AILA Conference: November 18-21, 2021

Let's get started!

I aim to answer as many of your questions in advance as possible and this group page will be a useful tool you can refer to again and again as needed.  That being said, I am here to help you with any questions or concerns you may have, so please feel free to reach out to me via email, or feel free to schedule a call with me via phone by clicking HERE.

Please note that although the official conference dates are November 18th-21st , these rates are available from November 15th - 24th, subject to availability**PLEASE NOTE, as of 8/31/21, the hotel is completely sold out for the night of November 18th.  You must select one of the remaining room types for the conference, unless you are ok with switching rooms mid stay.  Resort is also completely sold out of Ocean View rooms for November 16th and 17th.  Options are to switch rooms mid stay, or select another room type.  Please note -Feel free to come early or stay later- you deserve a vacation after 2020!  Should you wish to stay additional nights outside of the official conference dates of November 18-21, please allow a few extra days for confirmation from the hotel. 

***As you may or may not be aware, securing 50 rooms for a conference in a post-covid world has been challenging.  The Mexican government has mandated that resorts can only have a maximum occupancy of 50% of hotel capacity.  As such, we may not be able to get additional rooms once this room block is sold out.  So, please make sure to book early to ensure you get a room.  Our last three conferences have sold out, and demand to travel is high!

Rates below indicate the total cost per room.  Single rate means one person in the room, double rate is for two people in the room, Triple rate is for three people in the room.

And now, let's move on to where the conference is being held...

Ready to book?

Ready to book? Click here to submit your reservation request or select Book Now at the bottom of this page.

Paymnet is due IN FULL at the time of your reservation.  There is no deposit only option.

Deadline for booking rooms is September 10, 2021.  On September 11, 2021 we will return all remaining rooms to the resort and will not be able to get these discounted rates back.

**PLEASE NOTE** - We are strongly advising everyone to book their rooms ASAP for this conference as the Mexican government has currently mandated that resorts can only have 50% maximum occupancy at all times.  As such, once these rooms are gone, it is unlikely we will be able to get additional rooms.  The last three previous conferences in Playa del Carmen, Costa Rica, and Jamaica have all sold out, so get your rooms now so you don't miss out!


PRO TIP:  PLEASE check the expiration date on your passports now.  Your passport MUST be valid for 6 months after the date you return to the US to be considered valid, so verify your passport is good through May 2022.  Wait times for new passports and renewals of your passports are long right now due to government employees working from home, so please do yourself a favor and take a look now.  If you need to renew or apply for a passport, doing so now will avoid stress later.
