Family: Second child 12 years and under Stays, Plays, and Eats Free (valid 1/03/16-12/23/16). Set along a beautiful white sand beach in Playa del Carmen on Riviera Maya, this eco-friendly resort lies in the luxurious residential complex of Grand Coral, with an amazing 18-hole golf course designed by the famous Nick Price next door. Escape to an array of beautifully appointed rooms stretching from the magnificent Mexican Caribbean to the lush green jungle. Upgrade to the Select Club section for a luxurious adult-only experience. Rooms are decorated in superlative fashion, complementing the soothing ambience of the Mexican Caribbean. Greening Your Life: Part of the Apple Vacations Greening Your Life initiative, this property avoids the use of plastic water bottles and uses recycled paper for all printed material. The ultra-efficient air conditioning systems utilize low energy consumption, and a guided eco tour allows guests to explore the Mayan jungle, including 16 natural cenotes, indigenous animals, and exotic plants. Repopulation programs are also available for local wildlife and native plants. Biodegradable mosquito repellant is available for free throughout the resort. The Sandos Caracol Eco Resort lies in the exotic Mayan jungle and is surrounded by natural sinkholes (cenotes), mangroves and lagoons where you can admire the typical fauna and flora of the region. Enjoy a romantic and relaxing canoe ride through the natural waterways of the mangroves. In the biggest cenote of the resort - right behind the lobby - guests discover the crystal clear, refreshing waters that are so typical for this region. Learn all about the ancient Mayan culture. Get to know the lifestyle of the Mayan people, enjoy the Temazcal (additional fee), admire the Attic of the Orchid, explore the bicycle track and the trails. This is truly the perfect destination for the nature-lover in all of us. The main pool offers a little something for everyone. Dive in or pull up a seat at the swim-up bar that spans nearly the entire length of the Royal Elite section, only a few steps away from the beach. Kids can cool off at the resort's fun-filled water park with 17 water slides, multiple play areas and lifeguard supervision. Daytime activities include beach volleyball, sandcastle building, swimming and snorkeling, tennis courts (2) with lights for night play, supervised Baby club and Kids' club with playground, crafts, TV, movies, sports, and over 80 different ecological activities included in the Xacalacoco Experience. The teen activity program features music, pool tables, beach soccer, and more. Indulge at the wide range of buffet, à la carte, and snack bar dining options. There are three abundant buffet restaurants, featuring international fare, delicious Italian specialties, and authentic Mexican cuisine. For à la carte dining, enjoy Teppanyaki, Brazilian, Mediterranean, Italian, Vegetarian, and steak/seafood. After dinner, head to the theater featuring live nightly entertainment. There's something for everyone at Sandos Caracol, whether you prefer naps on the beach, treks through the jungle, or drinks by the pool.
