Research the local scene for a corporate party in RIviera Maya
There are a lot of different options for businesses looking to host their corporate party in the Riviera Maya. Before you know what kind of party you want to throw or which hotel would be best suited for your guests. It’s important to conduct research. In order to make well-informed decisions, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the local scene. For example, if you wanted to find out about the best local restaurants that serve seafood. Start by doing some quick searches on Google. Afterward, ask around among friends and colleagues who have been there before so they can give you some insight into which places are worth visiting. From there, set up meetings with those restaurants and see if they can accommodate your group’s needs.
Book hotel rooms a week before your corporate party in Riviera Maya
Planning for an event requires plenty of work, and you can’t do it all at once. In fact, planning for a company party should really start at least a week in advance. This gives companies time to research restaurants and activities that will be suitable for their guests. While they still have the ability to book hotel rooms with availability. So where do you start? If your event is going to take place in the Riviera Maya. We recommend exploring and booking hotels on the beach or by the water or pool.
The Riviera Maya has many beachfront resorts, including some of our favorite hotels like Dreams Playa del Carmen Resort & Spa and Condesa Maroma Beach Resort & Spa. For any gathering that takes place on a specific day, try looking up when the sun will rise and set during your event so you know what time it will be most appropriate for when guests arrive and leave.
Know your audience’s interests and host an activity-based event
Before you book your hotel, it’s important to know the interests of the people attending your event. Whether they enjoy a day at a nature reserve or prefer playing sports on the beach, knowing what activities these people want to participate in will provide you with valuable insight into what type of itinerary you should plan. For example, if one of your employees loves golfing, then hosting a golf-themed corporate party is perfect for them. To make sure that your guests are having as much fun as possible at your event, start by planning activities that range from relaxing to exciting. Try hosting an activity-based party such as a day of surfing or kayaking and have fun food and drinks during downtime between events.
Don’t forget about food, drink, and entertainment options in Playa del Carmen
The accommodations, activities, and restaurants in Playa del Carmen are literally endless. You can find anything you could possibly want there. Before you start making plans with your company, take a moment to survey the options on offer in the area. Research which restaurants have been recommended by locals and which ones are the most-visited tourist destinations. You might also want to conduct some research on the local nightlife; this would give you an idea of which bars and clubs are popular to frequent when people come down for vacation or for business.
Whatever activities you choose for your event or excursion, make sure that you plan accordingly for food and drink options as well. In a city like Playa del Carmen, where dining is considered an art form, it’s important that your guests will be satisfied. There are so many delicious and inventive things to eat in this region that your guests won’t even know they’re missing out if they don’t happen to try some of these dishes while they’re here.

The Playa del Carmen beach is perfect for daytime activities and sunset gatherings
The Riviera Maya is a vacation destination that offers plenty of opportunities for fun and relaxation. From water sports to golf to shopping. There are many activities that you can enjoy during the day or at night in the Playa del Carmen beach. Additionally, the beautiful sunset views make it easy to plan a get-together on the beach. When it’s time to eat dinner and enjoy the views. If you decide on having your event in the night hours, consider booking a cruise next door on a small riverboat. For your guests to take an evening dip. Some companies also choose not to have their party in the day and instead host one in the evening after work is done. In this case, consider reserving tables or pagodas with lighting that will attract attention from people strolling by on the beach.
For after-dark functions, opt for night-time activities like rooftop barbecues and parties

The good thing about these events is that they’re less pricey than other activities. But still provide an exclusive experience for guests in attendance.
