After more than a decade of speculation, Sandals Resorts International will officially be expanding to Mexico.

Travel Agent chatted with Adam Stewart, CEO of Sandals, and learned that the Jamaica-based company will be expanding out of the Caribbean for the first time in the form of a Sandals resort in the Riviera Maya.

Stewart told us he expects ground to break by the end of the year. Stewart says it will be a new build and will be located "further north" of Playa del Carmen.
