The Foundation for Investment in the Riviera Maya confirmed that there is a breakthrough in negotiations to build in Punta Maroma, an amusement park designed by the famous American animation studio DreamWorks.
Wilbert Gutierrez Alvarez, head of the agency, said that the information we have so far is that the park will be developed in an area of 10 hectares, close to the recently built Cirque Du Soleil theater.
“An important group of Mexican investors, such as Carlos Peralta, Fernando Chico Pardo and Angel Rodriguez, among other will take part in the project” he said.
According to sources in the United States, the park planned for the Riviera Maya has similarity to the indoor park, near New York, with attractions based on blockbusters productions such as Shrek , Antz, Shark Tale, Puss in Boots, How to Train Your Dragon and Madagascar, among others.
The project allegedly includes a Water Park, theaters, restaurants and shopping areas. Both restaurants and shopping centers would be thematic as well.
Still not official
Alvarez Gutierrez said that while investors are booking much project information is almost certain that this is announced in the coming months.
Locally, several printed and online publications have denied that the project has the permission of the state government and even the federal government, specifically the Secretary of Tourism, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, who would be the first to know, and to have contact with Jeffrey Katzenberg , producer and founder of the animation firm.
Unofficial reports speak of amounts ranging from 100 to 500 million dollars in investment, although Alvarez Gutierrez said the park Riviera Maya will not be as great as those the company currently have in Dubai or Russia, where the estates exceed 100 acres .
The director of the Trust for the Promotion of the Riviera Maya, Dario Flota Ocampo, said the eventual arrival of such investments to the area would diversify the tourism offer.
Finally, Carlos Constandse, CEO of Experience Xcaret, said that these are the kind of investments which the Mexican Caribbean requires, instead of casinos.
