Los Cabos Captivates KHM Travel Agents on Apple Vacations FAM
Written by: Amanda Bailey on July 25, 2016
July 11th-14th, a group of 20 KHM Travel Agents and our West Coast Support Specialist, Ilma Abelyan, traveled to Los Cabos for our Apple Vacations FAM!
The area of Los Cabos, or “the tips,” is named for its location at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. While it is in Mexico, it’s a world apart from the country’s other hot spots like Cancun and Puerto Vallarta.
Tina Tiano, our Apple Vacations BDM, and a coordinator from Amstar Destination Management Company, led the group through site inspections at nine resorts around Los Cabos, including their beautiful host hotel, Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas.
The other resorts they toured included:
- Breathless Los Cabos
- Secrets Puerto Los Cabos
- Dreams Los Cabos
- Me Cabo
- JW Marriott Los Cabos
- Barceló Grand Faro Los Cabos
- Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar
- Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos
- Riu Santa Fe
The agents enjoyed each resort they visited, and were able to learn what makes each one unique for their clients, says Ilma.
“One resort that really did surprise me was the Sandos Finisterra. When you first walk into this resort you only see couple of pools and restaurants,” she adds. “But once you start touring the resort, you keep going up on a cliff with breathtaking views of the beach and marina from restaurants.”
Each of the guestrooms also feature stunning views of the Pacific Ocean or the Marina on San Lucas Bay.
In addition to site inspections, the agents also mingled and enjoyed delicious meals at Breathless Los Cabos and Dreams Los Cabos, along with the farewell dinner at Riu Santa Fe.
One of the most important takeaways from this trip was experiencing the difference between Los Cabos’ two popular tourist towns, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.
“San Jose del Cabo has the more established ambience, with sophisticated shopping and art galleries,” Ilma says. “While Cabo San Lucas has the fun-loving beach scene and nightlife.”
Ilma recommends that clients visiting Los Cabos should check what both areas have to offer.
KHM Travel Agent Karen B. and her husband also found this trip to be a valuable learning experience for their agency.
“What an awesome Cabo San Lucas FAM! Thank you to those at KHM for making this one possible for us,” says Karen. “Very thankful we made the investment. Having the opportunity to see the region, and discern between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo is huge for me.”
We would like to thank Apple Vacations and Amstar DMC for guiding our agents through this FAM, and providing them with information and experiences they can share to better serve their clients.
