We headed to the Cancun Travel Mart where Carlos Gosselin, president of the Cancun and Puerto Morelos Hotels Association, said that this 30th reunion of the tourism industry of Quintana Roo is very important as more than 30,000 business meetings took place last year. Benito Juarez, mayor of Cancun said, “Tourism is the only industry we have today, one we have seen grow exponentially in recent years.” And Carlos Joaquin Gonzalez, governor of the state of Quintana Roo, also touted the influence of the tourism industry when he said, “Tourism has become one of the most important sectors for Mexico’s economy making 8.7 percent of the GDP.”
Now, if you’re wondering what the allure to head to Mexico is? Well, that’s easy: it’s crystal blue beaches, top-notch service (as was our experience at Le Blanc Resort & Spa), fabulous cuisine that you’ll notice in our images of the Chef’s Table Dinner at the Ritz-Carlton Cancun, fabulous spa options—both the Le Blanc Spa and the Fiesta Americana Grande’s Gem Spa spoiled us during our stay—and lots of culture to take in. So, whether your clients are foodies, spa-lovers, or like to relax in luxury, there’s something here to fit their needs. Take a glimpse of our unfiltered images for a peek of what Cancun has to offer.
