This Is How We’re Celebrating Christmas 2016 at Sandos

Beach, Lights and Fiesta

Believe it or not, there are still many people out there who believe it’s better to celebrate Christmas at home, but luckily at Sandos we don’t agree. On the contrary, we think that an end-of-the-year getaway with sand and sunshine might be just what you need to get into the Christmas spirit… and of course here we offer you all those must-have traditions.

For us, Christmas and New Year’s represent a season for celebrating with family and with friends, which is why every year we put together an extensive program of parties, dinners, shows and surprises so you can experience happy holidays at Sandos Hotels & Resorts. The most important thing to know is that this is a very, very special season at all of our resorts throughout Spain and Mexico, but if you’d like to see a more detailed itinerary for this year, please keep reading…

Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos

As always, Christmas celebrations at Sandos Finisterra are centered around the gorgeous Plaza Finisterra and Don Diego restaurant, both offering clifftop views of Cabo San Lucas and the bay, as well as a few events in our pool and beach area. We’ll celebrate Christmas Eve with a beautiful buffet dinner followed by a Christmas show, and the party continues on Christmas Day at the pool party with music and contests, then our Christmas Dinner at Don Diego. On New Year’s Eve, we’ll get ready for 2017 with another daytime pool party, and by night we’ll have the end-of-the-year dinner and a live show. Sandos Finisterra will kick off the new year with brunch on New Year’s Day at Don Diego, and a classic college football tailgate party. And of course, on January 6 we will celebrate Three Kings’ Day (a Spanish and Latin American tradition) by cutting the Rosca de Reyes cake! Throughout the holiday season, Finisterra will have many other surprises like activities for kids and adults, plus our famous White Parties on Wednesdays.

The new Gran Plaza area, with its huge stage and lovely outdoor atmosphere, will be the main location for our celebrations at Sandos Playacar Beach Resort, along with some events in the main pool and beach areas. On Christmas Eve, the whole family can celebrate with a Christmas show and our White Party, and on December 25 we’ll have the arrival of Santa and our famous Candy Village for the kids. On New Year’s Eve, everyone can enjoy a night of partying with live bands and shows, and we’ll keep the party going until 3:00 in the morning. Of course you’ll want to revive your spirits after the previous night’s party, so on January 1 we’ll have a “First Aid Station” along with a seafood cookout in the pool area. To honor Three Kings’ day, on January 6 we will be cutting the rosca.
