Why Go To: Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun

While many people (especially Jimmy Buffett fans!) know and love the “Margaritaville” brand, only luxury-travel insiders instantly recognize the name “Karisma” and will immediately understand what this partnership means….. a vacation experience like no other.

Opening in mid-March 2020, the brand-new Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun promises the perfect combination of barefoot-casual attitude that Buffett fans demand and the 5-star elegance, superior service, and gourmet dining that Karisma clients have come to expect.

While we know that all (new) resorts suffer from ‘soft opening’ issues, we have high hopes and plan to be amongst the brave souls willing to risk those potential problems to enjoy a “5-o’clock somewhere” day full of margaritas and tacos…..Join us if you dare!
