With the incredible support of our clients, suppliers, and partners, 2015 was an exciting year of growth and innovation for Journey Mexico!
Pushing ahead after a very eventful 2014, we redoubled our efforts to share the very best of Mexico’s vibrant culture, diverse wildlife, jaw dropping landscapes, and off the beaten path adventures with our sophisticated guests! In addition to offering new and innovative private day-tours in Mexico City, and developing over 10 new exciting itineraries, we responded to overwhelming demand for luxury villas and private residences by a complete overhaul and relaunch of Journey Mexico luxury private villas.
Our villa program was created specifically to cater to the growing demand of private rentals for those looking for stunning accommodations and flawless service in customized vacation planning. In June, Sean Emmerton joined our team as Director of the Journey Mexico Villa Program; and by August, Sean unveiled our new exclusive portfolio of luxury villas featured on a new website.
Simultaneously, our Marketing team launched an Exclusive Offers Program providing our clients with a little-extra something! The Exclusive Offer Program currently features over 20 hotels that offer a complimentary 4th night, or a complimentary gourmet dinner in a private location. The offers are valid only through Journey Mexico and are available throughout the coming year!
In 2015, we welcomed a total of 14 new staff members: Ana Belem and Cristhian in Mexico City Operations; Brenda to Groups Coordination; Paulina U. and Paola as Administrative Assistants (PV); Hugo and Edgar to our Technology team; Alma and Laura in Supplier Relations; and Christian, Judit, and Mercedes in Travel Planning.
Our Mexico City office is thriving. Just a little over one year since opening, our progress includes a fully staffed office including travel planners, marketing staff, an operations manager, and an airport supervisor. We’ve also developed close relationships in the city which has enhanced our ability to offer insider accesses to museums, archaeological sites, restaurants, people, specialist guides in the city, and more.
In other news, we’ve expanded our press coverage this year to include: WendyPerrin.com, Travel Weekly, Men’s Journal, Country and Townhouse, TIME’s Money Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, Travel Age West, , Matador Network, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel Pulse, Trip Advisor, How to Spend it, Forbes, and Town & Country Magazine. You can read the features here.
