Grupo Vidanta invests millions in SPECTRE to promote Mexican tourism


Mexico-based Grupo Vidanta, one of the largest developers of luxury resorts and tourism infrastructure in Latin America, announced their contribution to the filming of SPECTRE, currently shooting in Mexico City, although no exact figure has been specified.

In conjunction with Interjet Airlines and the Mexico Tourism Board Grupo Vidanta works to attract premier tourism projects such as the Bond film to the Mexican economy and thereby create hundreds of new jobs locally.

According to Daniel Chavez Moran, founder and Vice President for the company;

“Tourism is one of the most important growing sectors for Mexico. We’re proud to be part of the team – from both the private and public sectors – leading the recruitment and development of new entertainment and tourism projects that benefit all of Mexico. The fact that such a storied international franchise as James Bond chose to film scenes of their latest blockbuster in Mexico is an honor and a testament to the growing appeal of Mexico as a destination. We’re grateful for the opportunity to help bring a new vision of Mexico to life.”

SPECTRE started shooting in Mexico this week and Grupo Vidanta’s contribution to the film’s production is the latest in a series of major tourism investments made by the privately owned luxury travel development company.
