In Incentive Travel, Special Events

Playa del Carmen – With white sand beaches, turquoise waters and a laid-back vibe, this Mexican beach community in the heart of Riviera Maya and 45 minutes south of Cancun is a dream destination.

Beyond the gorgeous resorts and white sand, there are so many things to do. Snorkel through the coral reef in the Caribbean Sea, visit the Tulum archeological site, and swim in a cenote, then explore a limestone cave and take a jungle walk.  Spend some time on the famous 5th Avenue, a pedestrian walkway lined with shops, restaurants and bars that runs through the heart of town.

Our client, a third-generation, family-owned business, chose the Hilton Playa del Carmen for its recent incentive program.  Located right at 5th Avenue, attendees could be off property exploring in minutes, a benefit few other hotels in the Playa del Carmen area of this quality can offer.  The right amount of leisure matched with a wide range of optional activities from extreme ziplining to a relaxing massage made sure every attendee was thrilled with their time in paradise.

From its tempting new Mejorada Mixology Lobby Bar to the gorgeous beach to flawless grounds designed for special events, the newly renovated and rebranded Hilton Playa del Carmen was an idyllic setting to celebrate and thank our client’s best customers. Starting with private check-in and closing with the final night beach party, each experience was handled with care and exceeded high expectations. Most importantly, an attentive and endearing team supported our client’s guests at every turn. IVI DMC Enterprises was again with us on the ground to help make the magic happen.
