I recently had the opportunity to visit beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico… great timing given the incoming cold weather here in Canada! Hosted by AMResorts and Amstar DMC, I took part in The Incentives and Meetings Expo (TIME), a first annual industry event. TIME included a tradeshow component, allowing attendees to meet with a plethora of hotels from across the Caribbean. WhiIe there, I was also able to tour various properties in the AMResorts portfolio, discovering new venues for our clients’ meetings and incentive travel programs. Riviera Maya has something for everyone – whether you’re looking for high energy nightlife, delectable gastronomic meals, or a boutique-style hideaway.
To the south, Tulum is home to yoga retreats and the preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan port city. If you’re wondering whether the Tulum ruins are worth the hour drive from the Riviera area, let me tell you – go for the history, stay for the beach. The relics are perched atop the most stunning white-sand beach I have seen in the area!
