Apple Leisure Group (ALG) said subsidiary AMResorts will end the year with a pipeline of nearly 20 all-inclusive resorts and some 6,000 rooms planned in the region.

The resorts are in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central and South America. New destinations include St. Lucia and Puerto Rico.

New projects span AMResorts' six brands: Zoetry, Secrets, Breathless, Dreams, Now and Sunscape.

"The Caribbean and Mexico are the cornerstone of our growth strategy, and with STR reporting nearly a 27% year-over-year increase in the number of hotels under construction in the region, there is unprecedented opportunity," said Javier Coll, ALG's executive vice president and chief strategy officer.
