CANCUN — A new Mayan Park attraction is set to open in the Cancun Hotel Zone early next year. The new park, which is being constructed in Kilometer 16 of the hotel zone, is nearing completion and expected to open mid-January, reported riviera-maya-news.com.
Mayan Park project leader Francisco Córdova Lira says the park will be completed on time and will begin operating next year. “We are on time and on November 30th it will be finished to start operating in 2018. It will be in October when the promotion of the park begins,” he said.
Mayan Park is expected to open in January of next year, promoting cultural tourism with several main attractions. The park will have replicas of vestige and Maya architecture in a world that make up a Maya universe, zip lines and a boat trip through the Nichupté lagoon, as well as an offer to visit the Mayan Museum of Cancun in front of the park as well as the Ruins of Rey, and a Turibus tour.
Along with rides and access to learning centers such as the museum and Rey Ruins, the park will teach awareness of the Maya culture with promotional material including a book on Maya history and culture that will be distributed to travel agencies beginning October.
“The best attractions will be there, and as you walk through the culture that protects the area, visitors will be able to take a souvenir picture at the promotional letters of Cancun,” he said.
Although announced in 2013, the initial park plan was rejected by the Ministry of Environment and required adjustments. The park is an investment of more than 100 million pesos and will generate 110 jobs. It is expected to draw an average of 150,000 visitors per year. The slated opening date is January 16, 2018. Tickets are set for $99 USD per person.
