Now, let’s look at the most popular destinations for religious trips in the North America and Mexico.
Orlando, FL, for Your Church Group
Orlando is a favorite among convention and conference-bound church groups. The city offers wholesome entertainment and access to affordable hotels that cater to church groups by providing a safe and friendly environment with amenities and services galore. Family and marriage retreats will be able to find repose and refreshment by spending time together and having fun. If your church is looking for an educational experience that gives your church members a close-up look at the ways of life in the biblical narrative, then you will not want to miss the Holy Land Experience.
Atlanta, GA, for Urban Missions
Churches from across the country often head to Atlanta to have the opportunity to serve in urban missions. The city offers a variety of outreach opportunities through homeless shelters and organizations serving the poor in underprivileged neighborhoods. Atlanta is also home to many mega churches that host important events.
Toronto, Canada, Home of Missions Fest 2016
Toronto is the fourth largest city in North America, and it is known for having significant cultural and ethnic diversity. Churches from across the United States and Canada often head to Toronto to seek out opportunities for service and fellowship. Toronto is also home to Missions Fest, one of the largest and most relevant global-missions conferences in the world. If your church group has Toronto on the radar, then Groople has a number of selected hotels offering superior value and comfort, as well as coveted amenities like parking for buses and free Internet access.
Mexico, Going South to Serve Your Neighbors

Whether your church is just heading to Tijuana or Eagle Pass, or you have plans to partner with churches in Chiapas to serve indigenous communities, Groople will help you book hotels both enroute if you are traveling by bus and at your final destination. We are careful to select hotel partners that have excellent prices for church groups, without neglecting comfort, safety, and quick access to partner churches or outreach centers.
