“It is with great pride that we welcome Emporio Hotels & Resorts, Buenaventura Grand Hotel & Spa and Aak-Bal to our network of affiliated resorts,” said Ricardo Montaudon, president, RCI Latin America. “We are committed to forming new alliances with resorts to offer the best options to all our members.

Known for service and elegant accommodations, the Emporio hotels are located in several popular Mexican tourist destinations. These additions to the list of RCI affiliates cater to business professionals and group travelers with a taste for exquisite cuisine. Several Emporio resorts are now accessible for exchange through RCI in destinations including: Acapulco, Mexico City, Ixtapa, Veracruz, Zacatecas and Nayarit Riviera.
Buenaventura Grand Hotel & SPA is a perfect option for family trips. This newly affiliated resort is located in the popular tourist destination of Puerto Vallarta, a location chosen for its beautiful beaches and historic downtown area. This all-inclusive resort offers recreation for all ages. Guests can enjoy a variety of classes including diving, aqua aerobics, dance, and cooking, or enjoy kayak tours, water polo or themed nights.
