Tulum, Q.R. — Through the Urban Improvement Program, the Ministry of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (Sedatu) has finished the first stage of the municipality’s new project.
According to Secretaría de Desarrollo Agrario, Territorial y Urbano (Sedatu), a concrete permiter fence of 21.7 linear kilometers has been constructed. The new fence delimits the Tulum National Park and the Jaguar Flora and Fauna Protection Area.
Sedatu has also reported the completion of a 1.8-kilometre bicycle path on Cobá Avenue. The path is made up of two service modules and a system of planters that serves as a buffer to the vehicle parking area.
The Jaguar National Park project is a public site with a low environmental impact that Sedatu says will value the archaeological monuments and the natural and cultural wealth of the area.
The newly created national park includes land belonging to the Parque Nacional Tulum as well as Mexican Caribbean beaches of the Biosphere Reserve and the Archaeological zone of Tulum.
Sedatu reports that work is also being done on new access areas to the Tulum National Park to better control the entry of visitors as well as provide administrative offices, service areas and public forum and ticket offices along with improving parking in the southern zone of the park.
