New Tulum archaeological zone entrance complete

Tulum, Q.R. — The main entrance area to the archaeological zone of Tulum is complete and operational. Román Meyer Falcón, the head of the Secretaría de Desarrollo Agrario, Territorial y Urbano (Sedatur) toured the facility over the weekend.

Meyer Falcón was on site to hand over the finished project to the the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), who is in charge of the archaeological zones.

“The new access to the archaeological zone of Tulum is now ready and improves the experience of those who visit this historic space. It is a more decent entrance, more environmentally friendly,” Meyer Falcón said.

The new Archaeological Zone of Tulum entrance is located within the Jaguar Park. The Sedatur head said the new facility will have a greater capacity to serve visitors. He also said that other spaces have been built in the Park such as a viewpoint and beach access.

“Another space that we built in Parque Del Jaguar is an access module in which we include offices for the colleagues of INAH and a visitor rest area. A viewpoint that facilitates access to the beaches of Tulum is another element that we built in Parque Del Jaguar,” he explained.

Meyer Falcón says they are still working on the five-kilometer connectivity section between the Jaguar National Park and the Maya Train station in Tulum. He says there will be a direct entrance to the area, which passes through the 300 hectares of the old airfield, which is currently being reforested and illuminated.
