Firstly a Very Happy New Year to all our clients and friends around the world. Given the strange circumstances of Christmas and New Year this time around, we very much hope that you and your loved ones are well at this time and looking forward to what we all certainly hope will be a very different and much better 2021 as far as the travel industry is concerned.
Well, the good news is Destination Mexico is still ‘alive and kicking’. Of course we suffered considerably during 2020 and wondered if we would ever be able to survive the year, but survive it we have done and without losing any staff members, which is wonderful news as far as we are concerned. Many of you will already know what a dedicated and professional team we have here at the Company and we are so glad we have been able to keep them on.
After the success of our webinars on Cancun/Riviera Maya, Los Cabos and Mexico City last year, we are working on bringing you our latest webinar on the destinations of Puerto Vallarta and Punta Mita on the Pacific Coast. This area of Mexico is also being developed at an incredible rate, as not only are these two resorts being made into world-class destinations, but also the area to the north of Punta Mita known as the Riviera Nayarit, will soon be a magnet for top-class international travellers demanding the very best in luxury services.
We hope to have this webinar ready for presentation towards the end of the month, or latest at the beginning of February. As soon as possible we will be sending out news of the dates and times and very much hope you will want to register to join us at that time. Don’t miss this opportunity
The report also notes that, despite the pandemic, the United States continues to be the main international market in the Mexican Caribbean.
The Cancun International Airport has been able to reestablish the air connection with the main national and international destinations during the economic reactivation process after months of confinement due to the pandemic.
The report How are we doing in tourism? prepared by the Secretary of State Tourism, tells that one of the last flights to rejoin has been that of British Airways from London, which will reactivate the airlift with the market that brings most Europeans tourists to the Mexican Caribbean, which during 2019 exceeded half a million visitors.
80% Recovery of All Travel Activity Since June 2020 and Increased Connectivity with New Air Frequencies Starting this Month Underscore the Destination's Resiliency
Los Cabos brings 2020 to a close with nearly 80% recovery of all travel activity due to the destination's strong and swift response to control the spread of COVID-19. In March 2020, Los Cabos closed the destination for over two months to focus on the creation and implementation of health and safety measures that would allow a safe reopening for international travel.
As increasing numbers of travelers seek out spacious, private accommodations in the wake of the pandemic, Banyan Tree Mayakoba in Riviera Maya is in the midst of a $50 million expansion that will provide them with just that, and more.

The best places are the ones we keep close to our hearts.
