Club Med to Open Cancun Yucatan Resort in November 11

After 12 months and $24 million in renovations, a new Club Med Cancun Yucatan will open on Nov. 11 as the latest addition to more than 80 resorts worldwide. There will be a strong emphasis on the discovery of the Yucatan region, new programs for families, upscale amenities and the Jade Villa, a concierge building for luxury travelers. No longer an adults-only resort, Club Med Cancun Yucatan invites families to discover the Yucatan Peninsula. With special facilities dedicated to children and teens, families may choose among a variety of excursions, daily activities, and group lessons including water-skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, flying trapeze and tennis. A Mini-Club Med, catering to children four to 10 years old, will launch the last week of December.
