In the spring semester of 2012, a Fletcher consulting team advised OHL Desarollos, a leading Spanish sustainable development company, on how to position and market Mayakoba, its luxury resort development in the Yucatan, to the US travel trade. The project was so intriguing that one of the student consultants, Jane Phelan, delved even deeper into the Mayakoba story through her Fletcher capstone project.
