Mexican Luxury Getaway Debuts At South by Southwest

Mexico brings luxury spa experience to Austin’s SXSW festival

The Mexico Tourism Board is showcasing the highlights of a Mexican luxury getaway at this week’s South by Southwest (SXSW) festival and conference series.  In partnership with Forbes, Mexico will be on-site to celebrate the “30 Under 30” panel, which recognizes the most creative and entrepreneurial business pioneers today.

Mexico Tourism Board Chief Marketing Officer, Gerardo Llanes said, “Mexico has some of the most luxurious spas, hotels and resorts in the world. We are very pleased to be partnering with the institution that is Forbes to showcase the very best Mexico has to offer.”

The exclusive event will include the indulgences and flavors of a Mexico spa experience, from head and shoulder massages to savory Patron-infused canapes and desserts.  Exotic Mexican flowers and relaxing lounge furniture will transport guests to the extravagance of Mexico’s rich luxury offering.

The Riviera Maya is one of Mexico’s leading luxury destinations, with ten of Mexico’s sixteen AAA Five Diamond properties located in that region. Other premier luxury destinations include celebrity favorite Los Cabos, the beach resorts of the Riviera Nayarit and Mexico City which is home to several world class luxury hotels and two of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants according to the San Pellegrino rankings.

Renowned luxury travel network Virtuoso has ranked Mexico number two in the world in luxury destinations, second only to Italy, and has also recognized Mexico as the world’s number one spa destination.  The Mexico Tourism Board was also recognized as “Virtuoso Tourism Board of the Year” in 2012.

Mexico has continued to attract a record-breaking number of tourists from around the world.  With a rich cultural showcase and UNESCO World Heritage cuisine, the destination offers an experience unlike any other in the world.
