ECOTOURISM AT HEART OF NEW TOURISM DEVELOPMENT IN AGUADA, MEXICO
Development works have begun in Playa Mundo Maya, with its 14 kilometres of white beaches and turquoise waters, located between Sabancuy and Isla Aguada towns. International investors are pumping 200 million dollars into the eco-hotel zone project.
The beauty of the beaches of Isla Aguada attracted the attention of international real estate investors who are developing an eco-hotel zone, which they claim will be as important as the Riviera Maya and Tulum, but preserving all the environmental wealth that surrounds this tropical paradise located less than 50 kilometres from Ciudad del Carmen.
“The Playa Mundo Maya project has been proposed by The Global Property Service Group, based in Mérida, Yucatán, and investors from the United States, Canada, Europe, Singapore, South Korea and Mexico participate in it,” said project director Raúl Alberto Gómezllanos Chaires.
“The expectation is that once the Mayan Train is operational, this ecotourism complex will compete with the most attractive destinations in the world, especially in the segment of honeymoons and health retreats,” added Gómezllanos.
In the first stage, the authorisations to begin with the construction of the Ah Kanal K’il development, which will have bungalows and a park of ecotourism activities, have already been obtained from the Secretariat of the Environment and Natural Resources, SEMARNAT.
The developers of Playa Mundo Maya emphasise that special attention is being paid to environmental restrictions to respect issues as sensitive as respect for the space for turtle nesting and other things that were not done in the Riviera Maya and Tulum in Quintana Roo.
