Honor the elements of local culture

The Tributes

A present to nature, each day of the week

From meditation by the cenote to live versions of the ancient Mayan ball game and even jungle survival skills, you’ll find that Sandos Caracol is about much more than just sun and sand.


Each day of the week is dedicated to honoring a different element of local culture, and on that day all eco activities and Kids Club nature activities will be focused on that element, allowing us to share our knowledge of the region’s history, natural environment, and lore with each and every one of our guests.

Tributes of the week


Earth - Monday

The ancient Mayans who once inhabited these lands used the earth, the trees and the animals in their day-to-day life.


Wind - Tuesday

The wind blows through palm trees, along mangrove forests and across the Caribbean waters here in our corner of the breathtaking Riviera Maya.


Corn - Wednesday

Corn has always been a staple in Mexican cuisine, even up until the present day, as seen in favorite foods like tamales and tortillas. Here in the Yucatan Peninsula, the locals incorporate corn into their everyday life and diet as a main form of sustenance.


Water - Thursday

The waters of the Riviera Maya go beyond the Caribbean Sea. The entire region is filled with thousands of cenotes: natural wells with crystal clear waters that connect to an endless network of underground rivers.


Sun - Friday

The sun gives light, life and warmth to our world, shining bright over every civilization throughout history.


Fire - Saturday

The Mayans of the Yucatan Peninsula have found many uses for fire over the centuries, whether they were cooking food, creating light or performing a ceremony.


Roots - Sunday

From the roots of Yucatan history to the roots of the mangrove forests that provide a home to so many wild animals, the lands of the Riviera Maya are deeply embedded with heritage.
