The Mexican Caribbean, which has a special significance in Mayan civilization, has a huge potential for the tourism industry, due to the existence of many archeological sites and unique ecological treasures.
Beaches, ancient ruins, and unique plant and animal species go hand in hand with a wide range of tourism facilities in the region, a key element in multidestination programs including the tourist resorts of the area.
Among the region's attractions stands out the Xpu-Ha Ecological Park, a site of singular beauty in the priceless collection of nature and history offered by the Maya Riviera in its condition of tourist haven.
For experts and environmentalists, Xpu-Ha, which means "two-water estuary" in the Mayan language, combines natural beauty, water sports and ecology, which are complemented by the region's wealth.
A beautiful strip of white-sand beaches is a key piece in the Xpu-Ha Ecological Park, which also holds the Manatee cenote (freshwater sinkhole), one of the largest in the region, and the Xpu-Ha lagoon.
The list of attractions for visitors also includes diving programs, tours of cenotes, a bird zoo, enclosures for animals, catamaran excursions, and optional classes for amateur divers.
The park, which is less than 100 kilometers from Cancun, is also a sort of complement for the thousands of people who visit that Mexican beach resort every year.
The facility, which has cabanas and several hotels for those who want to fully enjoy the region's attractions, is an ideal place to practice water sports in its crystal-clear waters.
Xpu-Ha is an all-inclusive resort where visitors can dive, swim and be in direct contact with nature, since it offers a combination of natural beauties, mangrove swamps and jungle, in addition to a cove and places where visitors can watch turtles, crocodiles and flamingos.
Leisure programs in Xpu-Ha aim to provide vacationers with high-quality services, taking advantage of the region's natural resources and achieving ecological balance in a sustainable way.
Precisely, respect for nature is a top priority in the park, where facilities will cover only 3 percent of the coastal area and will be built away from the coast.
That way, the Xpu-Ha Park honors its ecological name, since priority is given to the preservation of the natural environment, which combines the attractions of a region that attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every year.
