News from Mexico…

As of this date, there is no Coronavirus in all Yucatan Peninsula and South East Mexico.

There are no travel restrictions, this means that the Cancun Resort area is clear. There are to this date only 7 cases of the virus in all of Mexico. I will be departing on my own business trip next week.

I will be travelling along the Rivera Maya, heading towards Merida where the annual Mexican Travel Market called Tianguis is to take place.

I will be flying with TUI, their fabulous Dreamliner flight London/Cancun. Arriving late afternoon to be met by our Ground Agents Amstar.

First stop Paradise! The 9 room boutique property Kin Sol Soleil please see our website Then on to the supreme luxury of Secrets Akumal, part of the AM resort Group. Last year Secrets opened their Mallorca property Hotel Vilamill, taking an iconic 50/60’s jewel and giving it the Secrets wrap. Secrets at Akumal (a still unspoilt area of this coastline) is under the expert management of Daniel Mellado an icon in the Mexican Hotel Industry. Onwards towards Merida…where it all began for me so many years ago my career was created under the tutelage of the Barbachano Family.

Chichen Itza! So many myths, so many words, so many stories, all of them true! Again for me it is “coming home”….this magical place should only be enjoyed over time, it can never really be seen and absorbed on a day trip!

The Hotel Mayaland is a masterpiece of art and history, built originally by the Barbachano family.

Merida! This lovely baroque “White City“ as it is known is another “home from home” for me. Many old famous Hotels, one of my favourites being Los Aluxes. In a great central location. Good Food. Simple Mayan hospitality. “Su Casa en Merida”.

Amigo Yuacatan: this great Ground Agent DMC. The owner and my good friend Don Jorge Escalante is a legend! Born in Merida there is nothing this Agency does not know about the Yucatan and its Mayan history.

Cozumel! Finally..please, please let me have time to visit my beautiful Island……

I will be reporting back on all these destinations upon my return…..


“As of todays’ date 13th March 2020 the TIANGUIS CONFERENCE is postponed to September 2020.
