scheduled for a fall debut on Isla Mujeres.

In addition, a large volume and variety
of flights from key source markets makes
Cancun a “convenient and desirable vacation destination,” Mendoza added.
Nevertheless, the company intends to
expand to other destinations. “Original Resorts’ goals are to expand within Quintana
Roo [state] and throughout Mexico” over
the next 10 to 15 years, she said.
