1. The pent-up demand from the Canadian market, in the wake of eased travel restrictions, has taken the travel industry by storm. What can you tell us about the uptick you’re seeing from Canada?

2. What resorts and / or categories are particularly popular with Canadian travellers right now, and what’s your message for Canadian travel agents to pass on to their clients?

3. What should agent be aware of to enhance the experience for Canadian travellers?
“AMR Collection add-on packages are extremely popular currently, with agents looking to provide their guests something additional to make their vacation even more memorable. For example AMR Collection offers ‘Pampered to a Tee’ where clients can treat themselves to a luxury golf and spa experience at select resorts in Mexico and Panama. Agents can add this in advance off travel and clients can also make the reservations in advance. This is a win-win for agents and their clients.”
4 . We’re coming up on family travel season. What resorts should Canadian travellers take another look at when considering their vacation?
“Family and luxury resorts can remain synonymous, and families also look for something ‘beyond the beach’.

At Dreams Bahia Mita, you can explore nearby sights such as Los Arcos National Park or Marietas Island. During a stay at Dreams Tulum afternoons can be spent on adventures to local family-friendly attractions like the ancient Mayan ruins and the Xel-Ha natural aquapark.”
