Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa
Clients traveling with kids to the Rivera Maya can’t go wrong at a place that has its own aquatic area with no less than 17 water slides, “raining” palm trees and water spouts throughout. Little ones who are enrolled in the resort’s kids club get daily visits to the Aqua Park under the supervision of the Sandos Animation staff as part of the all-inclusive resort’s offerings. Sandos also has a baby club for 2 to 3-year-olds.
The all-inclusive resort is packed with activities for guests of all ages, including a complimentary snorkeling tour of underwater caves and an eco-excursion that uncovers the diverse plant and animal life around the property, including curative trees, cormorants, donkeys and peacocks. Sandos has an onsite veterinarian that cares for the critters. These offerings are part of Sandos Caracol’s commitment to the life surrounding it. As a result, the resort is well on its way to becoming one of Mexico's most environmentally conscious properties through various preservation and conservation initiatives, appointing themselves—according to director of sales and marketing Jacques de Paep—“full-fledged allies of the environment.” As such, Sandos involves guests in its efforts through eco-workshops for children, designated wildlife areas, a Mayan Bee Project to preserve beehives and help new ones form, and keeping felines on the property healthy and safe through its Coco’s Cat Rescue. The resort has also established similar programs for marine turtles, iguanas and other animals, and all guests are invited to learn about these initiatives during their stay. Rates start at $84 pp per night dbl.
