Riviera Maya: Meetings and Incentive Travel

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Nestled between white sand beaches and verdant jungles along the eastern coast of Mexico, Riviera Maya is one of the world’s most beautiful and desirable destinations. There are multiple reasons to choose Riviera Maya as the ideal destination for a meeting or group event or incentive travel. Even with the variety of resorts and meeting spaces to choose from, every location showcases the abundant luxury, history and natural resources of Riviera Maya, while catering to the specific needs of a group function.

Riviera Maya has a meeting inventory that can accommodate anything from small executive retreats to conferences that can utilize the upwards of 27,000 square feet of meeting space at one property. Not only does the destination offer superlative hotel facilities with a wide variety of meeting spaces, room blocks and event options, they also include all the necessities and luxuries that create successful meetings; experienced meetings professionals and planners are available to provide materials, equipment, and any services groups may require.

Riviera Maya also takes significant pride in protecting the environment and creating sustainable meetings; just a few green features include ecologically-minded resorts that respect and work with the environment, protection for the flora and fauna and programs for water and energy saving.

Hosting a meeting in Mexico is an efficient and cost effective way to provide a reasonable destination meeting to both stakeholders and attendees. Cancun International Airport hosts many direct flight options from hubs across the U.S. and Canada with more added every month, and the entirety of Riviera Maya is easily accessible from the airport. Options are available for every budget and group size, and in certain situations meeting planners can take advantage of special taxes for groups, such as the “Zero Rate” and “Tax Back”. Breakout sessions are also often inexpensive and truly enriching.

Taking advantage of the natural and cultural wealth of Riviera Maya and customized activities can be easily organized for breakout sessions. Exciting options include a jeep rally through the jungle, golfing on PGA professional-designed courses, snorkeling in the Great Mesoamerican Reef (the second largest in the world), visiting one of the many eco-adventure parks, ziplining through the jungle or visiting Playa del Carmen and its exciting glimpse into modern Mexican culture. Meeting participants can also enjoy a day trip to Tulum or Coba, two Mayan archaeological sites open to the public, or spend a day relaxing at one of the region’s exquisite spas, offering rejuvenation and relaxation with traditional and modern treatments.
