CAPELLA PEDREGAL’S TORTUGUITAS KIDS CLUB: CREATING VACATION LEGACIES THROUGH CUISINE, ART AND DISTINCTIVE FIRST-TIME CHILDREN’S EXPERIENCES
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – September 19, 2013 – Learning is an essential way of life. Combine that with a fun, enriching experience and you have a winning combination. Capella Pedregal’s Tortuguitas (“Little Turtles”) Kids Club aims to deliver such an experience and offers a variety of activities and experiences for children of all ages to enjoy while parents can rest easy, soaking in all that Capella has to offer – activities for tweens and teens are also available.
For families seeking to embark on a multi-generational experience, Capella Pedregal offers the Capella Family Connection Package, placing families in a comfortable luxury setting perfect for quality family time that helps families create vacation legacies worthy of being continued through the generations.
Tortuguitas encourages children to interact with the unique cultural qualities of Los Cabos through activities that are both fun and educational in nature. Whether occasionally communicating with basic key phrases in Spanish, safely playing alongside marine life or partaking in the creation of local crafts, the Kids Club offers children rare experiences and special memories. The Tortuguitas Kids Club features activities as varied as piñata making, outdoor games and story-telling; prime fodder for children to create lasting vacation memories and mementos. Tuesday night is movie night and kids can enjoy their favorite films and snacks on the beach while their parents conveniently attend the resort’s weekly guest cocktail party. Special arts and craft classes include teaching children how to construct seashell necklaces and bracelets (after exploring the beach and picking the perfect shells), origami, mask making and kite building. The Kids Club also has a puppet theater for kids to fully act out their imaginations for one another – encouraging them to form firm friendships while on vacation. When in-season, children can learn about the preservation of sea turtles and receive a tutorial on the resort’s turtle release program. This rare opportunity is not only educational, it is a life-long memory.
Capella Pedregal is also a culinary adventure for kids, immersing them in local culture by introducing them to simple yet tasty Mexican staples such as guacamole or churros – the “Mexican Donut.” Guacamole makes for a healthy snack that is fun for kids to smash and also teaches them about local cuisine. Kid’s can then finish off their meal by rolling their home-made churros in some sugar and enjoying the delicious end-product that parents can even enjoy. Other exciting activities include an interactive Scavenger Hunt where children will use a custom treasure map to gather unique souvenirs of Los Cabos and Capella. They can also master the art of sand castle building on the beach in front of Capella Pedregal and our team of judges will present all participants with awards in categories such as biggest, most creative, to “the most Capella-looking castle.” The resort’s staff can also arrange a swimming with dolphins experience should children like to interact with these gentle creatures and learn of their habits and eco-system. The Tortuguitas Kids Club provides half-day, full day, evening, and week-long programs. A half-day program is priced at USD $25 and full day programs are priced at USD $50. For children under the ages of four, Capella Pedregal offers nanny and babysitting services, which is priced at USD $25 per hour.
