Groupon has a "Gourmet-Inclusive" vacation package to the AAA El Dorado Royale in Cancun, Mexico - sounds interesting. Instead of regular meals, the all-inclusive option includes gourmet meals at one of their 11 on-site restaurants. But what's really interesting is that it also includes tickets to the hotel's "Culinary theater" where you can watch the executive chef prepare a five-course meal on large screens surrounding the restaurant. Sounds tantalising!
