Top Tips for a Company Retreat in Mexico City

Expert Advice for a Retreat in Mexico City

  1. Day of the Dead: Plan a company Retreat in Mexico around the Días de Los Muertos festival (a week-long annual festival at Halloween). This world-renowned holiday unites the living and the deceased and is not only a colourful multicultural celebration but an event showcasing Mexico's profound respect for the cycle of life. Music, exhibits and lively festivities fill the streets and culminate in a final Parade. 
  2. Weather: With year-round moderate temperatures, anytime is a good time to host a company retreat in Mexico City 
  3. Location, location, location: As a diverse city, each neighborhood brings a unique flavor and experience. For those looking for culture and upscale amenities, the neighborhoods of Polanco, Centro Historico, Condesa, Roma, and Reforma are best while strictly business travelers may prefer Santa Fe. 
  4. Foodies: In the past few years Mexico City has established itself as a thriving culinary destination. From fusion restaurants to Michelin Star taco stands and fine dining establishments. 
  5. Mexico VAT exempt program: The Mexican government introduced a VAT exemption program to encourage business travel. This incentive program allows foreign groups to host a meeting anywhere in Mexico and save the 16% VAT on rooms and meeting related expenses like AV. This saving adds up and makes hosting a retreat in Mexico City very attractive. 

Any Other Considerations for an Offsite in Mexico City

Over the last few decades, Mexico City has taken steps to improve the safety of the city and restore its reputation. While the well-worn tourist neighborhoods are relatively safe there is always a risk of petty crime (pickpocketing, vandalism), it is advised to keep within the tourist hubs especially after dark, and remain vigilant at all times. 

Mexico has legalized same-sex marriage and is known to be welcoming to LGBTQ+ and minority communities.

In her spare time, Amanda loves exploring the great outdoors either on the road with the sunroof down, or on the ATV trails near her hometown of Keswick, Ontario. Indoors, she's known for being a bit of a 'sushi savant', and kicking back on the couch with the latest Reality TV with her dog, Rebel.
