friends and explore the resort! Check out all the fun we had with 2019’s activities.
