Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa was originally built with respect to its surrounding eco-systems in order to preserve the property's pristine nature and wildlife. The resort is the only property on the Riviera Maya with 16 cenotes. Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa has removed sediment from the natural cenotes to allow the fresh water system to flow better. Better water flow allows nutrients to flow freely to the mangroves and out into the ocean to feed the coral reefs.
Recognising its responsibility to sustain the region, Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa currently carries out the following preservation programmes: Recycling and separating trash, Use of biodegradable bottles throughout the resort, Elaboration of compost, Protecting and reproducing indigenous plants, Using recycled paper for all printed material, Improving the flow of the fresh water system, Wildlife conservation.
