Fernando Garcia Zalvidea, president of Real Resorts, told Travel Agent about ongoing discussions to expand the Mexico resort company to Costa Rica with plans for a 250-room resort.
Discussions are only preliminary and no time frame has been set. Real Resorts, which currently has properties in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, is also on the verge of inking two new deals in Mexico, Zalvidea said. A deal to build two new properties in Tulum, the hot new destination in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, should be finalized in the next 45 to 60 days. Once the deal is set, the 400-room Gran Tulum Royal and the 250-room Royal Tulum could be built within 13 months. Real Resorts is also looking to close a deal in the same time frame for a 250-room Royal Los Cabos, also scheduled for completion within 13 months.
