Discover the natural surroundings

The jungle awaits

The more you explore Sandos Caracol, the more hidden treasures you’ll find. The jungles surrounding this area are overflowing with beautiful discoveries, making your vacation so much more than a typical beach getaway. Visit our Bike Station to get started on the extensive Bike Path that takes you around the edges of the resort property and through the jungle to the wonders of the Xcalacoco area of the resort. Sandos Caracol is also home to several cenotes: natural springs that connect to the region’s massive underground river system.

 

The region’s ancient Mayas believed these crystal clear cenotes to be entrances to the underworld and used them for making sacrifices to the gods. Here, you can snorkel in the large Cenote Cristalino, located just behind the lobby, and cross over the Waterfall Cenote on the suspension bridge. Through the center of the resort runs a winding path along our extensive mangrove forest, allowing you to easily explore the tangled trees of this beautiful ecosystem and see some of the critters and wildlife that call the mangrove “home”.
