A&K confirms DMC expansion into Mexico, Yucatan property

Abercrombie & Kent veteran Graeme Bull to head up new operation

Abercrombie & Kent has opened its latest Destination Management Company (DMC) in Mexico, as foreshadowed exclusively by LATTE in April. The strategic move 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 over the coming year.

Leading the opening of the Mexico DMC is Graeme Bull, an A&K veteran who recently oversaw the successful opening of the company’s Colombia DMC. Prior to his role in Colombia, Bull was based in A&K’s UK office where he spearheaded Latin America and Indian Subcontinent product offerings for both A&K and Cox & Kings. His extensive experience and deep understanding of the region is poised to elevate A&K’s presence in Mexico to match the level of excellence of A&K’s DMCs globally.

Bull expressed his enthusiasm for this new venture, saying he was thrilled to introduce A&K’s “unparalleled level of service and expertise to Mexico”.

“This country offers a wealth of cultural, historical, and natural wonders that perfectly align with our discerning travellers’ desires. With our new DMC and an upcoming property 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, with the property to follow,” Bull said.

A&K’s expansion in Mexico follows the recent announcement of its plans to launch a luxury riverboat in Peru next year – also flagged first by LATTE. These developments underscore the company’s unwavering commitment to providing immersive and transformative travel experiences in Latin America.

Rebecca Osman, Senior Vice President of A&K’s DMCs, said “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 property 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.”

A&K’s Mexico DMC will offer a wide range of services, including customised itineraries, exclusive access to unique experiences, and 24/7 on-the-ground support.

The company’s upcoming property in the Yucatan will provide guests with luxurious accommodations, exceptional amenities, and immersive activities that showcase the region’s vibrant culture and natural beauty. As with all A&K’s destinations, the Mexico DMC will be committed to sustainable tourism practices and supporting local communities through its philanthropic arm, Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP).
