Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Earns a Distintivo “H”!

Executive Chef Daniel Pech and staff at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa

Sunscape Dorado Pacifico was recently awarded with Distintivo “H” Award. The Distintivo “H” program, an initiative of Mexico’s Health Department, is based on requirements established by the World Health Organization and aimed at food and beverage service providers looking to improve the quality of their offerings through better hygiene practices in the process of handling, storing, and preparing food and beverages. Establishments looking to receive the distinction must voluntarily request an inspection of their operations. Obtaining a Distintivo “H” award is recognizing the effort made by hotels and restaurants that are committed to raising their standards of hygiene and quality.

Congratulations to Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa, and especially to Executive Chef Daniel Pech and staff in your unrelenting work towards maintaining the highest standards in health and hygiene!

An Excursion to Potosi’s Lagoon

For guests visiting us at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa, an excursion to Potosi’s Lagoon could make their vacation even more complete! Potosi’s Lagoon, located south of Zihuatanejo and the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo airport, is a beautiful area that provides a down-to-earth, authentic Mexican beach experience. The lagoon itself is located at the southern end of the long white stretch of beach known as Playa Larga and Playa Blanca.

When visiting the lagoon, guests can not only enjoy the plentiful sunshine, but they can also tour the mangroves and watch the amazing birdlife in small boats. This area truly is a bird lover’s paradise and birdwatching in this area is an absolutely amazing experience. Kayaks can also be rented to take in the views and birds from a different angle.

If you’re interested in visiting Potosi’s Lagoon during your stay at Sunscape Resorts, simply stop by the activities desk upon arrival and someone will be happy to help you arrange a trip!

10 Destination Wedding Tips

Our wedding coordinators at Sunscape Resorts & Spas always aim to please and ensure that our brides and grooms have an extra special big day! For anyone currently planning a wedding, here our 10 tips to help you through the process.

  • Save yourself some money. Few people realize that destination weddings are less expensive than traditional weddings. You’ll be able to combine the wedding and honeymoon for a much more affordable option.
  • Relax before, during and after the wedding. Choosing a destination wedding means you’ll also have time for a mini-vacation. Most countries require couples to arrive a few days prior to the wedding day to finalize details and paperwork. After all this, you’ll have a few days to enjoy quality time with their friends, family and each other.
  • Pick the perfect location.  It is best to decide on a location after you estimate the number of guests who will attend the wedding. This will help narrow your property search.
  • Reserve early. Reserve rooms for the wedding party and guests as early as possible. The sooner the better.
  • Make a budget and stick to it. Once you decide on a budget, it is important to keep track of all of your spending. Go over the budget with the wedding coordinator to ensure all your wedding needs are met while staying within your budget.
  • Get help. An on-site wedding coordinator will ensure your wedding day is simply perfect. They’ll help organize, prepare and coordinate every detail leading up to your special day.
  • Take some time for yourself. As newlyweds, you’ll be exhausted from the wedding. Take a few days to sleep in, slow down and rest.
  • Keep everyone informed. Wedding websites are the perfect way to keep all of your guests informed about your big day. Include photos, addresses, directions, accommodations, travel information and other important information that will help your guests.
  • Enjoy the great outdoors. Consider a wedding location with outdoor options. Having an outdoor wedding gives you flexibility in the number of people you can invite and also offers spectacular views.
  • Find the right package for you. Resorts often offer a variety of wedding and honeymoon packages. Each package usually provides an array of services and amenities tailored specifically for the bride, groom and newlyweds. You can find out more about the wedding packages atSunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa here.

Earth Hour at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico

At Sunscape Resorts & Spas, we believe in working toward a sustainable future. For that reason, Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Cancun participated in Earth Hour, an international declaration against the dangers of climate change. Earth Hour’s website defines the worldwide movement:

Hundreds of millions of people, businesses and governments around the world unite each year to support the largest environmental event in history – Earth Hour.

More than 6,950 cities and towns in 152 countries and territories switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2012, sending a powerful message for action to save the planet. This year marked the continuation of the movement going Beyond the Hour, with more than 200,000 individuals accepting I Will If You Will challenges on YouTube to turn their symbolic action for the planet into an ongoing commitment to a sustainable future.”

Before they turned off the lights, the Entertainment Staff gave a presentation to resort guests about the importance of conservation, including what children learned that day while at the Explorer’s Club.
