Abercrombie & Kent opens DMC in Mexico

Luxury operator Abercrombie & Kent has opened its newest destination management company (DMC) in Mexico.

It said the launch “solidifies A&K’s commitment to providing exceptional travel experiences” in Latin America and coincides with the company’s plans to open a property in Mexico later this year.

A&K veteran Graeme Bull will lead the opening of the Mexican DMC, having recently overseen the successful launch of the company’s Colombian DMC.

Before Colombia, Bull was based in A&K’s UK office, where he spearheaded Latin America and Indian subcontinent product offerings for A&K and sister brand Cox & Kings.

Bull said: “[Mexico] offers a wealth of cultural, historical, and natural wonders that perfectly align with our discerning travellers’ desires.

“With our new DMC and upcoming properties in the Yucatan, we are well-positioned to craft extraordinary journeys that showcase the very best of Mexico.

“We are hoping to have our doors open and receiving clients on the ground, through the DMC, by the end of the year, the property will follow.”

A&K’s expansion in Mexico follows the recent announcement of its plans to launch a luxury riverboat in Peru next year.

Rebecca Osman, senior vice-president of A&K’s DMCs, added: “Mexico has long been a beloved destination for our guests, and the opening of our DMC here is a natural progression in our mission to deliver unrivalled travel experiences worldwide.

“With Graeme at the helm and our upcoming properties in the Yucatan, we are excited to offer our guests even more opportunities to discover the rich culture, stunning landscapes, and warm hospitality of Mexico.”

The Mexico DMC will offer services, including customised itineraries, exclusive access to experiences and 24/7 on-the-ground support.
