The site of JOYA by Cirque du Soleil – launched late last year by Grupo Vidanta and already one of Mexico’s fastest growing tourist attractions – served as the backdrop for Mexico’s government leaders to share their vision for the future of international tourism growth in Mexico.
Pena Nieto praised the investment of Grupo Vidanta and noted that Mexico needs more success stories like Grupo Vidanta and founder Daniel Chavez Moran, so that more Mexican people can find opportunity for personal fulfillment.
Grupo Vidanta recently celebrated the grand opening of its newest luxury resort, The Grand Mayan Puerto Penasco, and Vidanta Golf – already the largest operator of golf courses in Mexico – will add a new premier golf course for visitors in The Greg Norman Golf Course at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta in 2015.
Said Grupo Vidanta founder Daniel Chavez Moran, “Mexico is a place for opportunities. With over 40 years of experience as a driver of Mexican tourism, Grupo Vidanta has learned the best results for Mexico are achieved when we work collaboratively to recruit the world’s top brands in travel and entertainment as partners and create unique vacation dreams in Mexico that rival that of any destination in the world. That strategy has allowed Grupo Vidanta to sustain annual visitation growth of 15 percent at our developments, serve more than half a million foreign visitors, and achieve revenues of nearly $700 million each year.”
Vidanta Golf is the largest operator of golf courses in Mexico, the real estate division has built and sold more than 2,000 vacation luxury homes, and the company is responsible for developing Mexico’s first privately built and owned airport, Mar de Cortes International Airport in Puerto Penasco.
Now retired, Chavez Moran founded Grupo Vidanta in 1974 after developing his first hotel, Paraiso Mazatlan, and grew the Grupo Vidanta to include expert practices in design, development, construction and operation for many of Mexico and Latin America’s top luxury beach resorts, megaresorts and hotels.
Under Chavez Moran’s leadership, Grupo Vidanta diversified an influence in tourism infrastructure to include the largest collection of golf courses operated in Mexico, construction and sale of more than 2,000 vacation homes, and the first privately built and owned airport in Mexico, Mar de Cortes International Airport in Puerto Penasco.
