A Supplement to
Grupo Mexicana Updates
Corporate Image to Consolidate
Grupo Mexicana has unveiled a new corporate
image that will make the brand more
competitive in terms of service, innovation,
dynamism and fl exibility.
The new corporate image was launched at
the airline’s maintenance base in Mexico City,
unveiling the new logo and colors in an A320
and an F100.
Reliability has always been a hallmark of the
brand, which now incorporates accessibility
and innovation, based on in-depth research in
various market segments.
The new logo transmits hospitality and
flexibility of an airline dedicated to customer
service. The eagle has been preserved as
the brand’s essence, reflecting the stability,
consistency and solidity of Mexicana. The
graphics and fonts have been designed based
on Mexicana’s roots, projecting a proud representative
of Mexico worldwide.
Aircraft, airport counters and all communications
will feature the new logo and
“Grupo Mexicana felt the need to create
a new image that establishes an innovative
airline with sights firmly set on the future
and offers its passengers a memorable travel
experience,” said Mexicana CS and CC Senior
vice president, Adolfo Crespo.
To consolidate its leading market position,
Grupo Mexicana has been upgrading its
products and services. One example is Mexi-
canaGo, a new loyalty program with fl exible
rewards and improved benefi ts for members.
MexicanaGo members will manage their
own accounts online and have a call center
at their disposal, giving them access to exclusive
promotions and unrivaled benefits.
“To meet the needs and preferences of
members, we have entered into strategic
alliances with prestigious hotels, car rental
agencies, banks (shared-brand credit cards),
airlines (oneworld), telephone companies,
department stores and points.com, among
others,” said Crespo.
Depending on their status, MexicanaGo
members can redeem points via programs
like Welcome, Explore, Discover, Conquer
and Award Calendar.
They can acquire products like
all-inclusive VTP packages and
participate in auctions. Pre-
ferred members will have exclusive Gold or
Platinum Elite cards.
The program will be launched in March
and applications can be made online at mexicanago.com,
where new members will receive
a bonus of 1,000 points.
• The new corporate image is part of a comprehensive strategy to
consolidate the airline’s leading position in the domestic market.
• The new image will differentiate the brand visually and build on
the group’s new corporate philosophy, geared toward service and
• As part of this strategy, Grupo Mexicana has developed a new
loyalty program, MexicanaGo and has upgraded the online services
The Web site mexicana.com has become
more user-friendly and interactive, as well.
The site now offers a “multisegment” option
allowing users to tailor their travel itineraries
and search for fl ights by price and schedule.
The launch of its new corporate image and
loyalty program are just two of the initiatives
Mexicana has undertaken to consolidate its
position as Mexico’s leading airline.
Mexicana’s introduction of new long-haul
routes to destinations like London, Sao
Paulo and Madrid will establish it as an international
carrier offering world-class passenger

California Agents Get
‘Taste of Tijuana’
BY DICK SLAKER
(Dick Slaker is a travel agent with Adventures in
Travel, San Diego.)
Tijuana opened up its heart, soul and hospitality
to more than 30 travel agents and tour
operators from San Diego and Orange County,
CA to better acquaint their neighbors north
of the border with their city.
Tijuana Mayor Jorge Ramos invited the Californians
to see what this bubbling city has to offer
in the ways of tourism by inviting us for a
“Taste of Tijuana.”
Hosted by the Tijuana Convention & Visitors
Bureau, our group fi rst visited the Tijuana
Cultural Center (CECUT), which punctuates
the local skyline with its spherical IMAX
Theatre, known locally as “La Bola” (The Ball)
that can be seen for miles.
Exhibits at CECUT promote artists in Baja California
and Tijuana in a space called El Cubo (The
Cube), the architectural counterpoint to La Bola.
The cultural center is well worth a visit.
We then boarded the Tijuana Open Air Tour
Bus, operated by Mexicoach, and our guide,
Valentine Sanchez, told us about the history
and places of interest at the 13 sites along the
tour bus route through downtown Tijuana.
The “hop-on, hop-off” tour bus route takes
about two hours and costs $10 per person, on a
route that begins at the Tijuana Cultural Center.
The route includes stops at Revolution Avenue
(3rd Street), L.A. Cetto Wine Tasting Room, Tijuana
Beer Company & Micro Brewery, the Grand
Hotel, Caliente Casino & Stadium, Restaurant
Row, Lt. Guerrero Par, Revolution Avenue (Mexicoach
Terminal), the River Zone, Plaza Rio Shopping
Mall, Pueblo Amigo Plaza & Hotel and Viva
Tijuana Plaza (near the US border).
Along the route, we visited L.A. Cetto Winery
to sample the vintages from the Guadalupe
Valley in Baja. After sampling some of the excellent
wines, we all loaded up with purchases
of wine, olive oil and, yes, bottles of Pina Co-
lada for $2 each. Almost everyone’s arms were
fi lled as we boarded our open air tour bus.
