Our History Club Caribe Cancun

Club Caribe Vacation Club is part of the Tafer Hotels & Resorts group, which includes the Villa Group Resorts and a variety of high quality hospitality and leisure services.

As a member of Club Caribe, you can enjoy high-end, family-oriented, all-suites accommodations, facilities and services in properties located in the very best Mexican destinations in Mexico, including Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, Los Cabos, Cancun, the Islands of Loreto and the Sierra Madre, with the Riviera Maya soon to join the collection.

How it all began

The first vacation property in the collection was developed when Tafer Hotels & Resort’s president partnered with investors in 1987 to form the Villa Group, opening the first resort in Puerto Vallarta: Villa del Mar. This resort was followed shortly after by the first Villa del Palmar resort when Tafer’s president became the majority owner of the Villa Group. The success of the projects in Puerto Vallarta inspired the next venture in Cabo San Lucas where the second Villa del Palmar resort and spa was opened followed by a sister resort Villa del Arco Cabo.

The continued popularity of Puerto Vallarta as a vacation destination spurred much development in Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, which saw yet another resort added to the collection. Villa del Palmar Flamingos was named after the neighborhood that is famous for its golf courses and long stretch of sandy beach.

It was also during this time that Tafer Hotels & Resorts began developing the lakeside boutique resort of Sierra Lago in the Sierra Madre Mountains near Mascota, Jalisco. Starting out with just a few cabins at a time, Sierra Lago is now a fully functioning lakeside retreat with two restaurants, sports courts, outdoor heated pool, games room, outdoor chapel and full activities schedule.

The next properties to join the Villa del Palmar brand were Villa del Palmar Cancun—a Tafer owned resort— and Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loréto–owned by one of the Villa Group’s other partners.

Following the success of the Villa Group, Tafer Hotels & Resorts went on to develop a new brand of resorts aimed at elite world travelers: Garza Blanca. Beginning on Puerto Vallarta’s south shore, the first Garza Blanca Resort & Spa is located on an 485 acre nature preserve, while the next Garza Blanca Resorts are scheduled to open in Los Cabos and Playa Mujeres (Cancun) beginning in 2018. News about the progress of the Riviera Maya resort is soon to follow.

Hotel Mousai

The most recent addition to the Tafer Hotels & Resorts collection is Hotel Mousai. Taking the theme of exclusivity, cutting-edge design and unique experiences to another level, the Hotel Mousai brand is a groundbreaking 5 Diamond resort for adults only, dedicated to being at the leading edge of vacation experiences and chic hospitality.
