At Destination Mexico we are always looking for new ways to bring this wonderful destination into the thinking of our clients for future programs. In the next few Newsletters we are including a short blog on the different ‘Flavors and Cuisine’ of our destinations. We hope these blogs will help stimulate not only your enthusiasm for Mexico as a destination for your groups, but your palates also!

Los Cabos has everything to conquer your appetite.

Starting in December 2018, Panamanian Copa Airlines will offer direct flights from Panama City to Puerto Vallarta twice weekly departing on Thursdays and Sundays from both locations. The route will operate on a Boeing 737-700 designed for 12 passengers in Executive Class and 112 in the Main Cabin.

Copa Airlines will be landing in the region after more than 8 years of combined public relations efforts from the CVB, Fidetur, the tourism secretariats of Jalisco and Nayarit, and with the support of the Mexico Tourism Board.

Susurros del Corazón, a new destination from Auberge Resorts Collection, is planning to open its doors in Punta de Mita in late 2019. This will be a tourist and residential complex overlooking the Banderas Bay and comprised of an ultra-luxury boutique hotel and 30 oceanfront private residences.

“Susurros del Corazón" means Whispers of the Heart, and the guiding ethos is to create a retreat with intimacy and a sense of individuality that resonates with guests on a quiet and personal level.

San Miguel de Allende, has been named the best city in the world for the second consecutive year in the "World's Best Awards 2018", a recognition granted by the famous Travel + Leisure magazine; paying homage to the best tourist destinations and suppliers in the world, according to its readers.

A World Heritage City, it is one of the 3 cities that have received the highest honor as the best city in the world two consecutive years. In the past, only Kyoto and Sydney were awarded # 1 in the world consecutively.

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - One of the most important cultural events of the year in Guadalajara, the birthplace of Mexico's Mariachi and Charro traditions, is the International Mariachi and Charro Festival. In 2018, the festival celebrates 25 years with festivities taking place at various venues in and around the city from August 20 to September 2.

The spirit of Guadalajara's rich culture runs hot in the veins of its Mariachis, the musical icons who serenade the nation's boulevards, public squares, and sidewalks with a brand and style of music that is both unique and legendary. Like the Charros (Mexican Cowboys), the Mariachi is a symbol of nationalism and culture in Mexico, tracing its origins to the Guadalajara region.
