A Year to Remember
According to Mayan prophecy, the year 2012 is expected to bring the dawn of a new era and there’s expected to be plenty of celebrating throughout many destinations, particularly in Mexico. “We are located in the mecca of the Mayan civilization, a culture that marked 2012 as a year of transformation,” says Abanzua. “Because of that, The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun has introduced several new programs, such as overnight packages featuring destination experiences, and amazing culinary journeys for 2012.”
The hotel is also offering a Comfort You package, which is available through Dec. 31, 2012. Priced from $359 per night, this package includes accommodations, a $100 resort credit per night and daily buffet breakfast for two at El Cafe Mexicano.
“Cancun is a destination that caters to families, couples and everyone in the middle. It’s ideal for anyone wanting a one-of-a-kind experience, and for those wanting to eat deliciously well, too. Travel agents can rest assured that their clients are being taken care of here,” promises Abanzua.
