Our last day at the Ritz-Carlton started with a peaceful, guided eco-tour via kayak down Shingle Creek, which is the headwaters to the Florida Everglades. For Grande Lakes guests who want to explore the resort’s natural surroundings, they can take advantage of morning rows and private guided eco-tours of Shingle Creek either by kayak or canoe. During our tour, Carlos pointed out the different flora and fauna and how Grande Lakes is working with nature conservation efforts to properly restore the ecosystem.
It was the perfect ending to a perfect trip. Grande Lakes is proof that you can still enjoy the natural wonder Central Florida has to offer. Thank you to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes staff and Laura Davidson Public Relations for coordinating such a wonderful and insightful trip in my home state of Florida!
