Perched at the southern tip of Mexico’s 1,000-mile-long Baja Peninsula, Hard Rock celebrated the opening of the brand’s fifth all-inclusive resort in the idyllic destination with a VIP-studded grand opening celebration – featuring a celebrity guitar smash, press conference and an exclusive concert from Enrique Iglesias, in addition to multiple live artist performances and celebrity appearances.
