Paradise on the Pacific Coast
It was a sunny May morning when Dream Destination Conference 2012 Elite qualifiers began arriving at the Fiesta Americana Grand Hotel in beautiful Los Cabos, Mexico. Provider Partner National Life Group hosted a private surf & turf dinner for the group in an elegantly appointed room with silver candelabras that complimented the black and silver decor.
Following a leisurely morning, the group took an afternoon tour of San Jose del Cabo and ended the day with dinner at Casiano’s restaurant. No Menu … No Rules … Spontaneous Cuisine … Delicioso!
During a breakfast business meeting the following morning, qualifiers heard from key FFS leaders before enjoying an afternoon of exploration and adventure at their leisure.
That evening, everyone met at the Co-CEOs Phil and Debbie Gerlicher’s family suite for the “Barefoot Elegance Experience.” From there, everyone was escorted to the magnificently decorated beach with couches and lounge chairs – one for each attendee – with a staff member waiting by each. First, there was a wine tasting, followed by a foot and leg massage for each individual. Next, dinner was served on the beach. The setting was beautiful; watching the sunset, then once it was dark, gathering around the fire pit for conversation and camaraderie. What an experience!
The remaining Dream Destination 2012 winners arrived on May 8, stepping off the bus at the Fiesta Americana Grand to join the elite qualifiers. FFS Home Office staff greeted them with a delicious tropical drink. After checking into their rooms and receiving instructions about FFS’ special, all-inclusive package, the associates headed off to their ocean-view rooms to begin five days in paradise.
That evening, a festive and colorful Welcome Dinner buffet was scheduled for the Fairway Terrace overlooking the Sea of Cortez to take advantage of the beautiful sunset. A mariachi band played lively traditional music. It was a great evening to celebrate the winners and to reconnect with everyone.
The next morning, a breakfast buffet was set up just outside of the meeting room. Winners heard from key FFS executives, as well as representatives from our provider partners National Life Group and ANICO.
That afternoon and the following day guests took advantage of the cabanas FFS had rented and spent most of both days enjoying the beach and pool area. When karaoke machine was rolled our after dinner, the Team of Purpose took over the stage and stole the show!
Friday was a day to spend with team members, family, or friends, and many people took advantage of that time to go off-property for various activities, including jet skiing, ATVs, horse or camel riding, or deep-sea fishing! After the Farewell Dinner that evening, everybody gathered on the beach around two fire pits dug in the sand just for FFS and enjoyed a relaxing night of laughter and good company.
Saturday morning. Phil & Debbie Gerlicher stood at the doors to the bus to send each and every person off and wish them safe travels. It was truly a Dream Destination that no one will forget.
