Fall in love with nature at Sandos Caracol Eco Experience Resort
As you walk through our resort, you’ll come across dense jungle and mangrove forests, a key part of the local environment. You might even see wild animals, macaws, peacocks or spider monkeys. Each of our cenotes is beautifully preserved and cared for, just like the rest of our property. Here at Sandos Caracol Eco Experience Resort, we’re all about highlighting our natural surroundings! We’re constantly finding new and innovative ways to preserve our local resources, whether it’s nature, the environment or the local community.
