Sandos Caracol even brings their sustainable philosophy to life through art—and souvenirs! Their promise to work alongside the Mayan community to celebrate traditions and support their towns is how José Luis de la Cruz Hernández gets to share his art with the world. José is a wood and stone carving artist on site at Sandos Caracol, chipping away to create beautiful Mayan stories to adorn the resort. And if you're lucky, you may be able to score an original piece to take home as a momento of your time south of the border. José explains that each piece he creates has a part of himself in it, creating a cyclical harmony that truly embodies the Mayan culture.
