Crystal Agent Retreat to #Unstoppable Los Cabos

Apple Vacations hosted their annual Crystal Agency Retreat in Los Cabos, Mexico from November 12th through 15th at Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Resort & Spa.

In addition to celebrating the accomplishments of the top producing agencies, the retreat encouraged agents in attendance to get out and explore Los Cabos, experience the destination and see first-hand the ongoing recovery efforts post Hurricane Odile.

As one agent was overheard saying, “Los Cabos is an ideal destination.  There’s no damage here that would prevent someone from having a great vacation”.

We couldn’t agree more. Los Cabos is #Unstoppable.
