Mexico - Playa del Carmen

Location information:
The Riviera Maya is a 130 kilometre stretch of Caribbean coastline between the resort city of Cancun in the north and the Mayan ruins of Tulum in the south. Other communities and towns that are part of this famous Mexican beach vacation destination include Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel Island, Puerto Aventuras, and Akumal. Being a part of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Riviera Maya has more to offer than its beaches. There is a rich history with many cultural influences and a diverse population. This combination has developed a cosmopolitan feel to the area with a focus on food, activities, shopping and of course, the beach life.

Accommodation:
The Ocean Coral & Turquesa Hotel in Riviera Maya is directly on a white-sand beach in Puerto Morelos, approximately 35 km from Playa del Carmen and 18 km from the Cancun airport. A modern spa offers beauty and massage treatments, plus an indoor pool, hot tubs, steam rooms and a gym. There are also 4 outdoor pools. All 591 rooms at the hotel include bathrobes and slippers in room (upon arrival), concierge service, turn-down service, a Resort Credit of US$250 in discount coupons to be used towards the cost of various services and products and a bottle of wine in room upon arrival. There are elevators on site. Ocean Coral & Turquesa boasts theme restaurants, meeting rooms, Despacio Spa Centre, the Dive It! Diving Centre and a wide variety of entertainment and sports. Meals are served in 9 refined restaurants, including Italian, Asian and Caribbean options. There are also poolside snack bars and a lobby cocktail bar.

Climate:
The Riviera Maya, which begins just south of Cancun, enjoys a warm tropical climate year-round. The average Riviera Maya, Mexico temperature is around 27 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit), with seasonal fluctuations of 4 to 6 degrees.

Arts and Culture:
The Riviera Maya is one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. An expansive coral reef system extending just off the coast is home to a dizzying array of marine life including colorful tropical fish, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the Riviera Maya are not limited to the ocean. You can also go snorkeling and cave diving in the many cenotes (underground sink holes) that are unique to this Yucatan Peninsula. Adventurous travelers should venture off the beaten path to visit traditional Maya villages where you will witness the traditions and culture of this fascinating region and sample the local cuisine. A few hours inland, the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza are arguably the best restored and most impressive of the Yucatán Maya archaeological sites.Consider a day trip via ferry from Playa del Carmen to the Caribbean island of Cozumel where you will enjoy world-class scuba diving, snorkeling and aquatic sports, or, simply spend the day relaxing on the beach.

Cuisine:
Most of us are familiar with Mexican food such as tacos, quesadillas, tamales and borittos. but there are many other options. Mexican cuisine relies heavily on corn and chili peppers, but savour the variety of spices, fresh ingredients and delicious, fresh-from-the-sea fish and shellfish used.

Shopping:
In the Riviera Maya, there are plenty of places to hunt out a bargain or two. From cloth paintings to coral jewellrey, semi-precious stones to delicate wood carvings, you are bound to return home with lots of little treasures to remind you of your time spent in the Riviera Maya. As well as local markets, however, there are also plenty of shopping malls selling designer and luxury brands to keep the big spenders at bay.

USA - San Diego

There’s nothing more rewarding than planning a meeting that people want to attend. With legendary weather, beautiful beaches and friendly, laid-back vibe, San Diego is a destination that draws big crowds and big thinking. See what San Diego is all about…  San Diego earned a Top 5 spot on the Cvent 2017 Top 50 Meeting Destinations list! This industry-specific ranking is based off of many factors including meeting and event booking activity as well as the number of unique venues in the destination. San Diego continued to hold its place in the Top 5 with new inventory coming online in the coming months. Considering San Diego has significantly less meeting space at its primary convention center compared to other top destinations, it’s rewarding to see San Diego rank so highly–in part, due to its diverse offerings of meeting and conference hotels, award-winning convention center, unique regions, and exceptional attractions and third party venues.
