The CME Retreats are specially designed anesthesia conferences that provide the best-in-class educational experience in some of the most inspiring locations around the world.
Surrounded by the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, soft coral sands and the striking shade of blue ocean it is very easy to see why Cancun was voted the second most attractive destination for vacations, and as such, is one of the inspiring locations chosen for NYSORA’s CME Retreat Anesthesia Conferences.
The Yucatán Peninsula was the center of Mayan civilization and you will find many Maya archaeological sites throughout the peninsula. Chichen Itzá, one of the most notable landmarks of the area, takes you on an incredible journey back to the Maya civilization and a visit here will make you feel that you have stepped back in time.
In addition to its incredible history, Cancun’s breathtaking blue waters are full of colorful underwater sea life making it an excellent destination for snorkeling and scuba diving. The third largest coral reef system in the world continues through Cancún and the Riviera Maya, where it is home to more than 65 species of coral and 500 species of fish.
Perfectly situated on the soft white sand beaches of Cancun, this exclusive beach resort provides the perfect accommodations. Paradisus Cancun is a chance to experience the stunning beauty that has made Cancun an international destination in the comfort of a luxury resort on par with the highest standards of excellence. This commitment to quality is why Paradisus Cancun has been awarded Four Diamond honors since 2006 by AAA.
Luxurious, spacious and elegantly decorated rooms on a pristine beach that is short 15 minutes from the airport. Whether you are on the beach, at one of the four lagoon-inspired pools, or dining in any of our nine on-site restaurants, our goal is your total satisfaction.
Tennis, a nine-hole par 3 golf course, Kids Club, YHI Spa, and a Family Concierge option give you plenty to do and ways to explore during your visit.
