The Cancun hotel sector expressed its total rejection of the Península Cancún real estate project that aims to be built on what is currently the Pok Ta Pok golf course. 

 Given the damage that could be caused to the hotel zone of Cancún due to the saturation of services such as drinking water and drainage, the hotel sector in the northern area of ​​Quintana Roo expressed its total rejection of the Península Cancún real estate project that It is intended to be built on what is currently the Pok Ta Pok golf course.

Jesús Almaguer, president of the Hotel Association of Cancún, Puerto Morelos, and Isla Mujeres, assured that they will promote the resources necessary, in addition to requesting the intervention of the state government and the president of the Republic himself so that the construction of more than 1,300 luxury homes and 850 hotel rooms that are intended to be built in the heart of the hotel zone of Cancun, already exceeded in terms of capacity for providing drinking water, drainage and sewage treatment.

“The only thing this project is going to do is damage the main tourist area in Latin America due to the environmental disaster that a development of these characteristics entails,” said Almaguer Salazar.

He assured that they have sufficient legal elements to promote more protections, since 2023 they have filed appeals against the Urban Development Program of the Benito Juárez municipality that allowed the change in land use and the density of constructions that this project requires to obtain the necessary permits.

For her part, Miriam Cortés, Executive President of the Association of Vacation Clubs of Quintana Roo, assured that the hotel zone of Cancun is a time bomb, which no longer supports more rooms or homes, due to the supply of basic services. It already exceeded its capacity.

“But 1,300 homes, multiply them by three rooms (hotel owners), there you only have 4,000 rooms, just in that little place called Pok Ta Pok; Tell me what they are going to do if the sewage plants are saturated, it is a time bomb and they are doing nothing, enough is enough,” she said.

The hotel leader announced that regardless of whether the issue is addressed together with her counterparts from the Quintana Roo hotel council, Acluvaq is opposed and will do everything in its power to stop this project, for which she insisted that there is no longer capacity. in the hotel zone of Cancun.

According to the hotel businesswoman, the process of carrying out the Urban Development Program on which this project is based“ violated all the rules, they did it wrong, in a way,” which is why she asked that the law be respected.
