Major tourism investment in Yucatan announced by governor Mauricio Vila Dosal.
11.1 billion pesos will be invested in tourism infrastructure including housing, hotels, restaurants and theme parks.
In this sense, Grupo Xcaret will invest a total of 3.3 billion pesos (around 155 million USD) in 3 boutique hotels in the Valladolid area, in addition to ecotourism parks. Among these, stands out a theme park that will be developed by Grupo Xcaret, focused on the Maya underworld (Xibalbá).
This theme park, that will be called “Xibalbá” (Mayan name of the Underworld), will feature a tour of eight cenotes seeking to recreate the Maya underworld. This enigmatic park is expected to open its doors sometime in the second half of next year.
Grupo Aura will also be investing in different real estate projects located in Telchac Puerto for a total of 2.7 billion pesos (around 135 million USD).
On the other hand, Yucatecan investors are betting a strong sum in the restaurant sector as is the expansion of the Xcanatún Hacienda.
