The Secretariat of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (Sedatu) has launched the third phase of the Jaguar Park project in Tulum, Quintana Roo. The project aims to create six public beach accesses and is being carried out through the Urban Improvement Program (PMU) with an investment of over 189 million Mexican pesos.

During a supervisory tour, the head of the Sedatu, Roman Meyer Falcon, stated that two new beach accesses are being constructed and four existing accesses are being rehabilitated. He also mentioned that 22,000 square meters of the archaeological zone will be intervened in coordination with the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH). The interventions will include landscaping projects, modules for beach management, and opening new spaces for the contemplation of archaeological vestiges.

“We are working with hoteliers to reduce the impact of these facades. The plan is to include vegetation, lighting, and standardize the design of existing establishments. We are also improving the roads that connect with the northern part of the Tren Maya and the most important museum in the region,” Falcon detailed during his visit.

It is worth mentioning that the first phase of the Jaguar Park project, consisting of the 21-kilometer perimeter wall and rest modules on Coba Avenue, has already been completed. The second phase, which involves the southern access and the renovation of the road to the beaches, is currently underway.

Through the PMU, Sedatu has intervened in neighborhoods with a high level of marginalization in Quintana Roo, specifically in the municipalities of Bacalar, Benito Juarez, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Othon P. Blanco, Solidaridad, and Tulum. Since 2019, in coordination with the National Housing Commission (Conavi), 13,747 direct housing assistance have been provided with an investment of 729 million Mexican pesos.

Expanding on the Jaguar Park project, Tulum is a Mexican town located in the Riviera Maya and is home to one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. The town is known for its stunning beaches, turquoise waters, and rich cultural heritage, which includes the archaeological site of Tulum, a pre-Columbian Mayan walled city that dates back to the 13th century.

Tulum has experienced significant growth in recent years, with an influx of tourists leading to an increase in real estate development and infrastructure. The Jaguar Park project aims to balance the development of tourism with the preservation of the area’s natural and cultural resources.

In addition to the creation of public beach accesses and the renovation of existing ones, the project includes interventions in the archaeological zone, which is a protected area due to its cultural significance. The coordination with INAH ensures that the interventions respect the area’s heritage while allowing visitors to appreciate its beauty.

The involvement of the hotel industry is also noteworthy, as it acknowledges the impact that tourism has on the area and shows a commitment to sustainable development. The incorporation of vegetation and lighting, as well as the standardization of design, not only improves the aesthetics of the area but also contributes to its ecological balance.

The PMU’s interventions in Quintana Roo go beyond Tulum and extend to other municipalities, where they aim to improve the living conditions of vulnerable populations. The delivery of direct housing assistance demonstrates a commitment to addressing the housing needs of those who need it most.

Overall, the Jaguar Park project is an example of how development and preservation can coexist, contributing to the sustainable growth of the region while respecting its natural and cultural resources.
