Marival Group® was founded in 1984 by Canadian Senator Pietro Rizzuto, and started operations as a Condo-Hotel concept. With 354 beach front rooms, this construction became one of the driving forces behind the development in Nuevo Vallarta by introducing the All Inclusive concept in the tourist market in 1987.
 
Currently chaired by Alfonso Rizzuto, Marival Group® is integrated by an extraordinary and professional work team that has successfully faced the challenges of growth and development of tourist services through the different companies within the group. Its dynamic participation in business and social organizations have earned the group the opportunity to create strategic alliances with other important groups from Canada, United States and Mexico. Marival Group’s talented professionals have participated in the Hotel and Motel Association, the Visitors and Convention Bureau, the Nuevo Vallarta Residents Association, amongst others. These liaisons have position Marival Group as a leading corporation decisively supporting municipal and state administrations in the state of Nayarit.
 
Marival Group’s portfolio now includes, Marival Resort and Suites®, Marival Residences Luxury Resort®, Rancho Banderas®, Marina Riviera Nayarit at La Cruz, Trafic Tours®, which is one of the biggest DMC’s and Marival Vacation Club®.
