Mexico is rich in “wow factor” venues. At this year´s Virtuoso Travel Week, the Mexican government announced that it is opening many of its most prized cultural and archeological landmarks to VIP groups looking for once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
The list of Mexico’s World Heritage Sites, plazas, Colonial buildings and museums is long and varied, and you’ll find show stopping backdrops for everything from the most intimate cocktail to a performance for thousands. Here is a short list of high-impact special events venues in Mexico that are ideal for an exclusive private experience.
Mexico National Anthropology Museum, Mexico City
This expansive collection of Mexico’s most treasured artifacts is housed in an equally impressive architectural complex, and it is considered to be one of the best museums in the world. The National Anthropology Museum is a natural for cocktails or social events, and an on-site theatre offers space for presentations and awards ceremonies.
Teotihuacan, Mexico City Metropolitan Area
This majestic complex of pyramids was built in 100 AD, and eventually grew to be a city of 125,000 people. Located just 25 miles outside of Mexico City, this mysterious and awe-inspiring site could be a marvelous venue for a late lunch under brilliant blue skies.
Chichen Itza, Yucatan Peninsula
In 2010, this Mayan site was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and Elton John has delighted music fans in Chichen Itza’s concert hall. Your guests will experience the thrill of discovery when they get access to newly discovered buildings and areas of the site heretofore closed to the public.
Monte Alban, Oaxaca
Monte Alban is the crowning achievement of the Zapotec empire, which reached its height in the southern Mexican state Oaxaca around 500 A.D. The ceremonial and civil buildings are built on a hill overlooking the state’s colonial capital city, allowing for an unparalleled view of one of Mexico’s most dramatic valleys. Tantalize guests with a starlit, catered dinner of traditional Oaxacan delicacies.
Palenque—lush, majestic and verdant—is considered to be one of the finest examples of Mayan architecture. The towering stone buildings and commanding jungle will inspire and energize your group.
