Isla de Corales could probably be located somewhere in Mexico or the Canary Islands where Spanish is spoken, but English is often used too. This is likely because items in the resort's shop are mainly in Spanish, as well as signs on the mild/wild sidewall, the resort website's text is in Spanish, while all other text within the resort is written in English.
The resort is split into 2 sides: the Wild Side, and the Mild Side. The Wild Side is for adults only, while the Mild Side is for families. It is likely that adults with no children can stay on either side. Each side has a golf club, and a free-form pool. The Mild Side features a toddler cabana, a kid play zone, a Teen Zone, Tween Zone, while the Wild Side features a private beach where adults can sunbathe naked. The side division is relatively newer as it was not like that at the time Susan and Frank honeymooned.
Events in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway
The resort is the primary setting for the book. Susan and Frank Heffley went to this resort on their last honeymoon. The Heffley Family went to this resort after Susan and Frank saw an ad for the place on TV and wanted to take their kids to the place of their last honeymoon for Christmas, following problems at home. However, their vacation practically snowballed with the calamity ensuing because of some of their actions. An image of the Heffley family is posted on the homepage of Isla de Corales' website after all of the trouble they caused while they were there, and they are banned from the resort.
