For a branded pool reception, the Nobu Los Cabos resort will

stay that can't be replicated, says Kevin Edmunds, VP of group sales.
"We try to create a meeting experience where all participants live the
lifestyle, the place where your attendees want to reside, and beg to
repeat. With penthouse meeting space and group menus straight
from Nobu restaurant-you really can't get that anywhere else."

Attendees might know Cancun, but it's unlikely they have experienced
what many refer to as "the privileged spot of the Mexican Caribbean,"
Costa Mujeres. About 30 minutes from the Cancun strip, what was
once a sleepy fishing village is experiencing a number of new resorts
and tourist attractions. A big draw is its tranquil undeveloped beach,
surrounded by mangroves and indigenous plants.
The 592-room Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres, opening
in November, will sit 10 ft above sea level, providing panoramic
views, and include a system of canals that attendees can use to get
around the sprawling property.
Groups visiting the resort area of Punta Cana experience the
Dominican Republic's beautiful beaches, but why not immerse them
in the local culture and history with a day trip to the capital city of
Santo Domingo? Organize a walking tour of the Colonial District
and Historical District, or sample traditional Dominican cuisine at
one of the many colorful local restaurants. The "KaKow Experience"
at the Chocolate Museum teaches attendees to make chocolate
and allows them to experiment with flavors. There's also a makeyour-own chocolate bar where they can customize their own candy.
A must-see are the daily folkloric and cultural shows in the Plaza
Espana, hosted by the Ministry of Tourism.
