G&F Travel Mexico: Traditional Crafts
We’re taking back the often neglected all-inclusive resort this G&F Travel Issue south of the border. We landed in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort where our relaxing getaway was woven in with Mayan and Mexican culture. This sustainably-driven resort promises to work alongside the Mayan community to celebrate traditions and support their towns. The resort grants space to Maya artists free of charge to sell their crafts to guests. Sandos Caracol is committed to this initiative which benefits the communities and promotes a direct relationship with the people and culture of this region of the world. And that's how we found a Mexican staple and beloved souvenir. Augustin creates textiles using traditional looming techniques on site at Sandos Caracol. We got a behind the seams look into the heart and soul of the vibrant textiles of the region.
