Ons avontuur

Laat ik beginnen te zeggen dat we een super leuke laatste dag in Nederland hebben gehad. Met heerlijke vrienden en speciale mensen. Niet geslapen de nacht van vertrek (07.45u) wat goed heeft geholpen, want die 10 uur vliegen vlogen voorbij. Eventjes wachten bij de douane, maar direct begeleid naar de Arke Bus waar ik toch nét even teveel fooi …

The adventures of getting to Mexico

A travel blog entry by charlotterowley

... to-work time. Today, just a different journey. The train took an hour to gatwick, a short hop on the shuttle to reach the North terminal and no queue at all to drop my bag! We ended up departing an hour late. Sat on the plane loading cargo after cargo. A tad annoying. It's been a while since I've flown a long haul flight during the day time. And it's boring. I managed to watch 3 films, 3 tv programmes and still not fill all the time. So of course we landed nearly ...

Spa, beach and thunderstorms

A travel blog entry by jmoon


... to run to the room the rain trying to get me. After lunch the rain stopped and even though I had a good few hours at the beach another storm threatened but passed further south of us. Dinner was excellent. We ate at El Sol. It was lovely. I had the lobster fettuccine with a cheese fritter starter. Dessert was a yummy rice pudding base, pineapple roasted and coconut sorbet. Too full to get back to the ...

Christmas at Sea

A travel blog entry by snowietx


... and at one point they played Wishing You a Merry Christmas and everyone joined in with the singing. Our dessert was some sort of rich chocolate item that was very good and a shot of a coffee liquor.

By now we were quite full and ready to get out of the formal clothes don the bathing suits and plant our rears in one of the hot tubs. This turned out to be a great idea because the hot tub wasn't crowded at all and a wonderful way to end a great Christmas day! ...

    The hotel overall was very accommodating. We were offered complimentary champagne while checking in and a golf cart ride to our room because it was pouring down rain. The rain didn't stop for three days so the hotel staff actually built bridges so that guests wouldn't have to walk through the water.
    There are seven restaurants on the resort grounds and all have pretty decent food, except the late night buffet (but what do you expect?). The staff is responsible for different activities throughout the day (zumba, beach volleyball, game room, etc.) and the resort holds nightly shows at their theater so there is always plenty to do. We saw the Michael Jackson concert and were pleasantly surprised.
    The hotel also allows multiple companies to work out of their activity area in order to assist you in booking excursions. We used the company Best Day and were very impressed with the professionalism the representative showed. She was amazing!
    I loved that the Resort was Eco friendly and that there were wild animals walking around us at all times and that they placed recycling bins near the walkways for you to place your reusable cups in. All of our drinks were given to us in either glass or plastic recyclable cups.
    We read other reviews before our trip that mentioned an overwhelming amount of mosquitos or that the beach shouldn't be walked on barefoot. We, however, didn't encounter any of these issues. Overall, I was very happy staying at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa.

    It was a great vacation. The grounds and buildings are beautiful Mexican style decor. The service was good and the food at the buffet was outstanding. There are several restaurants at the resort that served good food. It's an all inclusive resort, so there was plenty to eat and drink. Water sports and para-sailing makes for fun adventures.
