This tourist resort will have the cenotes as the main attraction (there are literally thousands of cenotes in the Homun area), and will include a zip line and a suspension bridge, for which some towers will be installed.
It will also have a large parking lot, a restaurant, restrooms, palapas, tourist parador, rest areas and roads that will connect the cenotes.
Solar Panels will be used for the supply of electrical energy in this tourism project, so everything is as ecological ans sustainable as possible.
This project will soon be offered as an additional ecological tourism attraction in Yucatan, projecting the cenotes as a main attraction, but taking care of the environment as a priority.
