Why a Mexican villa is Perfect for Your Next Big Event

Whether it’s a family reunion, team building getaway, or even a wedding, the venue you choose will make or break your event. For that reason, it’s essential you pick the right place.

Your local conference center is fine for a run-of-the-mill event, but to truly wow your guests you need something very special. Here are five reasons why a Mexican villa is perfect for your next event, plus five villas that are ideal for any special occasion.


Five reasons why a Mexican villa is perfect for your next event

Elite amenities

When you’re looking to impress a potential business partner or make your special day perfect, you want to be positive your venue has the very best facilities money can buy. Villas by Journey Mexico ensures that every single property in our portfolio comes with top-of-the-range facilities and amenities. Each villa has different features — and we will find the perfect one for your needs — but you can be assured that your villa will impress and delight throughout your stay.

Amenities range from sweeping infinity pools, hot tubs, and wet bars to tennis courts, basketball courts, and yoga studios. If you’ve got clients to impress, pick a villa with a media room and plenty of comfy seats.

Endless activities

Keeping your guests entertained is a major headache for a planner. But, if you choose a Mexican villa for your event, there will be an endless list of activities right on your doorstep. If you have an adventurous group, why not head to Los Cabos or the Yucatan Peninsula to swim with whale sharks? Choose Puerto Escondido for endless surfing opportunities or opt for Mexico City for luxurious, gourmet cuisine.

If your event falls during the winter period, the sprawling Bay of Banderas (home to Puerto Vallarta and Punta Mita) plays host to leaping humpback whales; a spectacle sure to impress any guest.


Beautiful weather

When you have so many things to plan, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your hard work will be ruined by a drizzly day. With its ideal location in the world, Mexico has numerous destinations blessed with bright blue skies.

Locations such as Acapulco and the Riviera Maya offer year-round warm to hot temperatures. Winter is the most comfortable time of year with average highs of around 82°F (28°C) and lows around 70°F (21°C). Summer temperatures are, on average, marginally higher, but that just provides more opportunities to enjoy a dip in the villa’s pool.


Value for money

When you’ve got a budget (no matter how large or small), you’re always on the lookout for value for money. A Mexican villa offers that, particularly when you book with Villas by Journey Mexico. With years of experience in the industry and lots of local knowledge, we have managed to forge excellent connections with the owners of the best villas in Mexico.

Through these, we can offer the lowest prices around, which means you will struggle to find better prices anywhere else. On top of that, we are in constant contact with villa owners to secure the latest deals. Head to our special offers page to see our latest money-saving deals.


Convenient locations

Travel is another major issue for an event planner, but not one you need to worry about with our villas. The majority are located within easy reach of an international airport with flights arriving from across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, as well as many other major destinations.

If you need help with transportation once in Mexico, we have the experience and knowledge to get everyone to their destination, hassle-free. Speak to our expert Travel Planners who can arrange everything from a private car pick-up to an extra-special private jet.
