The Posadas Hotel Group operates over 115 hotels in Mexico and Latin America, including the well-established brands: Fiesta Americana Hotels and Live Aqua. The company is based in Mexico City with decades of experience hosting large international groups. Which means, meeting and incentive planners working with these brands in Mexico are working with a local. This is their home and they know it best. That’s a significant advantage in an industry where attendees are seeking “authentic, insider experiences” built into any type and any size of group program.
Five upscale hotels in Mexico’s most popular destinations make up the Fiesta Americana Grand Meetings Mexico collection. These five properties provide the meeting planner with all of the infrastructure, product and service levels they need to create a successful event in Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos.
In Cancun, they include: Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Resort & Spa, Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun All Inclusive and Live Aqua Cancun. The west coast resorts are: Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos Golf & Spa and Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta.
The first thing you notice when you visit these five properties is their individual identities. Each is specific to its environment, designed to celebrate the local culture and landscape. Most importantly, the Grand Meetings Mexico hotels maximize your encounter with the destination, emphasizing the mantra: “Grand Settings. Grand Gatherings. Grand Experiences.”
That uniquely local attitude extends not just through the design. It pervades every aspect of your meeting or incentive from the fine dining cuisine to themed gala events and a wide variety of group activities both day and night.
Adding to the value, all-inclusive pricing is available at all five properties, either built-in or as an add-on package, to help planners maximize ROI.
At all of the Grand Meetings Mexico properties, the service culture is buoyed with the hospitality you would expect when visiting someone’s home.

Speaking about the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach, he says, “The hotel and spa are magnificent, the quality of the food and beverage was excellent, and the service of the staff was superb. Our convention ran smoothly which only happens when excellent people are coordinating the program.”
