Construction begins for Tulum’s new vertical cemetery

Tulum, Q.R. — The mayor of Tulum was part of the inauguration of the new vertical cemetery being built for the city.

With an investment of 2.5 million peso, mayor Victor Mas Tah was on-hand to lay the first stone of construction. He says that the economic and demographic growth of Tulum has generated a demand for funeral services, and since there is little space in the municipal pantheon, a decision was made to optimize the area by building a vertical cemetery.

He says that when complete, the cemetery will offer a room for funeral services and 160 spaces. “It will be a worthy space for the deceased and families, the cycle of life leads us all to this site,” he said.

He added that the new vertical cemetery is expected to be complete in three months time.
