Playa del Carmen, Mexico

I planned a year ago to visit Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The purpose of my visit was to check out some resorts and a casino that I had not seen before. Having returned two days ago, and while travel has changed under the new requirements, it was a wonderful visit. I was able to tour some great resorts that each offer something different.

The first night I stayed at one of my favorite resorts a little further south along the Riviera Maya. The next day I headed to Playa del Carmen for a three night stay at Sandos Caracol. Joining me on this site inspection trip was Shannon, from Riviera Reflections Weddings & Events, based in the Riviera Maya.The purpose of this trip was to scout out some new locations for honeymoons and destination weddings.

Sandos Caracol is a family friendly, all inclusive resort set along a beautiful beach. There is also an adults only section, with its own beach club area. The staff is wonderful, and the food was good. This resort offers something for everyone, and the natural setting is amazing. Jungle, cenotes, monkeys, waterfalls, and a suspension bridge are just a few of the things waiting for you. The rooms are  comfortable, and a good size for 2 adults or 2 adults and 2 kids. If you are traveling as a family, I recommend the Eco Family Suite which gives you more room, a separate bedroom for the kids, a larger bathroom with 2 showers, and a plunge pool on your balcony.

Celebrating my birthday during my visit was extra special; the resort went out of their way to show me some ‘birthday love.’ It is special touches like this that will make a special occasion, honeymoon or destination wedding that much more memorable. The cake was delicious by the way!

The room category we stayed in was a deluxe ocean which was extremely comfortable and the decor a throwback to the 1950’s island vibe. This room category does not have a bathtub, just a shower but you won’t care because of the amazing ocean views. We took a tour of the resort and the junior suite ocean view is very island chic. This suite category has a bathroom with a shower, tub & double vanity. There are a total of 10 room categories to choose from, we will help you choose the one that is right for you.
