Throughout the course of the night the eight beauty ambassadors took to the stage and gave the audience a taste of their country. The participants got to introduce themselves as well as model in their country’s costume and several outfits courtesy of Ramon’s Village and Moondancer boutiques. During the event, entertainment was provided by Maryposa, who also invited the delegates on stage to learn a few moves.

Ramon’s Village has, for years hosted the delegates in its tropical, luxurious resort, providing the best of service and attention to the beauties as they prepare for the biggest night on stage at the Costa Maya grounds. Ramon’s went above and beyond the call of duty to host Noche Tropical, building a proper runway complete with lighting and press area for photographers to capture every stunning moment. Attentive staff tended to guests, providing nibbles and tropical cocktails to quench the thirst as each segment took place on-stage. It was a seamless affair thanks to proper planning and the foresight of organizers, and we look forward to their next event indeed!
