We are still celebrating in Mexico! As you know, this year we are celebrating the fact that 25 years ago RIU opened its first hotel in the country. Today Mexico is the chain’s main international destination with 22 hotels in five Caribbean and Pacific states, where over 9,000 workers are employed. In fact, the workforce is the heart and soul of the company in the country; without their talent and professionalism, this journey would not have been possible.

We want to show you a little bit of the RIU spirit in Mexico through its key players. Here you will find 25 names together with the stories of the people who, alongside all their colleagues, have made it possible for us to celebrate this great milestone.

Thank you so much to them all! Here’s to another 25 years of making dreams come true!
