Sandos Caracol: A Cancun vacation for $69 per night, all-inclusive


I'm not really looking for a vacation, but every so often I see a great deal and find myself contemplating a trip to someplace where the sun is brighter, the meals are included, and the pools are cool and refreshing.

If you find yourself suffering from the same syndrome and are also somewhat strapped for cash, you might want to take a peek at the Sandos Caracol Beach Resort and Spa, located in Cancun, Mexico. Throughout the fall, they are offering rooms from $69 per person, per night. These fares are based on double occupancy, so you'll probably want to take someone with you!

The resort features a wide array or restaurants, as well as a huge spa, three swimming pools, numerous fitness classes, extensive beaches, a theater, a disco, and several other things to keep you busy. Your $69 buys access to all the facilities, most equipment rentals, unlimited alcoholic beverages, and meals. The spa treatments (many of which I don't recognize) come with additional charges.

Now I can't stop thinking about Cancun. I wonder what an "Eco-massage" is...
