Punta de Mita: A Weekend Getaway

Just a short distance away of Puerto Vallarta, Punta de Mita is fast becoming Mexico’s most exclusive destination. While several luxury resorts are in development, including Rosewood and St. Regis, today’s visitors can pamper themselves by booking a room at the elegant Four Seasons or renting a villa along the dazzling coast. But it’s Punta de Mita’s natural beauty — a 1,500-acre spear-shaped peninsula surrounded on three sides by pristine beaches and three bodies of water — that really make this a stand-out destination.

How: Fly direct to Puerto Vallarta from Chicago (American, Mexicana, United; about 4.5 hours), Dallas (American, Mexicana; less than 3 hours), Los Angeles (Alaska, American, Delta; about 3 hours), or Minneapolis (Northwest, Sun Country; about 4 hours); then drive 26 miles north along the coast to Punta de Mita.

Cancun – Mexico’s premier beach destination for meetings, groups and conventions

 “Some still see us as a leisure destination, yet our infrastructure is ideally suited to meetings and conventions of all size,” says Daniela Martinez, groups and conventions manager for the Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau.

In September, the World Travel Awards North & Central America awarded a prize to the Cancun Center, Conventions & Exhibitions, naming it the best convention center in Mexico and Central America. The prestigious awards have been called “the Oscars of the Travel Industry” by The Wall Street Journal.

The 154,000-square-foot Cancun Center in the heart of the hotel zone can accommodate 8,000 simultaneous attendees; its 13 meeting rooms can be divided into 37 breakout rooms, yielding 75,350 sq. ft. of meeting space. In addition, the center offers 78,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space, spanning two levels.

To recognize the importance of meeting and convention travelers, who bring in more than 51-million U.S. dollars to the destination each year, the CVB has extended its popular discount card for another year. The average visitor to Cancun with a group or convention stays four days and three nights and spends $1,250 per person, or 30 percent more than the average individual visitor. The cards provide significant savings at more than 140 participating restaurants, jewelry stores and other retailers, golf courses and other travel-related companies within Cancun and nearby Puerto Morelos.

A Luxurious Travel to Tulum

Today, the travel industry seems to be reinventing itself one more time. Beyond the trend of luxury tourism are new facets of ultra-luxury tourism such as in Tulum, Mexico where several super-high-end boutique hotels cater to travelers who are searching for a vacation beyond the Marriot or a Ritz. Part of the allure of these hotels is the intimate customer service, the feeling that you’re a guest in someone’s home, albeit a very nice home.

Many hotels in the Tulum region of Mexico, on the famed Mayan Riviera are catering not only to celebrities anymore but common folk who are searching for supreme levels of service and quality in their vacation accommodations. Guests visit Tulum to get away from the traditional boom spots of Cancun and Acapulco, looking not for mainstream restaurants or generic hotels but something different and new. Many Tulum Hotels are now featuring various lifestyle activities such as yoga, fitness, and on-site dieticians.

It’s a trend that appears to be increasing in popularity: catering years ago to baby boomers and now portions of Generation X who, with cash in their pockets and depressing economic scenarios at home, are looking to get away somewhere special. With its white sand beaches and turquoise blue waters, Tulum embodies any dreamy Caribbean getaway from postcards or movies: though not without significant development and progress thanks to hefty tourism growth. And with the coming years, the international travel scene appears to be evolving just as fast.
