TULUM, Mexico – Progress on the Central Access of the Jaguar Park in Tulum has reached an impressive 40% milestone in just three months. This ambitious project encompasses the construction of a Site Museum that will showcase the profound influence of Mayan culture, alongside office spaces and various enhancements. Roman Meyer Falcon, Secretary of Agrarian, Territorial, and Urban Development (Sedatu), unveiled these developments during a recent site inspection.
Falcon, a key federal official overseeing this project, revealed that the specific section of the Jaguar Park, which also includes the North Walkway connecting to the Maya Train, beach access points, and more, has achieved a substantial 38% completion rate.
He emphasized the remarkable workforce driving this construction effort, with over 450 dedicated individuals tirelessly contributing their skills to this section alone. In the broader scope of Jaguar Park, the total workforce exceeds an impressive 1,200 employees, collectively striving to bring this vision to life.
“We’ve made significant progress in the approximately three months since we began. We’re now at 38%, which is quite promising. The foundations are already in place, and we’re currently focusing on the structures adjacent to the Museum. Across from that, we’ll have the three main sections of the museum, and the foundation work for these is also complete. In this section of the Park, we have around 450 people working diligently, and the overall workforce throughout the Park exceeds 1,200 individuals,” Falcon remarked.
A few weeks ago, Meyer Falcon presented the advancements made on the bridge that will interconnect the Archaeological Zone with the Maya Train station, extending into the Jaguar Park. He explained that this elevated connection over Highway 307 (on the Tulum-Playa del Carmen stretch) will seamlessly transport visitors between the existing 600 hectares and the newly developed 300 hectares within this Protected Natural Area.
In response to inquiries regarding the National Park Management Program, overseen by the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (Conanp), Falcon assured that Sedatu has provided comprehensive information. This program’s foundation heavily relies on the operational aspects and hours of Jaguar Park.
“We have supplied all the necessary information to Conanp. They are responsible for managing the operations of the Park, as outlined in the Management Program,” Falcon confirmed.
As the Central Access project continues to take shape, Tulum residents and tourists alike can anticipate a captivating gateway that celebrates the rich Mayan heritage while preserving the natural beauty of this unique coastal destination.
