The leaders of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) arrived on Sunday at the International Airport in Cancun, a resort city on Mexico's Caribbean coast, for the two summits to be held in nearby Playa del Carmen.

The leaders arrived aboard a Mexican Air Force plane, with registration number TP-03, at about 1:06 p.m. local time. A Mexican Foreign Ministry official identified them as Patrick Manning, the prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Denzil Douglas, the prime minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Winston Baldwin, the prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Tillman Thomas, the prime minister of Grenada, David Thomson, the prime minister of Barbados, and Colin Granderson, the Caricom's assistant secretary-general.

The leaders arrived just minutes after Haitian President Rene Preval and Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding. Haiti and Jamaica are members of both the Group of Rio and the Caricom.

Mexico is hosting the first Mexico-Caricom Summit on Sunday and the Group of Rio Summit on Monday and Tuesday.
