In a single day, you can experience authentic Mexican food, fresh raw macrobiotic cuisine, and one-of-a-kind five-star dining experiences. Oh, and did we mention the jaw-dropping coastal views?

Located at the official APTA CSM conference hotel, Odysea, is known as “A Liquid Adventure.” This waterfront lounge features one-of-a-kind drinks and refreshing bites. Odysea’s perch beside the water – including outdoor terraces – is a coveted gathering place for CSM attendees. Stunning views of the sparkling blue ocean waters will take your breath away and the fresh seafood picks will have you wishing you had brought different pants. But our favorite part about Odysea is that it’s an Ocean Friendly restaurant. Doing as much as they can to reduce plastic and other ocean waste by eliminating the use of Styrofoam or plastic take-out bags, and implementing recycling practices and reusable tableware. Straws are available on request.
