A few ways to say "where would you like to meet?"

"Donde quieres que nos encontremos?"

What are some other typical, every-day usage ways of saying this?

That sounds most natural, but can you say: ¿adónde vamos a encontrarnos?--
or does this mean where will we find ourselves?

In Spain the most common way would be " Cómo/dónde/cuando quedamos??

Mexicans practically never use "encontrarse" like this and the question may have this double meaning, but the context will make it clear and it will be understood anyway.



By the way, now that Robin pointed out "quedar", Mexicans also use "quedar de verse con alguien":

- ¿Qué te parece si quedamos de vernos en el parque?
- ¿Dónde quedaste de ver a Juan?
- Quedamos de vernos en la cafetería.
