Travel agents in Mexico City, Toluca, and Puebla updated on what’s new in the Riviera Nayarit

  • The CVB and the AHMBB increased the presence of this tourist destination in the heart of Mexico and boosted the arrival of visitors for the upcoming summer season.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Banderas Bay Hotel and Motel Association strengthened their presence in the domestic market with a productive promotional visit to Mexico City, Toluca, and Puebla.

Before the health regulations triggered by COVID-19 in Mexico (currently in place) began in the first week in March, this traditional tour was able to reach more than 250 travel agents and meeting planners with an eye on the upcoming summer vacations.

The tour began with a breakfast presentation for 80 travel agents, among them a considerable group of Virtuoso agents who were able to learn more about the destination’s attractions and new hotel openings. They were pleasantly surprised about the quantity and quality of the properties.

The destination’s hotels also presented their news and promotions, among them: Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta; Paradise Village; Occidental Nuevo Vallarta, Hard Rock Vallarta; Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit; Marival Resorts; Dreams Villamagna; Hoteles Riu; Hoteles, Decameron; Krystal Reflect,; Hotel Matlali; Casa María Bucerías; W Punta de Mita; Palladium, The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort; Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita; Palmasola; El Pueblito Sayulita, and the newest hotels opening soon like the Conrad Playa Mita and the One & Only Mandarina.

The team offered a breakfast for 40 agents followed by a lunch for 25 meeting planners; the events were attended by DMC VTA Vallarta. The tour also included a breakfast for 50 agents in Toluca, ending with an event for 60 travel agents in Puebla.

The Riviera Nayarit is becoming even more top-of-mind in the southcentral and southwest regions of Mexico; this area is home to 30% of the country’s population, making it a very important focus for attracting visitors to the destination.

These actions covered important and varied segments including luxury, corporate travel, romance, and leisure, and the agencies stressed their clients’ interest in traveling to the destination once the COVID-19 emergency has passed.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) continue to work together to advance the region, strengthening its promotion and helping position Mexico’s Pacific Treasure on the domestic map with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit via the Tourism Promotion Trust (Fiprotur).
