It is believed there will also be significant discounts and giveaways on golf and spa services, when the details are revealed next Monday.

There are also competitions to enter, with prizes including holidays for the next 20 years. 20 years!! To be in with a chance to win, search the #Come2MexicanCaribbean hashtag.
