Sandos resorts fight sniffles and sneezes in Mexico

See also

Got the sniffles? Could you be coming down with a cold? Not to worry. Mexico's Sandos Hotels and Resorts has got just the remedy. They call it their “Sandos Seizes Sniffles” promotion – offering everything you'll need to fight off the blahs, from traditional Mayan steam baths to special tequila cocktails to chicken soup.

Among headliners on Sandos' anti-cold menu are “temazcal” baths in sweat huts, said to remove “impurities from the body and soul.” You'll find the huts at the two Sandos properties on eastern Mexico's Riviera Maya, the Sandos Caracol Eco-Resort & Spa and the Sandos Playacar Beach Resort & Spa.

Special spa treatments aimed at pepping you up with Vitamin C along with an anti-oxidant are available to guests at the chain's two other properties, the Sandos Luxury Experience Resort in Cancun and the Sandos Finisterra on the other side of the country on the powdery beaches of Los Cabos.

Included on a long list of cold-fighters at all four of the hotels are menu specialties such as chicken soup and known sniffle-killers ginger tea and elderberry tea. And there's nothing like Mexican spices to open stuffed-up nasal canals. Ditto for all kinds of chili-infused dishes on the menu.

Still feeling lousy? Try belting down a couple of Sandos' famous germ-killing tequila cocktails.

You'll find these remedies and many more at the four hotels. The “Sandos Seizes Sniffles” promotion is good through March 1, 2014.

Getting there: Nonstop flights to the Cancun/Riviera Maya and Los Cabos resort areas are operated from major U.S. gateways such as Atlanta, Chicago-O'Hare, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Phoenix and San Francisco, among others.
