People are looking for a variety of accommodation options, a more personal travel experience and local information that will assist in their trip planning. The Riviera Maya as a destination is also changing and we want to make sure people have access to new activity information.” stated Kay Walten, the owner and business developer for Loco Gringo.
The new features provide more up to date activity information, categorized accommodation options that segregate by budget, location and amenities, larger photos of the area, an overview of Riviera Maya cities, tours, and beach areas. Ms. Walten has incorporated visitor ‘travel finds’ and recommendations to continue the personal service and diligence that Loco Gringo has provided travelers since 1996.
The new categorization of accommodations and the additional photo galleries enable online travelers to book their accommodations quickly without having to search through the thousands of options that are available. City guides, including the new Riviera Maya Event Calendar, enables visitors to choose where they wish to spend their time. It is also a great way to find out about local events and become more involved in the communities that they are visiting which enriches their vacation experience.
