Earlier this year, Wyndham signed a franchise agreement with what used to be known as the Cozumel Reef Club.

Larger than the Aura with 402 rooms, it has now been renamed the Wyndham Cozumel Resort and Spa. The new Aura is being built next door on the same part of Cozumel's south west coast

The Aura will be the group's 14th property in Mexico, they also have hotels and resorts in: Acapulco, Mexico City, Manzanillo, Puerto Penasco, Puerto Vallarta, the Riviera Maya and San Jose del Cabo.
