Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Ichabods dine on the beach in Mexico


Information and registration form

Get away this winter, head someplace warm, and enjoy a fun time with fellow Ichabods at the Sandos Playacar Beach Resort, 45 minutes south of the Cancun Airport. Located right on the beach amidst the sugary-white sands and crystal-clear waters of the Mexican Caribbean, this all-inclusive resort is walking distance to downtown Playa del Carmen and the pier with ferry service to Cozumel. Plus, there are two nearby golf courses. It's only a three hour flight from Kansas City to Cancun. You'll have a suntan before sundown!

Sign up for one of our two departures:

  • Sunday, Jan, 22-29, 2023
  • Tuesday, Jan. 24-31, 2023

Both departures will overlap five of the eight days.


*Cost begins at $2,199 per person for two people sharing one room. There is an additional fee if you plan on traveling by yourself. Price includes among other things:

  • Roundtrip airfare from Kansas City (other departure cities available, but pricing may vary)
  • Seven (7) nights stay at the all–inclusive resort hotel
  • All meals and beverages

Trip will likely sell out. Don't delay, sign up today by by phoning our travel agent, Dave Bonnel, at 1-800-444-4248.
