Sandos Caracol Resort Property Wedding locations

Sandos Caracol Eco Resort has some incredible wedding locations for you to make your Cancun wedding perfect. 

Caribbean Beach weddings

Thinking of the best Cancun wedding with beach vibes to immerse in? Choose a beach at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. Here’s what makes a beach wedding perfect:

Sandos Caracol Eco Resort is ideal for your ceremony, cocktail hour, reception.  

It has a total capacity of up to 80 people.

The powdery white sand will help you have heavenly vibes.

All the ceremonies can be arranged at 11 am 1/2 pm or 4/5 pm. 

Private events can take place until 11 pm. If your wedding is planned during the turtle nesting season (May-Oct.), you can have weddings until 9 pm. 

In the Seaside Bliss wedding package, the beach location is included. If you have another wedding package and want to plan your wedding at the beach, you will have to pay USD 350 (government fee for beach events).

You are on the sand, so it’s better to go barefooted (no heels at all) 

If you want to have more fun, you can have optional add-ons that include:

Dancefloor (different kinds and sizes of dancefloor are available, including wood, vinyl, LED, and more…)

Decorative, ambient lighting, e.g., string lights, and tiki torches 

Cenote Weddings

Almost all the Cancun wedding venues are unique, so is Cenote. Surrounded by lush tropical plants and located in the center of the resort, Cenote is ideal for your wedding ceremony and the cocktail hour. Check out our recommendations below and here’s what makes a Cenote wedding perfect

Perfect for medium capacity: Up to 70 people.

Ground: Wood floor.

Ceremonies timings: 11 am, 1/2 pm, or 4/5 pm.

For private events, Cenote is available until 7 pm.

Our most unique suggestion is adding a Shaman performance. We recommend you include add-ons, including Mayan spiritual ceremony or the Mayan drums performed by a professional shaman. 

Rooftop Terrace

I know this one is everyone’s all-time favorite Cancun wedding destination. This affordable all-inclusive resort has a stunning rooftop terrace and a fantastic venue to hold your wedding reception and private event.

Here’s what makes a beach wedding perfect:

The rooftop terrace is ideal for the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception.

It has a total capacity of up to 100 people.

The ground consists of solid tiles.

Ceremonies can start at 4/5 pm until 11 pm. 

Private events can occur until 11 pm.

The rooftop terrace’s location is perfect for keeping a flow in your events as the terrace is located on the top of the disco and right behind the beach gazebo.

The central fountain lights up at night.

You can include additional add-ons, including dancefloor, decorative, the string lights, to make your party more fun.

Mapache deck

Smaller Cancun weddings deserve equal attention too. Mapache deck is a perfect location for a smaller ground. And, here’s what you should know about this location. 

It is ideal for a cocktail hour and reception.

It can accommodate up to 50 people.

The ground consists of wooden boards.

Private events can take place until 11 pm.

For smaller intimate/beautiful events, you can choose the mapache deck. It is located right next to the beautiful cenotes and hidden away. The mapache deck is unique in so many ways, the rustic/wooden up with a light color palette is the couple’s all-time favorite decor. The staff always pride themselves in making suggestions and quotes. 

La Ceiba / Kapok Tree

Weddings in Cancun are unique in their nature whether they are symbolic or religious ones. If you are associated with Mayan culture, then you are sure to choose this place. It has Ceiba, which is considered to connect earth, heaven, and the underworld. Together this gives a perfect natural backdrop for your ceremony. 

La Ceiba / Kapok Tree is ideal for a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

It has a total capacity of up to 100 people.

The ground is made up of earthen flooring.

Private events can be held until 11 pm.

Events can not be held on Saturdays until 5 pm max because it’s when the Mayan “Fire of Life” show takes place.

You need to walk approx. Ten minutes walk to reach it. La Ceiba / Kapok Tree is located at the very back of the resort in our jungly Xcalacoco area. 

Spacious reception area for a perfect event that can accommodate 300 people 

The most significant backup location has a capacity of 100 people; if you have unexpected guests at your wedding, you will have to rent a tent.
