Yucatán Tourism


The state of Yucatán, often confused with the Yucatán Peninsula and overlooked by North American travelers, was seeking to raise awareness of its distinctive cultural experiences, historical significance, innovative cuisine, and unique accommodations. 


Create an integrated marketing and PR program to educate tour operators, travel agents, and top-tier media on the destination’s assets focusing on its natural resources, archaeological sites, historic hotels and haciendas, and charming and design-forward capital city of Mérida.
