Mexico Meeting & Incentive Planner 2018 - 19

"Planners are continuously inquiring about
outdoor team building activities, which are
now changing a meetings-only trip to one
that has a 70-to-30 meetings and incentives
ratio within the trip."
Melia currently has 15 hotels that
planners can choose from in Mexico, nine
of which can be found in Playa del Carmen
and the Riviera Maya. Adding wellness to
meetings and incentives in Playa del Carmen
can be as easy as shopping therapy along
the Quinta Avenida, discovering Maya
ruins in Tulum and Xaman, and exploring
the stunning natural beauty of the Xcaret
and Sian Ka'an reserves, all of which can be
arranged through the hotels. The Riviera
Maya on the Yucatan Peninsula has a vibe
all of its own. Groups can center themselves
through water-based activities in and along
the turquoise Caribbean Sea, through a
tour of the pre-Hispanic city of Chichen Itza
archaeological site that ends with a swim
through ancient cenotes or a jaunt through
the ecological park of Kantun Chi or the
natural reserve of Rio Secreto.

"Planners are continuously inquiring about outdoor
team building activities, which are now changing a

Barcelo Hotels & Resorts
Barcelo Maya Grand Resort, located in
the Riviera Maya, offers groups five hotels
in one massive complex. With that comes
the 32,000-sf U-Spa, often touted as one
of the area's best because of its centrally
located wellness zone. Here, attendees
will find a world of saunas, steam baths,
tropical and bi-thermal showers and a
menu of spa treatments available in
one of 26 treatment rooms.
But mind-body balance isn't the
resort's only wellness focus. Last year, they
implemented a green meetings program
that includes waste reduction and
energy-saving efforts. These sustainable
techniques are used throughout the

resort and also include treating water in
filtration plants and developing an on-site
vegetable garden.

Velas Resorts
At Velas Resorts, the meetings trend is
stimulating creativity. One method is giving
attendees a mandala coloring book and
colored pencils to be used as a meeting
break that gets the creative juices flowing.
The company also recently launched "Next
Big Idea Getaway" at Grand Velas Los
Cabos for creatives and execs and those
looking to discover their next big idea.
"Creativity needs space and freedom
from digital distractions," says Jorge Meraz,
director of cluster group sales for Velas

3 Jaw-Dropping Golf Experiences
Some of the best golf in the world happens in Mexico. Here
are three of the top-rated courses to get your group started.

1

Attendees can play at Mexico's first golf course to host
an official PGA Tour event at El Camaleon, located in
Mayakoba, with access to three properties: Fairmont
Mayakoba, Rosewood Mayakoba and Banyan Tree
Mayakoba. The 18-hole course winds through the property's
lush tropical landscape with jungle and ocean views for an
unforgettable-and challenging-round of golf.

2

The sea-swept Jack Nicklaus-designed course at
One&Only Palmilla Los Cabos has been a regular on
Golf Digest's "Best of Mexico" list. The course's 27 holes
and three nines stagger around four lakes and deep shifts in
elevation, offering golfers a real challenge with the added
reward of jaw-dropping views.

3

Another postcard-perfect course just a 30-minute drive
south of Cancun is the Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf
Club. The 18-hole P.B. Dye course is edged by lush
landscaping, wildlife and ancient ruins in the distance while
also featuring deep bunkers and narrow fairways, making it
challenging for beginning golfers.
