The Benefits of Celebrating Christmas on the Beach

If you believe everything the movies tell you, you’re probably looking for a Christmas of snow and shopping… but we just might have a better idea. How about a Christmas vacation under the sun? At Sandos Mexico resorts, we’re always celebrating this time of the year right here on the beach. Imagine fiestas on the sand, impeccable Christmas dinners prepared by professional chefs, and spending December 25th in the shade of a palm tree… that’s how we enjoy Christmas at Sandos. There are so many benefits of celebrating Christmas on the beach, and here at Sandos, we’re the experts! 

1. Fewer clothes to pack

You won’t have to bear the weight of your coat, scarf, gloves, sweater, and worst of all… boots. Free your feet and walk barefoot along the sandy beaches of Mexico to feel the sand between your toes. Here on the shores of Mexico, you don’t need much more than your swimsuit, a t-shirt, shorts, and your flip-flops. Leave your heavy winter clothes at home and bring the essentials for a sunshine-filled getaway. Some sunglasses and sunblock are also a must.

2. You don’t have to cook

When you spend the Christmas season at one of our all-inclusive resorts, we take care of all the breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners for you. This year, the chefs at each Sandos resort will be preparing beautiful Christmas dinners for our guests, so the holidays don’t pass you by without trying traditional Christmas dishes from Mexico and around the world. 

3. Ocean views are the best gift

A tropical beach vacation means gorgeous surroundings, something you can find at every Sandos resort in Mexico this Christmas. Sandos Cancun has some of the most stunning Caribbean Sea views from its incredible location in the Cancun Hotel Zone, the best way to wake up on December 25th. Sandos Caracol Eco Resort offers topical Christmas by the ocean in the heart of the Riviera Maya jungle. Sandos Playacar sits on one of the largest and most beautiful white sand beaches in the Riviera Maya, and you’ll want to spend Christmas Eve lying on it gazing at the impressive Caribbean Sea. Sandos Finisterra is an all-inclusive resort known for its unbeatable views of Cabo San Lucas; this property offers panoramas of the ocean or the bay from every room, as well as premium amenities and services around every corner. This Christmas, give yourself the gift of ocean views.

4. We Have Everything that Makes Christmas Special 

Christmas is a wonderful time for everyone in the family, and you wouldn’t want to take away all that makes it one of the best days of the year! Spending these winter holidays in Mexico doesn’t mean giving up the things you and your traveling companions love about Christmas. Each Sandos resort in Mexico goes above and beyond to ensure that all guests’ tropical Christmas has everything they admire and more. 

That means Christmas decor, Christmas lights, Christmas Carols, and the most crucial detail of the holiday, a Christmas Tree! The only difference between spending this year’s celebrations in Mexico is the warm weather, sandy beaches, pools, special performances, and unbeatable amenities. Not to mention if there is anything that the staff at Sandos can do to make you and your family’s Christmas even more unique, make sure to talk to someone at our reception upon check-in! 

5. New Traditions and Memories

If you’re thinking about spending your Christmas holiday away from home for the first time, you better get ready to make this an annual tradition! We guarantee you are going to fall in love with not only the hotel but the destination as well! Each Sandos is located in a unique place with different cultures, activities, experiences, gastronomy, and people. You will have an endless amount of opportunities to explore the area, take part in new adventures, meet amazing people, taste different foods, and so much more. 

Imagine ziplining through the jungle or ATVing on a mountain! Discovering the unique Mayan Culture or exploring downtown Los Cabos. Instead of being closed in because of the cold during this year’s holidays, try something new, encounter different experiences, make unforgettable memories with family and friends, and make traveling to Mexico for Christmas one of your new yearly traditions! 

6. Meet New People 

A getaway to your favorite beach destination is always a great way to meet new people, and it’s even more true during a coastal Christmas! With joy in the air, it’s the perfect moment to make new friends, both for adults and children. During all of the exciting Christmas activities that are planned for guests, take the opportunity to walk around and meet someone new. Who knows, maybe you’ll find yourself another family to go on vacations with in the future. Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. 

7. The Best Christmas Card in The World

Each Sandos is situated in a unique destination, and with them are the best spots to take amazing photos. Instead of a Christmas Card where the entire family is gathered around the fireplace, how about one on the mountainside of Cabo San Lucas, in front of a cenote, or on a white-sand beach? We promise this year’s Christmas card will blow your family and friends out of the water. 

8. Getting Pampered at an All-Inclusive Resort

Our final reason for celebrating Christmas on the beach is probably our most important one: You get to be pampered at an all-inclusive resort. Special cocktails brought to you by the pool, international cuisine, exciting activities with our entertainment team, daily massages, nightly performances, and live bands; what could be better? All you have to do is choose your favorite Sandos: 

Sandos Finisterra 

Travel to the mountainside of Los Cabos and add breathtaking views to your Christmas bucket list. With an unbeatable situation between the Sea of Cortez and Marina, guests are within walking distance to downtown Cabo San Lucas. An incredible spa, beachside pools, and delicious restaurants are just a few things guests can indulge in at Sandos Finisterra. 

Sandos Cancun 

The vibrant city of Cancun awaits travelers with an exciting and adventurous Christmas Getaway. With nightclubs, bars, restaurants, shopping centers, excursions, and so much more close by, guests will experience a one-of-a-kind getaway on and off the resort.

Those in search of an eco-getaway this Christmas are in for a treat at Sandos Caracol.

Some of them consist of swimming in the on-site cenote, visiting the animals in the pet farm, and exploring the jungle on bikes. 

Are You Ready to Spend Xmas in Paradise? 

To add to the fun for all of our guests, Santa Claus comes to the beaches of Mexico every year! For Christmas 2021, he will be visiting each Sandos resort to celebrate the holiday season with guests. If you want to indulge in sun, joy, and sand on Mexico’s beaches this Christmas or next, come to see us at Sandos Hotels & Resorts. We await with joyful wishes for a happy holiday!
