For Groove Cruise Miami 2020, anyone sailing on the trip from Miami to Costa Maya and looking to take part in the Whet Foundation’s relief project will get to visit Casa de la Cultura, a local school in the village of Mahahual, Costa Maya. During this excursion, volunteers will help facilitate upgrades such as clearing an area for a playground, a new coat of paint for the school, supplying a new air conditioner, and treating 450 locals to a hearty meal, as well as bringing the donated school supplies and clothing to the students and staff. Many volunteers rate their Whet Foundation experience as the highlight of Groove Cruise. To learn more about the Whet Foundation, visit and follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
