Riviera Maya, Q. R. — Governor Mara Lezama has announced a Maya Well-being Market for the upcoming Maya Train. Lezama says as part of the progress in the construction of the Maya Train, the Maya Market will help provide surrounding towns with more and better tourism opportunities that will lead to econmnic growth.
Lezama said the Maya Well-being Market Model strategy is a cultural and commercial program through which the Maya Train stops in Quintana Roo will offer products by local artisans, producers and embroiderers.
She says exhibitors can have a space to exhibit their creations and in this way, grow economically in the regions who for years were excluded.
“In these markets they will be able to exhibit all the products of our artisans, those people who deserve much more,” she stressed.
Through these types of spaces, the aim is to create environments in which the more than 31 million visitors who will arrive in the state can experience the vast culture of the state’s communities through gastronomy, art, traditions, archaeology, among many other important aspects that make Quintana Roo a perfect place to strengthen the identity of the nation.
Her announcement came after a recent tour of the eight stations and four train stops that will be in Quintana Roo. She says the stops will be a fundamental part for the operation of the Maya Well-being Markets since it will allow visitors from all over the world to enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the state, from the turquoise beaches of Cancun, the Leaning Lighthouse of Puerto Morelos, the multiculturalism of Playa del Carmen, the archaeological zone of Tulum, as well as the traditions of communities in the midst of the jungle and much more.
