At Amdetur we represent tourist developers, exchange companies, specialized providers, and local associations with the primary goal of strengthening the Timeshare and Vacation Ownership industry in Mexico and globally.

What is Timeshare or Vacation Ownership?

Timeshare is the pre-purchase of vacations for a specific period of years. It allows individuals to acquire the right to use an accommodation unit while enjoying high-quality vacation services and experiences in various tourist destinations. It is also known as Interval or Vacation Ownership.
