Millennials in Travel Exclusive FAM to NIZUC Resort & Spa

Millennials in Travel members joined Bennett Mercado this past June to discover the Mexican spirit and Mayan soul of NIZUC Resort & Spa.  Our very own Officer of Events for San Diego, Aimee Leon recounts the experience....

The group arrived in style as we had a private transfer waiting for us at the Cancun airport to take us on the short journey to the resort. NIZUC is located just 15 mins from the Cancun airport yet it feels very secluded as it is on a peninsula and you can’t see any other resorts nearby.

We all had fabulous Ocean View Junior Suites, which had floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto a beautiful terrace featuring a private plunge pool!

We had a jam packed itinerary but it allowed us to experience the resort as well as a little bit of the culture and heritage of Mexico.


The first evening we got to know each other the best way possible – over tequila tasting in the Havana Lounge – followed by dinner in the amazing Indochine, which is the resorts Asian Fusion cuisine restaurant.


The next day, after a full site inspection, we had ceviche at “Ni” followed by a day at the spa and unwound with the Nizuc Hydrotherapy experience as well as stress relief massages.

The last day we had an all day excursion to Coba with a knowledgeable and passionate guide and had a blast riding bicycles around the Archaeological site, hiking up a large pyramid ruin and swimming in Cenotes.


We ended our FAM with a lovely, romantic dinner setting in La Punta Grill, which is the resorts Mediterranean cuisine restaurant, followed by hand rolled Cuban cigars and live music in the Havana lounge.

Thank you so much to Bennett + Mercado and NIZUC for having us for such a memorable stay!
