Marriott Vacation Club Expands to Mexico, Central America, & South America

Marriott Vacation Club, the premier timeshare brand of Marriott International, announced today the introduction of the points-based Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program to its Owners and customers in Mexico, Central America, and South America.

"Building on over 25 years of innovation, evolution and industry leadership, the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program offers greater flexibility, further personalization and more experience opportunities for Owners," stated Amy Immerfall, Marriott Vacation Club public relations.

“We’re excited to expand this offering to our current and future Owners in Mexico, Central and South America. We’ve already seen an exceptional response over the past six months with our North American launch,” said Lee Cunningham, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Marriott Vacation Club, North America and the Caribbean.

Participating countries include Argentina, Barbados, Bermuda, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Trinidad/Tobago and Venezuela.

Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Owners will receive an annual allocation of Vacation Club Points to redeem for customized getaway experiences. They will also have the ability to bank, borrow, transfer and purchase additional Vacation Club Points each year.

In addition, the new program provides Owners the services of a personal Vacation Ownership Advisor to assist in travel arrangements within any one of the four Vacation Collections:
  1. Marriott Vacation Club Collection: Enjoy reservation access among more than 50 luxurious Marriott Vacation Club resorts, including ease of any day check-in, varied lengths of stay, wide array of accommodation sizes, and more choice of travel season at resorts in North America and the Caribbean.

  2. Marriott Collection: Choose from over 3,200 hotels and experience new destinations through trade for Marriott Rewards points.

  3. Explorer Collection: Journey to new lands or cruise the seas in luxury with exchange for memorable and exceptional travel packages.

  4. World Traveler Collection: Access a global system of over 2,500 resorts in more than 75 countries through Interval International.
While the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program offers this enhanced opportunity to new customers in North America, the Caribbean, and now Mexico, Central and South America, current Owners will maintain the full rights and privileges of their ownership. At the same time, existing Owners will have the choice to enroll in this new program to further enhance their vacation experience.

    Being a Marriott timeshare owner, I think Mexico and Venezuela are bad investments based on current political climate. I also think Marriott Vacation Club would have been better served to locate in Belize and/or Calgary, Canada. I do appreciate MVC expanding the possibilities for it's owners.

    Being a former salesperson for Marriott Vacation Club for 7 yrs I decided to leave after the new point system was introduced since it is now nothing more than a travel club with no real estate deed at any one property. A real scam! Good luck using those new points at any high demmand location at peak times ahead of the owners of deeds at those locations.
    J.W. Marriott would be ashamed of what they have done...
