Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
PHILADELPHIA — AMResorts is well on its way to achieving 100 all-inclusive properties by 2020, a growth strategy that was outlined at Tianguis Turistico Mexico 2017 last week.
According to company executives, the company plans to unveil 10 new openings by 2020 in Mexico alone. This represents a record number of consecutive openings in a single country.
The AMResorts portfolio currently includes more than 50 properties across its six award-winning brands, 28 of which are in Mexico.
“As a nation of many culture-rich destinations with room to grow and strong economic figures to back it, Mexico will continue to yield significant investment opportunities well beyond AMResorts’ development plans,” said Gonzalo del Peon, AMResorts President. “Mexico as a whole has proven to be resilient against ups and downs, welcoming 94.6 million international visitors in 2016, up 8.6% since the previous year.”
Next year will see several new builds throughout Mexico, including the 120-suite Zoëtry Chamela Costalegre Mexico, and Breathless Playa del Carmen Resort & Spa, perfect for adults with its 500 modern suites.
By 2019, AMResorts will have over 60 resorts, representing more than 24,000 rooms throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. Its footprint will span 30 destinations in 11 countries, including entry into the new destinations of Aruba and Puerto Rico.
