Auckland, New Zeland

Whether you prefer city or nature, Auckland has the adventure for you



Auckland is located on the North Island of New Zealand and is one of the largest cities in the country. Located on the Waitemata Harbor, the city has views of the Auckland Harbor Bridge and Rangitoto Island.


If your group is adventurous, plan an unforgettable team-building experience and bungee jump from the Auckland Harbor Bridge. AJ Hackett Bungy New Zealand offers the perfect venue to host an exciting employee party or other innovative corporate events. The waterfront deck is perfect for hosting a cocktail party or a large gala. Your guests can relax with awesome views of the harbor and the bravest can climb the bridge to make the 131-foot bungee jump over the water.


Another great way to see the city is by taking a kayak trip to a nearby Rangitoto Island. This dormant volcano is a just a 75-minute kayak ride from Auckland. Ferg’s Kayaks offers a guided private group tour beginning in the late afternoon. You will paddle to the island and then you will be guided up the volcano to the summit to relax and take in the stunning views of Auckland as the sun sets. After venturing down the mountain, you will kayak back to Auckland under the sparkling night sky.


Enjoy dining in Mexico City’s coolest neighborhoods




Mexico City is a vibrant, buzzing city known for its gorgeous architecture, beautiful city parks, and delicious food and drinks.

The Roma and Condesa neighborhoods are perfect for spending the day wandering along tree-lined avenues. Even better, there are plenty of great options for food.


Contramar is situated in the stylish Condesa neighborhood and is known for its fresh, delicious seafood. The restaurant is bright and casual, but don’t be surprised if you see large groups of friends dressed up and out for a night on the town.


They’re known for their famous grilled snapper, which is butterflied and brushed with red and green sauce and their tuna tostada dressed with chipotle mayo and crispy leeks.

This is a wonderful choice if you’re traveling with colleagues and need a table for a large group.


Another great option for a large group is La Docena Oyster Bar, located in the nearby Roma neighborhood. They offer grilled oysters and oyster shots, as well as a raw bar with a wonderful selection of fresh oysters just waiting to be shucked. They also have seafood platters, sashimi, grilled fish and a selection of cured meats. Their interesting wine list features bottles from Mexico’s up-and-coming wine region, Valle De Guadalupe.
