A few years ago I did my girls trip to Playa del Carmen and I can still remember what a relaxing and great time I had. Now, I’m ready for another beach getaway to relax and renew. Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa in Riviera Maya has recently made over 100 ocean view rooms eco-luxe. The updated rooms signal what is happening in many hotels around the world in regards to having eco-friendly accomodations. The Sandos has a spa which is my favorite part of any travel experience.
“In terms of sustainability, each room has an air conditioning system with low power consumption, a solar system to heat the water to eliminate using gas, an Internal lighting system based on energy-efficient LED and in-room water coolers to reduce the use of plastic water bottles. Additionally, there is a new recycling system in place for waste water.”
The resort has a new club bar featuring live evening in music. I find myself usually exhausted in the evenings from cavorting on the beach and relaxing reading a good book by the water. The resort has as part of its all-inclusive package tours of the ecological surroundings and snorkel tours. There is also a romantic canoe ride for couples.
I’m putting Sandos Caracol on my radar for 2012.
