    Here at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort, we’re all very excited about the recent opening of the new extension to our Aqua Park. Those of us who have already visited us will remember that before we had a water park exclusively for little kids, with colorful water slides and large splash areas. However, we came to the conclusion that we needed to offer the same fun to the “big kids” staying at our resort.

    On Feb. 7, 2016, we opened a new area to the Aqua Park with a total of 12 new water slides designed for adults, teens and kids. Ever since opening day, the Aqua Park has become one of the most popular attractions for the people staying at Sandos Caracol! Of course, a Playa del Carmen vacation wouldn’t be complete without some fun in the water, and now our guests can enjoy all kinds of water slides (including classics like the Kamikaze) in addition to our beautiful pools and water sports on the Caribbean Sea.

    Now the Aqua Park has three areas: the Aqua Park for little kids with lots of mini slides, a kids’ area with 5 water slides, and an area for adults and teens with 7 water slides.

    If you’re thinking of visiting us this year, we’re sure you have some questions about the new and improved Aqua Park at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. Below you’ll find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions:

    What are the height requirements for the new water slides?

    For your safety, use of the water slides is based on height, no matter what your age. The new water slides for kids require a minimum height of 1.10 meters (3 feet 7 inches), and the new water slides for teens and adults require a minimum height of 1.40 meters (4 feet 7 inches). The littlest guests will find a world of fun in the kids’ Aqua Park with mini slides and so much more, always bringing an adult to supervise.

    Is the Aqua Park part of the all inclusive plan?

    Yes! All guests staying at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort have access to the Aqua Park at no extra cost.

    When is the Aqua Park open?

    The kids’ Aqua Park area is open daily from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. The water slide area is open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

    Did you cut down any jungle or mangrove to build the new Aqua Park area?

    The construction of the new Aqua Park didn’t affect any of the jungle or mangrove areas of the resort. The new water slide area was built was a completely clean area, and the few palm trees that originally stood there were moved to other parts of the property. Sandos Caracol Eco Resort is committed to environmental preservation and minimizing our carbon footprint. We always strive to offer sustainable vacations to our guests!
