QUINTANA ROO, (August 09, 2021).- The Xcaret Experiences Group announced an expansion of its emblematic ecotourism park located south of Playa del Carmen, with the intention of increasing its tourist offer.
According to an Environmental Impact Statement (MIA), issued before the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat), Grupo Xcaret plans to invest around 70 million pesos.
The project is called “Areas of Recreation and Services”, which aims to develop an area of 2.4 hectares within the well-known park. The MIA indicates that the individual seeks to build a restaurant, parking lot, ramps, and green areas.
“Activities related to tourism are of vital importance for the state of Quintana Roo, where the project will be located, as it is the state with the highest tourist influx in the Mexican Republic. Competition in this sector, both locally and globally, encourages the creation of tourism projects according to the interests and flow of tourists, as well as being at the forefront to continue to be a point of attraction for tourism and generate jobs.”
The promoter projects the operation of the place for 75 years, in case the approach is approved by Semarnat with compliance with environmental monitoring.
