    Can I pack something extra to help local comunities?

    Yes! Thanks to the Pack for a purpose program together with the Sandos Foundation, our guests are able to bring with them some needed items which will be donated to local kids and their families to help them improve their life conditions.

    What should I expect on my visit to Sandos Playacar

    It is really important to mention that Sandos Playacar is a large property with guestrooms, restaurants and activity areas distributed throughout the hotel. Golf carts are available for transportation around the resort, and you will find stop rides in different spots of the hotel to pick you up and take you to common areas. In spite of this, we recommend you to be ready for long walks if you do not want to wait for the golf carts.

    How is the weather at Sandos Playacar?

    We remind you that we are located in the Caribbean, so we have a tropical climate; that is, we typically have sun almost all day and if it rains, the rainfall is usually short and light. Due to this, the area humidity level is high.
