Vacationers who already know Sandos Caracol Eco Resort know that we have plenty of animals! In addition to our rescue animals like the colorful guacamayas and the charming donkeys,, you’ll also see regional wildlife that lives freely in the jungles and mangroves at our property. Sometimes you’ll come across a family of coatis, or maybe even a spider monkey among the tree branches. Animals are important to Sandos, and we’re one of the only Riviera Maya resorts that doesn’t allow the buying and selling of animal photos within the property.

4. The Support for the Community

There are still many Mayan villages in our part of Mexico, and their people strive every day to honor their cultural identity. Year after year, Sandos Caracol works alongside the Mayan community to celebrate their traditions and support their towns. The people from the Mayan villages frequently come to our hotel to share their traditions and sell their artisanry to guests, so you can buy the perfect souvenir from your stay in the Riviera Maya. We also invite you to participate in the Pack for a Purpose program to contribute to the Mayan community during your next vacation. All you have to do is pack school supplies or items for the home on your next visit, and we’ll donate them directly to the villages with the most need.
