Had someone in my office yesterday who congratulated me for making the list for the top forty most influential people in the tourism industry in Mexico, a list compiled regularly by the magazine Leaders of Mexico. I had been profiled there a couple times before, but didn’t know about this list. Interesting, I’m better known outside of Vallarta for something most people in Vallarta don’t even know I am involved with!
Mexico Boutique Hotels is something we started in 1998, when we were doing a national travel magazine (travel, boating and real estate ). We sold the publication but continued the section in the magazine called Mexico Boutique Hotels by creating a brand and offering public relations, marketing, consultation and reservations. It has since grown into a collection of 50 small hotels (most under 25 rooms, all under 50 rooms) in 26 locations throughout Mexico. We are very selective of who we take, and it has worked out well, becoming the brand in Mexico for quality boutique hotels. And its also come in very handy when we want to take vacations anywhere in Mexico!
