Last month, I embarked on an awe-inspiring trip through Mexico with our newly appointed, award winning partner Valeria Serrano from CTA Event Design DMC. Our journey started with a fantastic FAM trip, co-hosted with Avenue Sales and All About Flights. This was followed by a deep dive of the stunning regions of Cancun, Riviera Maya, and Los Cabos. These three magnificent locations serve as a wellspring of inspiration for incentive trips.

The Yucatan Peninsula:

Imagine a picturesque kaleidoscope of vibrant colours as the Yucatan Peninsula emerges, separating the sapphire Gulf of Mexico from the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Here, you will discover Mexico’s most enchanting resorts, including the captivating trio of Cancun, Riviera Maya, and Tulum. Immerse yourself in tropical white-sand beaches, venture into dense jungles teeming with mesmerizing wildlife, explore authentic colourful villages, and marvel at the ancient Mayan ruins that bring the region’s history to life. The peninsula is also home to 6000 wondrous cenotes, majestic natural sinkholes and caves filled with crystal-clear water. These cenotes hold sacred significance for the ancient Maya civilization, symbolizing both life and death. Today, we have the privilege of exploring these mystical cenotes, creating unforgettable team-building experiences, and immersing ourselves in their beauty.

During my journey, I had the pleasure of visiting several cenotes, including the renowned Rio Secreto and the privately owned cenotes of Viceroy Riviera Maya.

Did you know that the Cancun-Riviera Maya region is home to the mesmerizing Mesoamerican Reef System? This natural wonder is the second-largest barrier reef on the planet, surpassed only by the majestic Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Dive into a paradise where snorkelers and divers are welcomed by captivating underwater scenery.

We also embarked on an adventure through the dense mangrove forests of Cancun, navigating yellow speed boats. Our journey led us to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, where we swam with turtles and observed waving corals, colourful fish, and even baby sharks.

The peninsula pulsates with the vibrant heartbeat of Mayan culture, proudly showcasing historic sites such as the legendary Chichen Itza. Exploring the mystic ruins of Coba was a highlight, where we were surrounded by an awe-inspiring fusion of history, nature, and exhilaration. Climbing the colossal pyramid known as Ixmoja, part of the Nohoch Mul group of buildings, allowed us to touch the sky and marvel at the heart of the ancient city. Unlike other Maya sites, this pyramid still offers the opportunity to ascend its majestic heights, ensuring an unforgettable experience. We explored the Coba region on bicycles, embracing the spirit of adventure as we immersed ourselves in its splendour.

Our next Mexican destination was Los Cabos (Cabo San Lucas):

Enter Cabo San Lucas, an idyllic resort city nestled upon the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. Los Cabos beckons visitors to an oasis where tranquillity, adventure, and wellness fuse together to create an unparalleled experience. Immerse yourself in white sandy beaches as crystal-clear waters invite you to plunge into a world of boundless exploration. The dramatic desert landscapes provide a breath-taking backdrop for a myriad of team-building activities on both land and water. Los Cabos offers a treasure trove of golf courses, art, culture, vibrant nightlife, and an award-winning gastronomy scene, seamlessly converging to craft an ideal incentive destination.

Viceroy Resorts in Mexico:

Viceroy Riviera Maya – Embracing Exquisite Luxury:

Imagine an enchanting realm where elegance intertwines with pure enchantment amidst the verdant jungles of Playa del Carmen. At Viceroy Riviera Maya, an opulent haven that we proudly represent, I witnessed first-hand the impeccable accommodations. Forty-one luxury villas adorned with private plunge pools await every guest. Intimate and flexible event spaces, tantalizing gastronomic masterpieces, and invigorating wellness offerings, including a traditional Mayan cleansing ceremony, enhanced every aspect of my Viceroy Riviera Maya experience. Every minute detail exemplifies Viceroy’s unwavering commitment to excellence.

Viceroy Los Cabos – Where Tranquillity Meets the Thrill of Adventure:

Nestled in the captivating embrace of Los Cabos, where the majestic Pacific Ocean converges with the azure waters of the Gulf of Cortez, lies Viceroy Los Cabos. This architecturally stunning haven presents 198 luxurious rooms and villas boasting mesmerizing ocean views. Indulge in the divine artistry of four gastronomic masterpieces accompanied by live entertainment. The versatile event spaces and exhilarating team-building activities.  Prepare to embark on an unforgettable MICE experience at this haven of unparalleled allure.

Cancun, Riviera Maya & Los Cabos Hotel Showcase:

During my journey, I had the pleasure of visiting numerous hotels and resorts scattered across Cancun, Riviera Maya, and Los Cabos. All regions boast a rich array of accommodations, catering to every budget, need, and preference. From intimate boutique retreats to expansive all-inclusive resorts, there is a perfect abode for every MICE adventure. It would be my pleasure to assist you in curating your next event, ensuring that you find the ideal accommodation for your needs.

Wrapping it up:

My immersive odyssey through Cancun, Riviera Maya, and Los Cabos unveiled a vibrant tapestry of extraordinary findings and experiences. Armed with this passion and knowledge, I am confident that we can help you create perfect incentives, meetings & events, product launches or conferences that exceed expectations. Mexico is a land brimming with hidden gems, waiting to be discovered. Allow us the pleasure of connecting you with Valeria at CTA and together we can orchestrate a spellbinding 30-minute 1-2-1 webinar journey, breathing life into this extraordinary country.
