Why Sandos Caracol is the Best Choice for Families

Posted on 4 m read

What makes Sandos Caracol Eco Resort so popular is the a la carte restaurants, nightly entertainment, friendly staff, buffet restaurants, superior customer service, water park, select rooms, water sports, passionate animation team, spa, and the beach. When it comes to beaches the closest rival to Playa del Carmen is Punta Cana, but the Riviera Maya has the best stretch of white sand beach in the world.

As soon as you arrive from the airport you’ll be checked-in within 15 minutes and ready to start having a great time.

Traveling as a family brings many benefits, from tightening the bond between the “tribe” members to improving communication (remember that time you had to return to the room because you forgot something?), not to mention the unique memories that will last for a long time, like the time you walked to the restaurant and a monkey stole Dad’s cap!


Supporting Culture and Sustainability

The best thing about traveling to Sandos is that the experience starts even before arriving to the hotel. Did you know that you can use any extra space in your suitcases to bring donations to local communities in need? What better way to promote values and awareness in children than by showing solidarity with those who need it? If you want to know more about Pack for a Purpose, click here.


Pack for a Purpose is a program to generate, little by little, a positive change in the local communities near the hotel's locations.

Values can be encouraged throughout your family vacation in the Riviera Maya, where children can feed the Mini Farm animals that were rescued from unfavorable conditions and today are living a full life inside of the resort; plant a tree and leave its positive mark on the hotel; or become a lifesaver with Animal Heroes, a non-profit association with which we collaborate to train heroes to save animals.

White Sand Beach

When visiting the Caribbean, there’s one natural wonder that every family member has to see, and that is the beach! Because the best all inclusive family resort cannot be complete without a day of sand, sea and sun.

The turquoise color of the Caribbean Sea is due to its cleanliness and depth.

That’s why we recommend you bring your goggles! Children love discovering their surroundings, so this experience is especially interesting for the little ones.

Our guests can enjoy comfortable lounge chairs, waiter service, and a lot of activities and beach games organized by our Entertainment Team, whowill make your stay at the beach an unforgettable one.
