  • Overview

    Apple Leisure Group (ALG), owned by private equity portfolio companies KKR and KSL, is the industry leader in Mexico and the Caribbean travel. CheapCaribbean, ALG’s leading online brand, is based in Addison, TX and has a fun, entrepreneurial, non-hierarchical culture, led by former senior executives from the world’s largest online travel agencies.  BeachBound, ALG’s newest brand, is akin to an internal startup and has the potential to be ALG’s largest brand
