Sandos Playacar is known for the seemingly never-ending beach we're located on, which presents a great responsibility and commitment for our hotel.

In order to preserve our environment and reduce any negative impacts the hotel's operations may have, the use of plastic water bottles, straws, and other plastic products has been completely eliminated. We also promotes the health and growth of sea turtles during the hatching season by offering security and safe releases for hatchlings.

Actions speak louder than words, but sometimes words are beneficial. That is why Sandos Playacar has information placed throughout the resort in strategic points like rooms, restaurants, and during our nightly performances. This information highlights the importance of the local plants and wildlife, and easy decisions that guests and staff can make every day to promote a healthy environment. We also offer activities such as "plant a tree", where guests can help create a healthy environment with their own hands.

Initiatives that make a difference are not only presented to guests, but to the hotels' collaborators as well. They take part in initiatives such as beach cleanups, both in Sandos Playacar and on the beaches of the Sian'Kaán Biosphere. We also collect and properly dispose of plastic bottle caps, resulting in 17 children with cancer being supported.
