The Secretariat of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (SEDATU) has announced the completion of the first phase of the Jaguar Park project, which is being developed in the Jaguar Flora and Fauna Protection Area (APFFJ) in Tulum National Park (PNT).

The first phase involves the construction of a 21.7 km long fence to separate Tulum National Park from the Jaguar Flora and Fauna Protection Area. In addition, there is a 1.8 km long bike path on Coba Avenue, which includes two utility modules and a system of planters as a buffer zone for the car area.

New walkways are being constructed in the conservation area to control visitor access, provide administrative facilities, service areas, and facilitate movement in the southern area of the park. Additionally, work is being done to construct a service space for visitors to the Archaeological Corridor, which connects the archaeological sites of Tulum and Tankah.

The work includes the construction of a Site Museum, and its executive design is currently in progress. It will feature descriptions of Mayan culture, such as their model of home, honey production, agriculture, biodiversity (with a focus on jaguars), and the use of local medicinal plants.

Furthermore, it is worth mentioning that the Jaguar Flora and Fauna Protection Area is one of the last remaining areas in the region that is home to jaguars and other threatened species. The project aims to preserve and protect this important ecosystem, while also providing educational and recreational opportunities for visitors.

The National Committee of Protected Areas, on the other hand, is working to protect endangered species and promote sustainable tourism, as well as the restoration of ecosystems. The Jaguar Flora and Fauna Protection Area is known for its presence of animals such as jaguars, spider monkeys, and royal flycatchers, as well as different types of vegetation that make up the habitat of 982 species.

Finally, the Jaguar Park is supposed to serve as a connection point with stops that link the project to the Tulum Station of the Mayan Train, as well as providing new job opportunities for various federal agencies. It is important to note that the development of sustainable tourism projects like the Jaguar Park not only contributes to the conservation of natural resources but also benefits the local economy and communities.
