Mayan Wisdom for a Modern Age

Tools for living, communicating, and creating success.

Our conference theme of Mayan Wisdom for a Modern Age will marry the Mayan culture with our present-day world in relatable, practical ways. All of our events and activities will be weaving this theme in and out, in creative and colorful ways!

The Maya people were and continue to be experts at self-reflection and their wisdom lays the groundwork for the path to living a good and righteous life. Our speakers and leaders will show us how!

Connoisseurs Connections Conference - Nizuc Resort & Spa, October 11-14, 2021.

Nizuc Resort & Spa

Paradise is personal.

Our 2021 conference host is the gorgeous NIZUC Resort & Spa, situated in Punta Nizuc, Cancun, Mexico. Rooted in Mayan traditions and steeped in quiet beauty, we couldn’t find a resort better suited to be home to our conference theme of “Mayan Wisdom for a Modern Age.”

Located in the secluded enclave of Punta Nizuc, less than a 15-minute drive away from Cancun International Airport, NIZUC Resort & Spa redefines the standard for luxury in Mexico and around the world. With 274 luxurious suites and private villas dispersed through the 29-acre property, NIZUC feels like a private oasis. Everywhere you go, water embraces the property and ties the structures together in what feels like a modern-day tropical treehouse fantasy, inviting you to wander and explore what's around every corner. Apply now to see it in person.
