A new hotel development has been approved for construction in Bacalar

Bacalar, Q.R. — A new hotel development is to begin construction in the town of Bacalar in the New Year. The project, Boca de Agua, will be a regional investment of $8 million USD.

The general director of the Boca de Agua SAPI de CV group, Rodrigo Juarez, made the official announcement. He says the hotel is an eco-sustainable project that will conserves 90 percent of the natural elements of the property.

He says the construction of the hotel will make Bacalar a benchmark for investments that go hand-in-hand with development, ecosystem care, innovation, luxury and sustainability.

Juarez said the hotel is an investment of $8 million USD that will generate more than 120 jobs for the southern region of the state. The project will integrate the best of the region’s ecosystems and biodiversity of flora and fauna, with innovation and development including the use of renewable energies.

“The state government, through IDEFIN, has been a great ally for the implementation of Boca de Agua. Without the support of state authorities we would not be making this project a reality right now and, above all, we would not have the certainty of investing in the south of the state. They gave us support for the follow-up of procedures at the federal, state and municipal levels,” Rodrigo Juárez said.

Bernardo Cueto Riestra, General Director of IDEFIN added that “the competitive advantages of the south of the state make it the ideal home for this type of project. This investment will mark a before and after in the hotel and tourism development of Bacalar, bringing with it the consolidation of the demand for more projects in this area aimed at developing under sustainability, technology and innovation schemes.”