Quite a treat.
During the stop at the Third Street and Revolution
Avenue, we learned that Caesar Salad
was introduced at the nearby Caesar’s Hotel by
San Diego chef Caesar Cardini.
We were then hosted at the Grand Hotel, another
stop on the tour bus route, by the Tijuana
Convention & Visitors Bureau for our “Taste of
Tijuana” — a special menu presentation from
eateries along Tijuana’s Restaurant Row.
After a luncheon presentation by the folks from
the Tijuana Convention & Visitors Bureau and
the Baja Secretaria de Turismo, we hopped back
on our open air bus for the short ride to the
renovated Hipodromo Agua Caliente to observe
dog races and the 1,333 gaming machines at the
famous track. We were pleased to fi nd out that
Caliente is now offering traditional bingo games
and sports betting. Naturally, snacks were served
with margaritas to end the day in total bliss.

Known for its abundance of hotels, fun restaurants
and glitzy night clubs, Cancun nevertheless
also offers travelers the opportunity to
visit archeological sites dating back more than
2,000 years, without actually leaving the city.
For instance, the El Rey Ruins are only about
six miles away from the center of Cancun on
Bulevar Kukulcan. The ruins are named after the
discovery of an ornamental head-shaped sculpture,
which can be found today at the Chetumal
Archeological Museum. The structures on the
site date back to the year 1300 and have a complex
style resembling Tulum. The site’s façade still
shows the remains of mural paintings.
North of the city, on the way to Punta Sam, lies
another archeological site called El Meco. The site
has the tallest and most important structure in the
urban area of Cancun, and also the largest number
of buildings devoted to civil and religious affairs.
According to research, the site was inhabited and
deserted on several occasions but in the year 1200,
El Meco took on an important role in the political
and economic arena of the peninsula, thanks to its
extensive maritime activity.
Several other ancient relics can be found in Cancun,
such as Yamil Luum at the center of the Wetin
Lagunamar Hotel, and an isolated temple can be
seen at the Pok ta Pok Cancun Golf Club.
JUST A DRIVE AWAY
Another highly unknown archeological jewel
near Cancun is Ek Balam, about 90 miles
away. The site’s buildings, temples and palaces
are inside a walled area indicating that it was a
sacred center and political headquarters, home
to governors and priests. It requires at least an
hour to tour the main structures.
An extensive remnant of the Mayan world,
Coba, is about an hour and a half away from
Cancun. Several communities of more than
50,000 inhabitants built Coba over a region of
roughly 43 miles. Coba exerted economic control
of the region through a complex network
of roads, and is home to the tallest pyramid in
the north of the peninsula.
Also, not too far from Cancun is Tulum, the
walled city sitting on the edge of a cliff, facing the
sea. The vestiges of the city’s castle and temple are
decorated with symbols of the god of bees and
Venus, guardian of the coast and commerce. This
is one of the most visited ruins in Mexico.
Only two hours away from Cancun is one
of the Seven Wonders of the World, Chichen
Agents Can Become Cancun Experts
The Cancun Tourism Institute (CTI), is a
travel agent educational program established
by the Cancun Visitors and Convention
The 2009 Cancun Tourism Institute is a
multifaceted, three-part educational program
— Study Course, Field Trip and Loyalty Program.
Using the CTI’s interactive e-Learning
Center, travel agents will acquire the knowledge
and resources to convert consumer interest
into real profi ts.
Both the Guide and the online course are
full of details on selling a new, better Cancun.
There are numerous quizzes to review what
you’re learning. There are maps and lists of
hotels, tour operators and all the sights of the
area — everything it takes to become today’s
The CTI program demonstrates how Cancun
is much more than a “beach vacation” but
rather a complete vacation experience. The
program provides everything agents need to
know to create a complete, well-planned trip
for clients, whatever their needs or interests.
And agents can boost agency revenue through
selling more Cancun inclusions to more clients,
according to the Cancun CVB.
CTI BENEFITS INCLUDE:
Certifi cation: Graduates will secure “continuing
education credits” from The Travel
Institute and CITC (Canada).
Course Materials: Whether you study online
or via our Study Guide, you’ll have access
to electronic (PDF) versions of key sales
materials, available on demand.
Itza, home to the impressive Kukulcan pyramid,
a large calendar made of stone that is adjacent
to the largest Mesoamerican ball game
fi eld. In addition, there is a Mayan astronomic
observatory and The Temple of Nuns.
Twice a year, on the spring equinox and fall
equinox, an amazing astronomic phenomenon
takes place at Chichen Itza. At a specifi c point
in time, a sunlight effect creates the illusion of
the Kukulcan serpent descending from the top
of the pyramid to fertilize the earth. This event
attracts tourists from all over the world.
