With its white sandy beaches, endless sunsets, tropical breezes, overhanging palm trees, and unforgettably delicious food and cocktails, the Riviera Maya region is one of our favorite getaway spots of all time. It’s a simple hop on a flight from the states to Cancun and there are tons of different locale types to choose from. From manicured beachside to wild jungles, tiny villas to five star hotels, there’s something for everyone in this area of Mexico.

Hold up your both of your hands and count your fingers, because that is how many events seasoned pro Alison Events has done in The Riviera Maya. Yes you counted correctly, she has done ten weddings. Ole! She has been fortunate enough to have done five weddings at Be Tulum alone (and five others in the Riviera Maya area). This small and quaint venue gives you the feeling like you’re staying at an old friend’s house—one with amazing taste, sitting right on the ocean. This particular event was for blushing bride Olivia and dapper groom Pete. Olivia and Pete went for a colorful yet understated celebration after getting hitched on the beach.

The Report

Calling all culture vultures! Raise your hand if you want to host a gathering at a venue where the mantra is "we keep costs down so travelers can spend their money on more adventurous or cultural pursuits". We do, we do!

Stu Waddell, the design genius behind said mantra and new hotspot Drift, has a resume chock full of experience in the travel and resort world. Early this year he realized his dream when he opened the rustic ranch doors of Drift.  Stu saw the magic in the traditional Colonial town of San Jose Del Cabo. He fell in love with the historic downtown art district, replete with charming galleries, live music and a delicious foodie scene. He decided he would open Drift, the first location in the Historic Art District, and the prototype for a series of hotels that fill a niche between boutique and youth hostel. The concept is to cater to the independent traveler and is inspired by the idea of “traveling without a destination”. Drift is designed to promote social interaction with a pared down, do-it-yourself atmosphere. The rooms are minimalistic with design accents inspired by industrial urban lofts and Baja ranch architecture.

We fell in love with how much Stu emphatically embraces the community culture of San Jose Del Cabo, the locals and the magic of gathering together. Something that can get lost in today's online world. When we chatted with this passionate and caring entrepreneur we immediately knew that his concept and gem of a property embodies the spirit of the ideal gathering destination. Not just because of it's beauty, but also for it's manifesto and what it stands for.
