Sandos Caracol Eco-Resort & Spa in Mexico's Riviera
Maya Debuts Eco-Conscious Guest Rooms

RIVIERA MAYA, Mexico – September, 2011 – Sandos Caracol Eco-Resort and Spa, located along the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, recently became a pioneer of the sustainability trend in Mexico travel by introducing 99 ecological rooms for guests to enjoy. Recently renovated with a sleek modern design and sustainable features, the accommodations give eco-conscious travelers a paradise where they can reach ultimate relaxation.

Interior design elements such as the cool, earthy color palette of dark woods, greens and whites, and contemporary furnishings and fixtures were chosen to compliment the sustainable pieces in the rooms and echo the natural feel felt throughout the resort.

To reduce carbon emissions by 70 percent, the rooms are thoughtfully designed to contribute to the care and preservation of the environment through distinct functions, including:
  • Ultra-efficient low energy air conditioning systems
  • Solar water heating systems in place of gas water heaters
  • Water recycling systems
  • Internal LED lighting
  • Furniture made of wood from certified forests
With affordable rates beginning at $72 a night per person, each eco-room boasts an elegant king-size bed and spacious bedroom and living room areas with private balconies facing the ocean.

Travelers on a “green” vacation to the Resort can also enjoy opportunities such as the guided EcoTours highlighting local environmental initiatives, sea turtle preservation experiences, visiting the NASA Developed Magic Planet Experience or the Sandos Natura all-natural spa treatment.
