    Hello everyone, I'm looking for fellow brides to share our experiences on getting married on this resort as well as to what to expect or watch out for.

    My big day is booked for April 12 2013 and counting down the days, but so nervous and a bit anxious about the whole planning process as I have no control over it.

    Dish it out girls!

          I am getting married at Sandos Caracol on April 15th, 2013, likely our stays will likely overlap.

                    Hello brides-to-be,

                    I recently got married at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort and Spa and when I was trying to decide on this resort, I found it hard because there wasn't a lot of information about getting married here or many pictures.  So in addition to my wedding vows, I vowed to post pictures on this site and the unofficial Caracol Brides site, if my wedding day went well.  As I had a spectacular wedding, here I am following up on my promise to provide future Sandos Caracol brides information and reassurance on this great wedding venue option.  

                     

                    Anyone interested in having a stress free wedding at a unique resort that will bend backwards to accommodate your needs and make your wedding and whole stay feel special, should consider Sandos Caracol Eco Resort.  We got married at 4:00 on the cenote deck for something different than the typical beach setting, and had a great dinner at the new Lirios restaurant in the Royal Elite section from 5:30 to 7:30. In between the wedding and dinner, we were busy with photos, and our guests had drinks from the Royal Elite infinity pool area and watched the photo shoot.    After dinner we went to the Chill Out bar to have the cake and have a few drinks.  This was a great option, the deck area is quite nice with outdoor sofas and hanging lanterns behind the Mexican restaurant.  There was probably enough room for 30 people to sit, stand and dance.  I chose this option to save costs, but if you have a really big group that likes to party, you might want to set up a dance floor on the beach with bar set up.  At 11:00, the Royal Elite restaurant became a disco, so some of us went back to party the night away!  

                     

                    My only minor issue was that the music from the Chill Out bar was simply horrible, I don't know if I could have had them play a CD or hook up an ipod, but the bartender seemed to have limited control to change the music.  We ended up having the bar turn the music way down and asked the mariachi band from the restaurant to come out to play two songs for my husband and I to dance to, and then for my dad and I.   We gave them $10 for two song and it was worth it to get these two traditional dances in.  

                     

                     

                     

                    The whole day was great!  I highly recommend it.  Here are a few pictures to help get a sense of the venue.  If I get some other pictures of the day that might be good for others to see, I will post later.
