Mexico Travel

Mexico is a land of mystery, wonder, amazing gastronomy and culture. Once you have truly experienced Mexico, it becomes a life-long love affair! There are so many reasons to experience Mexico, here are just a few!

Did you know that Mexico has over 6,000 miles of pristine coastline and there are 450 sandy stretches of paradise to experience?!

The ancient Mayan ruin Chichén Itzá has actually been declared one of the Wonders of the World! There are remarkable remains of the once-great Mayan civilization everywhere!

Nobody can argue that Mexican food is amazing! Recently the nation’s cuisine attained status by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Mexico is one of the worlds’ top snorkeling spots! There is even an underwater museum of art (MUSA) that features dozens of original sculptures on the sea bed amongst the reefs!

Let’s talk resorts! Mexico has resorts for everyone! Whether your clients are looking for a gorgeous boutique resort off the beaten path or a large resort with activities to keep you busy all day long, Mexico has it and we want you to join us at Mexico FamTrips to learn more about all of them.

All of these are great reasons to experience Mexico, but the #1 reason is the people! You will fall in love with the hard-working, proud people of Mexico!  They are the spirit of Mexico and what makes it so special!

Reviews from Past Trips

“From start to finish, everything about my first Mexico Famtrips experience was top notch. From my prompt and luxurious airport transfers, to my stay at the fabulous Fives Beach Hotel & Residences, nothing was overlooked. Lori is gracious and knowledgeable and has fantastic relationships with people you need and want to know at all the resorts. I can’t say enough about how well done my trip was. I absolutely hope to be invited back again and look forward to learning more and more. FAMS are absolutely necessary to keep up in this industry. Why not learn with the best!? Thank you, Lori and the Mexico Famtrip team!!”

Carita Coughlin

“I had a wonderful time with Mexico Famtrips! They not only but together a great itinerary with some amazing properties, but Lori was also a pleasure to meet and get to know. She’s very passionate about the country and the industry – and it shows! I learned so much and am now more excited to get people to Mexico!”
 
Demetria Walter
“Mexico Famtrips are amazing! If you haven’t been on one, you were missing out. Thank Lori, for being such a great host to all of us.”
 

Sarah Fox

“I had a great time with Mexico Fam Trips and learn so much. Lori is a great host. I will definitely be going on another trip in the near future 😊!”
 
Elaine Malone
“Very informative, Enjoyed meeting up with great group of like minded people. I will definitely do it again!”
 
Diane Holmes
“What a great experience! I will say that my agency primarily sold cruises until Covid. About 7 months ago I decided to take that leap into the world of All-Inclusive Resorts. Since this is all new territory for me, I decided to join one of the Mexico Fam trips. This was a great decision. Not only was it a fabulous value, but we were able to experience 3 nights at a gorgeous resort PLUS we spent one full day visiting various resorts in the area. I made lots of new friends and Lori does a wonderful job of giving everyone the perfect amount of time to enjoy the resort.
 
Anyone “on the fence” about attending a Mexico Fam Trip….don’t think twice. These fill up quick so if you see one you want to attend, you better sign up. I am so glad I did!”
 
Kimberly Mossner
“I haven’t even been home 24 hours, and I am honestly counting down time until I can go back to Mexico. Lori Swinderman is a fantastic business woman and has such an amazing passion for travel, travel advisors and Mexico. Lori has the most amazing energy and presence. She has lined up the most fantastic business partners out there. I learned so much. Honestly, the only bad thing – it ended. I will have to force myself to NOT register for EVERY.SINGLE.TRIP. If you are debating it, just go! I can’t wait to see how my business grows as a direct result of THIS trip. I am already booked to go on another FAM with Mexico Famtrips and can’t wait!”
 
Kerry Ghastley
“My wife and I have now been on two Famtrips with Lori, she is an incredible woman and organizer. She creates a friendly and fun experience and understands we all want to see more than just bedrooms and restaurants.

This last trip to The Fives Beach and Residents we enjoyed a Mexican cooking class on site and also visited a market with a Glass Blowing and Chocolate making area on site.
Of course on top of this she is extremely knowledgeable about Mexico and it’s needs.
I would recommend everyone to go on her trips, and please help by taking old or new clothes for her to distribute to those in need.”
 
Robert McClaren
“My Mexico Famtrips experience was very thoughtfully put together by Lori to ensure that all the agents were getting a well-rounded education. We got to tour and stay at multiple properties and also receive additional education about Mexico and all the amazing things we can offer our clients. Not only did we have a group of passionate and diverse agents, but Lori herself is so knowledgeable and passionate about both Mexico and the travel industry. Her connections within the industry are valued and she is always willing to share what and who she knows. She is an asset to us all and I personally appreciate how helpful she has been.”
 
Erica Caplan
“Mexico Famtrips was honestly one of the best fams I have ever done! Lori has such a passion for what she does and is very clear about her vision. The fam was very well organized, and had a perfect mix of education, experiencing the properties firsthand, meeting and getting to know the sales staff at the resorts and learning about the people and culture of Mexico.”
 
Dana Schweiters
“THIS is the way to learn about and see the best of Mexico! I did so many things that I could not have done without MexicoFamtrips and I met the most experienced, dedicated and professional agents who were right there learning with me. Lori is amazing and the suppliers that she is able to connect us with change the future of my business. I hope to be working with them many times over the years to come!”
 
Jennifer Lennox
“Mexico FAMtrips is exactly what every travel agent needs! Lori has created an opportunity to “get your feet wet in Mexico,” an opportunity unlike any other! My clients loved seeing where I was and following me on my FAM to the Valentin. When clients see us traveling, they become ready to go themselves!
I love the community of agents that Lori is creating and the sense of purpose her FAM trips build. I am excited to go on even more of these trips, so that I can learn as much about properties in Mexico as possible!
Thank you Lori for the opportunity and everything you continue to do for our agent community!”
