Sandos Caracol Eco Resort

Sandos Caracol Eco Resort

As part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about the destinations you want to visit by visiting them firsthand. Recently while in Riviera Maya, Mexico, we had the pleasure of spending the day at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort, an All-Inclusive resort set in the lush jungle. This resort impressed us with its dedication to the environment, abundant wildlife, and unique family activities. 

We Recommend This Resort For:  Families with kids of all ages, Environment and Animal Lovers
