Cozumel, Q.R. — More berthing space will be made in Cozumel, this time for a ferry service. Grupo Xcaret has been granted environmental authorization for the berthing of their vessels, which they will use to take passengers directly to their parks.
Carmen Joaquín Hernández, president of the Cozumel Business Coordinating Council, recalled that the project was presented to them in 2019, by the CEO of Xcaret, Miguel Quintana Pali.
The two Xcaret boats, each with a 650-person capacity, would use the Cozumel space to moor. It could be shared space with the Ultramar ferry company.
Carmen Joaquín referred to the project as positive, saying it diversifies the economy by possibly receiving publicity from Xcaret, which in turn, could mean more visitors to the island.
The two vessels belonging to Grupo Xcaret have been docked at Isla Mujeres for months as they wait approval to operate. A ticket booth for the Xcaret ferry services has already been constructed on the island.
