NIZUC Resort Weekend Retreat in Cancun

 

Flight Arrangements

Flight arrangements to Cancun are complete for most of the 2022 state titleholders who have been crowned this year. Itineraries were emailed to the titleholders and state directors for the flights that have been booked. Over the next couple of weeks, we will continue booking the additional flights.

If your titleholder misses her flight to Cancun, she is responsible for notifying Michael Hannah at 713-249-1952. If there is a fee difference because she missed the flight, she is responsible for paying for any fare difference. The exception to this rule is if there was a delay in her flight departure that caused her to miss your connection. In that case, the airline would not charge her a fee.

 

Tipping at NIZUC

Tipping is not required, but just to let you know…they will happily accept tips (Feel free to tip the cart drivers, wait staff, special deliveries to your room, daily housekeeping, etc.)

The current US$ to Mexican Pesos (MXN) exchange rate is approximately 1:20.

 

Tipping Suggestions:

  • Breakfast: $3 USD or 60 MXN pesos
  • Housekeeping: $3 USD or 60 MXN pesos
  • Cart Driver (Just one of the titleholders per ride): $3 USD or 60 MXN pesos
  • Special Deliveries (extra towels, toiletries, or other items): $3 USD or 60 MXN pesos
  • Daily Housekeeping (if used): $3 USD or 60 MXN pesos
  • Porter carrying your bags: $3 USD or 60 MXN pesos

Additional Wardrobe Items Needed for Cancun

We ask each titleholder to bring one additional item to Cancun for the photoshoot. It should be a solid black bandeau top, or black tube top, a solid black strapless swimsuit, a black strapless top with no straps and no sleeves. All tops should be free of rhinestones or other embellishments. Titleholders will be in the water with this top. Please see the following sample images:

JOVANI Logos on State Websites

JOVANI Logo on websites. The agreement was to have the JOVANI logo as a national sponsor on all the Miss USA state websites by May 15, 2022. JOVANI has conducted a review of all websites and has found that quite a few states still have not placed the logo on their websites. Per JOVANI, the lack of their logo on some of the state’s websites has prevented them from responding to some of the requests for JOVANI promotional items for state pageant contestants. Please place JOVANI’s logo on your website no later than June 5, 2022.

 

To access the JOVANI logo:

  1. Go to missusa.com
