Apple Vacations Live Radio Broadcast from Sandos Caracol Eco Resort


Our Friends from WJRZ recently got back from a week-long live broadcast at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort, which is one of the Eco-Friendly Resorts we are featured in April for Earth Day.

Glenn Kalina, who has been a radio fixture in the Philadelphia and New Jersey region for many years, travelled with The Magic Morning Show & Diane De Oliviera to Riviera Maya. They broadcasted live each morning from Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. They did an amazing job while they were there, transporting their listening audience practically in to resort with them.  Here are some photos of the broadcast.

Smarter & Greener Travel II!

If you want to stay earth friendly, stay at a resort that is trying to make a difference. They are available in all price ranges. Do your research, don’t just pick a hotel because it says “Eco” but check on their website to see what they are actually doing.  I did some searching of Mexico & The Caribbean and here is the information on two resort chains that stood out to me: Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts and Sandos Caracol Eco-Resort & Spa. The info below is taken directly from their sites.

Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts offer their guests a new and unique vacation experience focused on wellness, serenity and romance, as well as social and environmental responsibility. They are also defined by their socially responsible and environmentally sensitive philosophy. They respect the beauty of their spectacular settings by recycling, carefully controlling energy usage, minimizing air pollution and protecting marine life.

At Zoëtry Casa del Mar Los Cabos , the socially responsible and environmentally-friendly practices range from an extensive paper and water recycling and reuse process to weekly beach cleaning campaigns.
